Thin Air Festival

  • Park City, UT 84060 (map)
Thin Air Festival - Concert

The third annual summit taps into the talents of creative thinkers and determined doers for three days of high altitude experience, including keynote talks, break-out-sessions, outdoor adventures and parties to celebrate and explore how individuals, teams and organizations perform at the highest levels. This cross-industry mash-up brings together diverse perspectives and leaders from retail, tech, sports and recreation, entertainment, healthcare, finance and beyond to share experiences and launch new ideas.

Past speakers at Thin Air have included business luminaries such as Under Armour CEO and founder Kevin Plank, former CEO of Charles Schwab David Pottruck and more than 75 leaders from companies such as Red Bull, Intermountain Healthcare, Zions Bank, HBO, Airbnb, Bank of America, Salesforce, Modsy and Deloitte.

The 2018 program will cover a cross-section of topics that have wide applications across diverse industries to inspire creativity and innovation. Session highlights include an Opening Night keynote on the Future of Commerce and breakouts covering The Circle of Product / Brand / Distribution and Customer Relationships and The Place of Place, a comparison of retail channels with brick and mortar, social selling and traditional direct-to-consumer representatives.

One of the highlights of Thin Air 2018 will be a free-to-the-public Main Street concert and homecoming parade for the 100-plus, Utah-based athletes returning from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games, presented in partnership with Youth Sports Alliance.  Bill Malone, president and CEO of the Park City Chamber and founding organization of Thin Air notes, “Some of these 2018 Olympians watched the 2002 Games here in Park City while perched on their parents’ shoulders. We like to think Park City is a meaningful part of their successful Olympic journeys.”

The festival caters to both individuals and corporate groups of all shapes and sizes and this year, Snowsports Industries America (SIA), the trade group of winter sport manufacturers and retailers, will join Thin Air 2018 as a partner, offering think tanks, panels and entertainment throughout the festival.
