The MUFON Symposium was first founded in 1970 to discuss the latest UFO developments and MUFON’s vision for the future. This event will bring together MUFON's own field investigators with UFO researchers, enthusiasts, and experts from around the world, including none other than our very own author, Stanton Friedman.
Friedman will be holding a lecture entitled: "Making Ufology Respectable" on Sunday, September 27th.
The symposium will focus on expanding ufology by opening new doors in academia, industry and the media.
The Symposium will be held at the Hotel Irvine in Irvine, CA from September 24 - 27. Pricing for various packages including single events, day passes, ticketed events, or all weekend passes are now available for both MUFON members and non-members. For more information about accommodations, pricing, events, and speakers, please visit the MUFON site or the event page.
