Philly has been called a lot of things; dull is not one. This year is no exception: We currently have a booming food scene, the country’s most controversial D.A., a biotech industry that’s teetering on a critical cusp, an attorney general who just took on the Catholic church, a rapper and a billionaire who are on a social justice crusade, and a councilwoman who is trying to govern a neighborhood that’s home to the worst opioid crisis in the country.

And guess what? All of those people will be speaking at Philadelphia magazine’s ThinkFest 2018. We are humbled by the important newsmakers who are using our platform to share their experiences and big ideas; see below for the full lineup, event info, and how to buy tickets.
