About The Amaz!ng Meeting
The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) has hosted its annual Amaz!ng Meeting since 2003 as a way to promote science, skepticism and critical thinking about paranormal and supernatural claims to the broader public. “TAM,” as it’s known by regular attendees, has been held in Las Vegas, NV since 2004 and has become the world’s largest gathering of like-minded science-advocates and skeptics. People from all over the world come to the Amaz!ng Meeting each year to share learning and laughs with fellow skeptics and distinguished guest speakers. Nearly 1,700 people attended The Amaz!ng Meeting 2011 in Las Vegas.
The JREF has also sponsored Amaz!ng Meetings in London, England and Sydney, Australia, and through its ongoing conference-at-sea program, called Amaz!ng Adventures, it has presented educational sessions on cruises to the Bermuda Triangle, Alaska, the Galapagos Islands, Mexico, and the eastern Caribbean.
TAM Las Vegas is a four-day conference, featuring workshops, panel discussions, and presentations by leading thinkers and celebrities, and evening performances and parties for attendees. Various sessions are also made available for free online as digital video and through various science and skeptic podcasts.
