2007 Aspen Summit to Explore Evolving Markets
Discount Early Registration Offered Until June 29th

WASHINGTON D.C. - The Progress & Freedom Foundation's 2007 Aspen Summit, to be held August 19th - August 21st, promises to continue its record of offering thought provoking panels and keynote speeches from prominent industry leaders, academia and policymakers. This year's theme, "Making Markets – Critical Information Policy Choices," reflects the challenges and opportunities facing the information sector in the climate of evolving markets and business models. An early registration discount for attendees will be offered until June 30th.

This year's Summit theme of public policy and evolving markets in the information sector will permeate the discussion panels, which will cover a wide range of topics from patent law to communications policy. All activities at the conference will examine the policy, legal and economic implications of the changing nature of markets affecting industries even beyond the technology sector. Past attendees have found the event to produce thoughtful discussion on the issues of the day and provide an insightful look of what's to come in the worlds of business and policy.

The Aspen Summit, which Wired News has compared to the annual Davos event in Switzerland and the Renaissance Weekend in Hilton Head, made its debut in 1995 and has continuously attracted high caliber speakers and attendees who have a stake in policies concerning all aspects of technology. Past speakers have included former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell; Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras; broadcast journalist Charlie Rose; renowned intellectual property law expert Richard Epstein; author and academic Lawrence Lessig; Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; Sun Microsystems President Jonathan Schwartz; Viacom founder Sumner M. Redstone; Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tom Perkins; Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg; and John Thompson, Symantec Chairman and CEO.
