The Marriott Westfields resort hotel venue allowed official and unofficial guests to make their way from the airport as clandestinely as possible, thus avoiding the large number of protesters representing both the progressive â€œOccupyâ€ and conservative â€œTea Partyâ€ movements who gathered at the government security perimeter erected for the â€œprivateâ€ conference.
This yearâ€™s Bilderberg conference featured three guests from Russia. However, unlike the â€œestablishmentâ€ figures from Western nations, including the United States, Britain, Germany, France, and Canada, two of the three Russians represented the anti-Valdimir Putin opposition. Present at Bilderberg 2012 were Anatoly Chubais and Garry Kasparov, leading anti-Putin Russian politicians.
