De geheime conferentie, waar ook koningin Beatrix, Willem Alexander en minister-president Balkenende aanwezig waren, vond plaats in het stadje Chantilly in Virginia van 5 t/m 8 juni jl.


Er waren in totaal rond de 120 gedelegeerden, waarvan ongeveer een derde uit de Verenigde Staten.
De rest uit Canada en de landen van Europa.
Dit alles onder voorzitterschap van de Belgische topindustrieel Etienne Davignon, vice-voorzitter van Suez-Tractebel en lid van de European Round Table of Industrialists.
