The Bilderberg Meetings aims to bring together over a hundred political leaders and experts from industry, finance, the media and the academy to take part in the annual conference. The conference provides a forum for off-the-record discussions about the trends and major issues facing the world, according to the Bilderberg website. Scores of demonstrators turned out to protest what they call the conference’s lack of transparency.   AFP PHOTO / JUSTIN TALLIS        (Photo credit should read JUSTIN TALLIS/AFP via Getty Images)
