Awesomeness Fest is a transformational event that brings together people who are driven to change the world – entrepreneurs, authors, technophiles, mavericks, artists and visionaries alike. Here, you receive powerful training, profound mind shifts, groundbreaking ideas, deep connections, incredible adventures and unique opportunities to give back, so you can play an even bigger game and significantly expand your ability to accomplish bold things.

What’s Awesomeness Fest really like? You’d have to be there to know, but watch this video to get an idea…



Connect with world-changing leaders.

Like an intimate getaway, Awesomeness Fest lets you learn, grow and forge deep friendships with amazing people who will help nurture and support your grand visions.

It’s also interesting to note that about one third of Awesomeness Fest participants are professional speakers. These are the kind of people who speak at TED events, write bestselling books and start award-winning companies. And yet they come to Awesomeness Fest not only to speak, but to connect and listen. This is what makes Awesomeness Fest truly unique.

Like being at a world change summit, it’s a personal revelation that inspires you to give back to the world in unique and impactful ways and push humanity forward.

And like being at a festival that merges Burning Man, TED and an exotic vacation – you’ll get to dance the night (and day) away at incredible parties and go on breathtaking excursions, all in the midst of a paradise location.

7 REASONS TO BE PART OF AWESOMENESS FEST

1. You’ll Meet Amazing People

What amazes those who attend Awesomeness Fest the most is the sheer quality of our participants; you’ll be just as impressed with the person sitting next to you as with the person on stage.


And that’s because we attract some of the world’s most amazing people.

These include Inc. 500 CEOs, bestselling authors, award-winning change agents, TED speakers, visionary entrepreneurs and world-class speakers. About one-third of Afest attendees are professional speakers and yet they come to Awesomeness Fest not only to speak, but to connect and listen.

This is what makes Awesomeness Fest truly unique.

One of the things you’ll enjoy most at Awesomeness Fest is our trademark Magical Moments. Designed by our team, these are engineered experiences that take you through a wide range of emotions, and result in profound connections with other participants at a level unlike any other event you’ve ever attended.

The result? You may walk away with new business partners, new best friends, and who knows? Maybe even your soulmate ;)

Previous Magical Moments included a stunning sunset catamaran cruise, a SuperHero party, live jam sessions, bonfires and walks on the beach at 3am. As for this year’s, you’ll just have to wait and see…

We keep the event diverse by ensuring a 50-50 man to woman ratio, with people from all age groups. Awesomeness Fest really is about the people, and as a result is strictly by invite only. We intentionally limit the event to no more than 350 people to keep it cozy and intimate. If you’d like to receive an invite, the first step is to sign up. Then only will we get in touch with you and figure out whether you have what it takes to join the Tribe ;-)

See our impressive list of Tribe members who have attended Afest here.

Greg Habstritt, Founder of SimpleWealth

“Make the decision, take the leap.. it was an absolutely life changing event.”



James Colquhoun, Producer of Food Matters and Hungry for Change

“Combines business, networking, and great information all with people that are playing at a really high level.”



2. Take Your Life to the Next Level

 

Designed to teach you how to bring out the most of your capabilities as a human being, Awesomeness Fest shares the juicy stuff you wish they had taught you in school. Whatever it is you do, whether you’re a seasoned entrepreneur or looking for your next business idea, the experience will teach you to do more, accomplish more, and get to your goals faster while having the lifestyle you desire, having tons of fun and simply enjoying life.

Almost every successful entrepreneur or visionary will tell you the same thing:

Their secret to success isn’t some genius business strategy or the latest marketing knowledge. It’s always “something internal”. At Awesomeness Fest, you’ll connect with highly successful people who are more than willing to share the mindset shifts, the personal growth practices and the key learnings that took their lives to the next level.

Awesomeness Fest is focused on three themes:

VISION
How to create..

stunningly huge dreams, goals and visions of the impact you want to create in the world and the life you want to live.

MASTERY
How to create..

the right present mindset, emotions and thought mastery to be happy, even before you attain your goals.

CONNECT
Create connections..

with other brilliant people so that you have the right networks, support structures and friendships to keep you soaring.

A Sharing of Profound Entrepreneurial Wisdom

Most Awesomeness Fest speakers are given 20 minutes to digest their key life learnings into one powerfully succinct presentation. By the time you leave Awesomeness Fest, you’ll have a host of amazing ideas that you can start implementing straightaway to play an even bigger game, grow your business and kick butt at what you love doing. Ideas that would have taken you years, even decades to learn by yourself.

But Awesomeness Fest is about much more than passively listening to lessons – it’s about total immersion. We do this through “Consciousness Engineering,” a unique learning process which immerses your mind, body and spirit into carefully selected experiences, exercises and activities designed for profound and lasting results.

Tiffany Persons, Founder Shine on Sierra Leone

“I’m truly inspired in a way that I haven’t been at other conferences.”



Lisa Nichols, CEO and Founder of Motivating the Masses

“I’ve met new friends who become new business partners every single year and as a result, my business has grown.”



3. Enrich Your Social Sphere

If you believe that you are the sum of your five closest friends, you’ll love this aspect of Afest. A unique curated community.

In 2013, nearly 3000 people applied for 500 spots between both Awesomeness Fests.


