It’s not in Aspen or the Alps — the new place for ideas is the Windy City.

Chicago Ideas Week, powered by The Innovation Foundation and us at TIME, was announced this week. From October 10-16, Chicago Ideas Week will host speeches and events with special guests like Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and actors Joan Cusack and Fran Drescher. The week is presented by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former Mayor Richard M. Daley, and Brad Keywell, a co-founder of Groupon and Lightbank.
