CAP Times Idea Fest

We’re Going Virtual

SEPT. 26th – OCT. 10th, 2020

Life will be forever altered by COVID-19 and other events of 2020. What we don’t know is what the future will look like here in Madison and Wisconsin. In year four of Cap Times Idea Fest, our theme is focused on how we think about the future and influence it.

Reach A Better State

This virtual event promises to be just as thought-provoking as in previous years, covering topics relevant to your life and future in Wisconsin. Over the course of two weeks, you will be able to experience 20+ sessions in the convenience of your own home or office – for free!

Viewing sessions is simple. At the time listed next to each one, the videos will be released here on Watch on your computer, phone, or tablet. If you have a smart TV, Apple TV, Roku, or other streaming device, you can watch the sessions on the Cap Times YouTube channel.
