no one knows what goes on behind closed doors ... not charlie but rich of course :)
the official version :  
The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 - 6 June 2010. The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations. Approximately 130 participants will attend of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America. About one-third is from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion.  
Bilderberg takes its name from the hotel in Holland, where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record discussions would help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post-war period. The Cold War has now ended. But in practically all respects there are more, not fewer, common problems - from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment, from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. It is hard to think of any major issue in either Europe or North America whose unilateral solution would not have repercussions for the other.  
Thus the concept of a European-American forum has not been overtaken by time. The dialogue between these two regions is still - even increasingly - critical.  
What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy; the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated; the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely.  
In short, Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.  
Bilderberg's only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, fifty-seven conferences have been held. The names of the participants are made available to the press. Participants are chosen for their experience, their knowledge, and their standing; all participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.  
There will be no press conference. A list of participants is appended (this is the most interesting part!).

johnny2000: list of everyone who attended 3 times or more:
beaglebot: I've never understood why anyone gave a shit about the Bilderberg Meeting.
FoolProof: Conspiracy theorists think it's a meeting of the leaders of the Illuminati.
Dyskolos: /me takes note...  
...Foop knows too much. I must signal the others with my radio-watch that Project Malachite is a GO.
my problem with the fierce enemies of the bilderbergers
johnny2000: most of the protest comes just from people with a blind spot of dealings of the right, e.g. the major spanish critic estulin is sponsored by the italian ultranationalists lega nord.  
more worrisome are the bohemian grove meetings of the military,industrial and political elites, usually 100% republican, ex-german social democrat chancellor helmut schmidt was so far the only one present at both secretive gatherings.
LowFlyingMule: Those bastards are planning on taking over the world! Them and the corrupt British banking system  
are workin' with teh joos to establish NEW WORLD ORDER!  
/tinfoil on
FoolProof: Honestly, I can't wait for the Jews to start a new world order. It's bound to be hilarious and it will give your cousin a deal.
