Members Joining us in Costa Rica from Around the World

The A-fest tribe is a community of people who share similar values and have grand visions of the kind of impact they want to have on the world.

We curate and attract amazing leaders, thinkers and doers – from Inc. 500 CEOs, best-selling authors and award-winning artists to growth-hacking entrepreneurs, business owners and world-class coaches.

Both speakers and attendees are part of the tribe, equally immersed in the experience to network, connect, bond and share. You’re just as likely to meet the owner of a $50-million-dollar business as you are to meet a young up-and-coming entrepreneurial star. This diversity creates an extraordinary environment that you won’t find at conventional networking conferences.