A Unique, Select Tribe of Entrepreneurs

When you attend Awesomeness Fest, you automatically enter our Tribe. Everyone in the Tribe is connected through a private Facebook group, and we stay in touch throughout the year through gatherings held across the world.

One of our most memorable gatherings was held in photographer Philip Dixon’s $13.5 million estate. Over 200 people showed up for a mesmerizing evening of conversation, drinks and performances from the likes of artist Malek Houlihan. Speaker Sean Stephenson presented, and even used the event to propose to his girlfriend. For the after party, California’s No. 1 hotelier Chip Conley gave us his hotel rooftop.

That’s just a small taste of what happens when the influential, brilliant and fun people in our tribe come together… and we do it at least 3 – 4 times a year.

When you join Awesomeness Fest, you become a part of this tribe, and you get on a first-name basis with every amazing person in it. And that’s why we’re very selective about the people we invite to join us.

Drew Canole, Fitness Expert

“Everyone I’ve communicated with is now like a family member to me, it’s a global tribe.”



Michael Ellsberg, Author of “The Education of Millionaires

“The amazing thing is that we don’t focus so much on business, but on building relationships.”



4. You’ll Live It Up In Paradise

We make it a point to hold Awesomeness Fest in some of the most jaw-dropping stunning locations in the world.

We believe that gorgeous locations play a big part in helping you connect with your fellow attendees. Imagine huddling up on the beach, listening to the waves, curling your toes in the sand and sharing a priceless moment with a few kindred souls as you stare off into the dream-like sunset. That, to us, is heaven on earth.

So, if you’re thinking about taking a few days off to rejuvenate, consider Awesomeness Fest. It’s an event that energizes you instead of draining you. Think of it as a big group vacation with your soon-to-be best friends.


Worldwide Stunning Locations

In 2010, we had bonfires and dance parties on the beaches of Costa Rica. In 2011, we surfed and watched the sunset while sipping cocktails aboard a catamaran in Maui, Hawaii. In 2012, we jet-setted to the Mayan Riviera in Mexico where we visited ancient Mayan ruins and had our closing event in an underground temple.

Then, in 2013, Afest expanded to two locations: Bali, Indonesia and the Dominican Republic where we immersed ourselves in Balinese culture and had a party in the middle of the ocean in the Caribbean.

And now, in 2014, we’re heading to Thailand, renowned for its rich culture and history, delectable food, friendly people and stunning pristine beaches.

5. You’ll Make a Difference

 

Awesomeness Fest is more than an event – it’s a movement. Because of the profound impact it leaves on people, we’ve noticed musicians, performers and speakers waiving their fees. A-list speakers who normally leave immediately after their session instead stay for the full show. And a vast majority of participants become inspired to change the world in even bigger ways.

All Profits are Donated to Innovative
Not-For-Profit Causes

After seeing the sheer amount of time and talent donated to the event, in 2011 Afest became non-profit. Today, all profits from Awesomeness Fest are put back into making the event as memorable as possible, and towards a cause supported by the tribe.

Past beneficiaries have included Patricia Arquette’s GiveLove, dedicated to improving global sanitation; Lynne Twist’s Pachamama Alliance, a foundation that helps preserve over 8 million acres of rainforest in the Ecuadorian Amazon; and Tiffany Person’s Shine on Sierra Leone, which is dedicated to creating local sustainable programs to promote thriving self-sufficent communities.

In 2013, our proceeds benefited the X Prize Foundation, whose mission is to use incentivized prize competitions to help bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.

All this means is that when you sign up for Awesomeness Fest, every dollar you spend goes back towards giving you an awesome experience, and making a massive positive impact on the planet.

Peter Diamandis, Founder and Chairman of the X Prize Foundation

“On behalf of the entire X Prize organization, we are so grateful!”



Patricia Arquette, Actress and
Co-Founder of GiveLove

“Thanks to the generous support from Awesomeness Fest we were able to embark on the largest household sanitation pilot project in Haiti and provide sanitation solutions to thousands of people.”



6. You’ll Have Heaps of FUN

Many Awesomeness Fest participants call it the most exciting experience of their lives. Why? Maybe it’s the paradise locations. Maybe it’s the amazing people. Maybe it’s the Magical Moments. Or maybe we’re just really, really good at throwing an awesome party (some participants even said our pirate party was the best party they’d ever been to).

“It’s been the seminar I don’t miss every year, if you can even call it a seminar.”


Vasavi Kumar, Entrepreneur

“Awesomeness Fest is not a conference, it’s not a seminar. It’s an experience. It’s a lifestyle. It’s magical.”



7. You’ll Be Part of a Strictly Invite-Only Event

What most amazes Awesomeness Fest participants is the sheer quality of our participants. Dr. Srikumar Rao, a highly popular MBA lecturer who’s spoken at Google and has been featured in Businessweek and Fortune, says he was “humbled” by the people he met at the event. Lisa Nichols, a bestselling author and featured guru in The Secret, said this was perhaps the only event where she didn’t just fly in to speak – she decided to stay because of the people.

It’s also interesting to note that Awesomeness Fest really is about the people, and as a result it’s strictly by invite only.

We intentionally limit the event to no more than 250 – 350 people, so we can keep it intimate.
