The 12th Annual Freedom Conference: A Victory for Liberty

September 8, 2020

“It was such an honor to present in such a high-profile capacity to The Steamboat Institute. Your team overcame all COVID-related organizing challenges to present a flawlessly run conference filled with high-powered speakers and a highly educated and politically active audience.” – HEATHER MAC DONALD, Best-selling author and Fellow at the Manhattan Institute
“The Steamboat Institute’s Freedom Conference is hands down the best policy conference in the country. A wide variety of topics are covered by national figures with incredible knowledge to share. It’s like finally having a seat at the table at the highest levels of government.” – MANDY CONNELL, Host of The Mandy Connell Show, KOA Radio and iHeart Media
“Being around so many young freedom fighters and the people that help support their work was invigorating and inspiring! I have SO MANY AMAZING ideas for the future of the movement that came from this amazing weekend. I hope to participate again!”
– ROB SMITH, Iraq War Veteran and author of “Always a Soldier”
Last weekend, 200 guests and high-profile speakers gathered at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek to discuss the most pressing issues facing our nation.
