The inaugural NaplesNEXT Ideas Festival promises equal parts Big Thinking and Big Fun, March 17-19, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. More than 20 thought-provoking workshops, panel discussions and interactive experiences will feature 50 internationally recognized experts and cultural icons.

Former First Lady Laura Bush keynotes NaplesNEXT, joining a robust lineup of scientists, architects, designers, journalists, political leaders, and sports figures. The festival also features two elegant evenings with award-winning Napa vintners, nationally recognized mixologists, as well as national and local James Beard Foundation chefs.
