The Bilderberg Meeting is an annual conference established in 1954 by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands "to foster dialogue between Europe and North America". Participants are European and North American political leaders, experts from industry, finance, academia, and the media. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule. The Bilderberg meetings are also unofficially called the "Bilderberg Group", "Bilderberg conference" or "Bilderberg Club"
Bilderberg Members Bill Clinton and Bill Gates . Clinton attended the conference when he was Governor of Arkansas in 1991 and Gates attended in 2010. Bilderberg meetings are actually rather casually run. They do not have an agenda and they encourage informal discussions about major issues that face the world. No votes or resolutions are made and members are encouraged to listen and gather insights.
Other members of the Bilderberg group include Prince Charles, who attended in 1986 and his father Prince Philip who attended in 1965 and 1967. The original Bilderberg conference was held in Oosterbeek, Netherlands in 1954 and Royalty from the Netherlands, Belgium and Norway regularly attend the event.
