The Experience

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to fill your summer with learning and inspiration that will last the whole year.

The Objectivist Summer Conference (OCON) is the premier gathering of Ayn Rand fans. This week-long conference, hosted annually since 2003 by the Ayn Rand Institute, is the perfect place to explore new ideas and connect with like-minded people.

At OCON, you’ll experience thoughtful and inspiring talks by top experts on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, take part in popular social events, attend moving artistic performances, and enjoy late-night conversations with new and old friends.
