For early attendee arrivals, the event starts off on Thursday May 28 with a tour to explore the beauty of noted Joshua Tree area UFO sighting locations Giant Rock and Crystal Hill. That evening is an Attendees Meet & Greet to get to know each other before the conference officially begins.

Truly at Contact in the Desert, there is something for everyone!

The speakers and subjects this year will be astounding!

Charles Halt and Nick Pope. • Introduction to the eyewitnesses of the USS Nimitz Event who are engaged with the UAP Expedition Group researching the continual sightings of UFO's along the coast of California. • Uncovering the mysteries of the pyramids and evidence for an archive under the Sphinx, with Dr. Manu Seyfzadeh, and guarded secrets of sacred sites with Brad Olson, Maria Wheatley, Freddy Silva and others. • Exploring the physics of paranormal phenomena with Dr. Michael Dennin. • Fulbright professor Dr. Bruce Solheim will talk about the worldwide-growth in alien abductions and its relationship to PTSD. • Ancient Aliens host Jason Martell will be discussing aliens and artificial intelligence as a mode for communication Brooks Agnew, John Desouza, Dr. Diana Pasulka, David Adair, Dr. Michael Salla, and others will talk about space based manufacturing, back-engineering, the newly founded Space Force, Helium Three, and asteroid mining as the future of energy on Earth. Deep Prasad, a 23-year-old Silicon Valley prodigy, considered the next Einstein, will discuss our future integration with technologically advanced non-human species.  Russell Targ will share the History of Remote Viewing and its techniques alongside Stephan Schwartz, Simeon Hein and Paul Smith.

Close to 100 people attending the annual Contact in the Desert event in 2016 witnessed several UFOs at close range. Luckily, a documentary film crew captured the incident. Reports and video of the sighting were covered in the Daily Express, Coast to Coast AM, and other outlets. Also in 2016, in Indian Wells, the conference’ new home, dozens of bright star-like orbs moving together rapidly across the sky, were observed on July 23. Similar occurrences were documented in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Will there be a sighting in Indian Wells for the event’s 8th year?
