FreedomFest Vegas meets Wednesday, July 10 – Saturday, July 13 at CAESARS FORUM conference center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The FreedomFest opening festivities will begin Wednesday at noon with a series of stimulating and intellectual sessions designed to “prime the mind” and lead into the Opening Ceremonies general session at 4:30 and Welcome Reception and Grand Opening of the Exhibit Hall at 7:00.

During the conference dates of July 10 through July 13, there will also be multiple evening social events at the conference and plenty of Vegas nightlife to enjoy.

The McCarran International Airport is just minutes away from the Vegas Strip and CAESARS FORUM conference center. 

It’s an easy ride by taxi or Uber/Lyft. You can also rent a car.

When you register for FreedomFest, we begin a series of actions to prepare for attendance, including those that include hard costs. As we approach the conference start, those costs and guarantees increase. Therefore, we must institute a cancellation fee to help us cover those costs in the event that you must cancel before the event. We thank you for your understanding.


Refund Policy
A 20% fee of the registration amount paid will apply to all registration cancellations through May 31. Starting June 1, the cancellation fee is 50% of the registration amount paid. Starting July 1, there is no refund. 

Transfer Policy You can choose to transfer your registration, rather than cancel, for an equivalent registration at the next FreedomFest at any point before July 10. This is a registration transfer, not a monetary credit.

Special Events Cancellation Special event purchases are 100% refundable through May 31 and 50% refundable between June 1 and June 30. Starting July 1, there are no refunds for special events.

Hotel Cancellation Hotels can be cancelled without penalty 72 hours before check-in date. A first night’s refundable deposit is taken when the reservation is made. Changes to hotel reservations must be made through the hotel directly. 

Lost Badge Fee Please note that in the case of a lost or misplaced badge or other ticket, requiring reprinting, will incur a $20 replacement fee.

Starting mid-June, you can access the Official Agenda Guide on our website to see the full schedule of events, including all the sessions, exhibitors, receptions, lunches and films.

We encourage you to install and use the free app to highlight which sessions you’d most like to attend each day and see the latest updates. All seating is unreserved, first-come/first-served. Starting in June, download the Sched app and search for FreedomFest 2024 to install the schedule onto your phone.

All FreedomFest sessions and the Exhibit Hall will be located in the convention meeting space at The Mirage Hotel & Casino. 

We’ve also included book signings with the authors of 2024’s most important books in the exhibit hall during coffee breaks and during the Welcome Reception – come meet our authors!

Add our special event breakfasts, luncheons, and receptions, including the Farewell Banquet on Saturday night.

We work year-round to add speakers and content to FreedomFest. As each speaker and title is confirmed, we update our website. Visit the Speakers section on the website.

We suggest business or business casual attire for all conference sessions. The Farewell Banquet is business-formal or cocktail dress.

Please note that the conditions indoors may feel chilly for some, but warm for others – we always get comments that it’s both, at the same time! Please dress with layers so you will be comfortable.

Temperatures outdoors in Las Vegas will be extremely hot and dry. We recommend staying indoors during the daytime.

Please sign up for your registration pass and any special events (VIP breakfasts, lunches, receptions or the banquet) through FreedomFest.

Please sign up for your accommodations through the links on our Hotels page.

While there is no specific age restriction, FreedomFest is geared toward older students and adults. We do not have any programming for young children. Children ages 12 and up will need a badge, but children under the age of 12 can be at FreedomFest as long as they are accompanied by their parent or legal guardian at all times. If a child is being disruptive, we ask that you please leave the session.

Choice reigns supreme at FreedomFest, and attendees often face the dilemma of two sessions at the same time that look appealing! If you are attending the conference with a guest, we suggest splitting up and going to the two sessions separately….it gives you great catch-up conversation when you meet back up for coffee, lunch, or dinner at the end of the day!

Also, barring any technical difficulties, we record all sessions at FreedomFest and make those sessions available over the course of the year on our YouTube channel.

All conference sessions are unreserved, first-come/first-served seating. Special event breakfasts, lunches, and the Farewell Banquet are restricted to ticket holders, but are still unreserved seating, except for the VIP tables at the banquet and head tables at VIP events.

There will be a light attendee breakfast in the Exhibit Hall available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings, as well as coffee breaks throughout each conference day.

There are several eateries near CAESARS FORUM and on site at Harrah’s, LINQ, and Caesars Palace, as well as several sponsor or VIP lunches options at FreedomFest. 

We recommend taking full advantage of the LINQ Promenade, steps away from CAESARS FORUM, Harrah’s, and LINQ, and just across the Strip from Caesars Palace.

Anthem Film Festival screenings take place at the convention meeting space at CAESARS FORUM conference center along with FreedomFest. The exact location for screenings and follow-up panels will be announced in the spring of 2024. Film screenings shown anywhere else are NOT part of the Anthem Film Festival.

Access to the Anthem Film Festival is included in all FreedomFest registration passes.
