The first U.S. Boglehead Conference took place in Miami Florida on March 10-11, 2000. The Conference has since become an annual affair. In Taiwan, the Taiwan Bogleheads have held two conferences, the first in 2013; the second in 2015.
The U.S. conferences
The conferences include a social reception, a keynote address, panel discussions, presentations, question and answer sessions, and a book signing session. The book signing session is usually accompanied by breakout sessions. The conferences also include a visit to the Vanguard campus, where Vanguard officials provide conference attendees with workshops, panel discussions and a question and answer segment.
Upcoming conference dates are announced in the Bogleheads forum, the Financial Page blog and The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy. Subscription for the event is usually completed within two or three days after the announcement.
