The Saratoga Weekend (aka "Camp David") - 20th Anniversary


In 1998, David N. Deutsch & Company established The Saratoga Weekend (aka “Camp David”), a 3-day, invitation-only, biennial gathering of business executives, professional advisors, capital providers, journalists, authors, scientists, educators, public officials and others, held in August in Saratoga Springs, New York.

It's a presidential retreat of sorts (just like the other "Camp David").

The conference explores issues of closely-held and family companies (business strategy, governance, growth, financing and exit)... and issues of science, health, art, philanthropy and personal well being. We call it business-and-broader discussion.

It’s a conference, but it’s an un-conference. It’s about learning and long-term relationships. It's as family-friendly and fun as it is educational and good-for-business. Spouses encouraged to attend, and children welcome. It’s a gathering of some of the smartest, most successful, and most giving people we know. Clients and friends who enjoy business and the business of life.

20th Anniversary Weekend - Planned Agenda


Welcome Reception. Meet other early arrivals for refreshments, hors d'oeuvres and a special-guest kick-off discussion at Saratoga's legendary and beautifully-restored Adelphi Hotel.


Breakfast in the breathtaking Arches Room of the Gideon, overlooking the 2,379 acre Saratoga Spa State Park. Let the "discussion" begin.

Business Sessions: "Welcome to Saratoga - Mayor Meg Kelly," "Private Company Growth... and Exit," "The Boards-Eye View" "Andrew Mellen, the Most Organized Man in America," Davia Temin on Crisis Communications," "Family Business, Family Office, Family Life," "From the Left and the Right," and more. These business-and-broader discussions -- and the relationships that develop from them -- are the centerpiece of The Saratoga Weekend.

Afternoon downtime in Saratoga. Stroll Broadway, visit Saratoga Lake, see Saratoga Battlefield, visit the National Museums of Racing or Dance. Or, just catch some "rays" at the Victoria Pool in the Spa State Park.

Then, back to your hotel to dress for...

Our Saratoga Weekend's 20th anniversary celebration at Saratoga Polo Club. Enjoy the opening matches of the Ylvisaker Cup Polo Tournament, music, food-and-drink, and a continuation of the discussion and camaraderie that makes Camp David a legendary event.


Day at the Races: The 139th Running of The Alabama Stakes and the annual running of The David N. Deutsch & Company. The perfect end-cap to your Saratoga Weekend in our special section at Saratoga Racecourse. More discussion and as much "handicapping" as you'd like. See you in the Winner's Circle. Stay until the final race or leave after a few, and return home in time to enjoy your own summer family weekend.
