Nikola Tesla 70th Year Commemorative Conference

Presented by the Tesla Science Foundation

New Yorker Hotel, NYC

More and more, the secret of Nikola Tesla is getting out.

    Topics:
  • Life and work of Nikola Tesla
  • How, Why and by Whom was Tesla Removed from History?
  • What Happened to Tesla's Estate Upon His Death?
  • Misappropriation of Tesla's Patents, works and name
  • Tesla Today: Continuing Tesla's Work
  • Bringing the Tesla Community Together
  • Movies, Books and Other Works in Progress
  • Worldwide Tesla Communication Center

Additionally, we have planned a trip to Tesla's lab at Wardenclyffe on Long Island as well as a walking tour (weather permitting) of the places Tesla frequented and worked in New York City.

A meeting time will be dedicated to bringing together the various Tesla-related organizations around the world and we will discuss how we can work together to achieve our common goals.

In addition to the conference we are planning to host a meet and greet event as well as a commemorative dinner will be separate from the conference cost.

We have worked out a special rate with the New Yorker Hotel for those attending the conference.
