Event description

Description

Described by James Cameron as “the Academy Awards of Exploration,” The Explorers Club is proud to once again host the world's largest gathering of explorers, with our 114th Explorers Club Annual Dinner. Honoring the world’s leading explorers and field scientists since 1904, more than 1,200 explorers and guests will converge on Times Square at the Marriott Marquis on March 10th, 2018.

This year, we look at Next Generation Exploration: Frontiers, Technology, Innovators

Upon his recognition at our 109th Annual Dinner, the late John Glenn defined exploration as curiosity in action:

“…and if you think about it, curiosity is far more than just wanting to go and look at some new scenery someplace—it’s an attitude...Our whole history has been one of dragon pushing. Pushing dragons back off the edge and filling in gaps on the maps.”

ECAD 2018 will provide guests with a look at the new frontiers being driven by that insatiable curiosity in action, the technologies being developed which push the boundaries of the human experience, and the indomitable spirit of those who continue to push dragons off the map.

The Explorers Club Medal is the highest honor that can be bestowed by the Club, and this year we honor the legendary astronaut Jim Lovell and his four groundbreaking spaceflights—Gemini 7, Gemini 12, Apollo 8, and Apollo 13.

We will also honor Jeff Bezos with the Buzz Aldrin Space Exploration Award; Edith A. Widder with the Citation of Merit; David A. Dolan with The Edward C. Sweeney Memorial Medal; and Gino Caspari & Trevor Wallace will share the New Explorer Award.

Be sure to join us, March 10, 2018 in Times Square, to celebrate the accomplishments of those who have propelled us forward, and a look at what's next.
