DescriptionThe third Bilderberg, in West Germany. The subject of a report by Der Spiegel which inspired a heavy blackout of subsequent meetings.

Not to be confused with the 1955 March Bilderberg

The September 1955 Bilderberg Meeting was the third Bilderberg meeting and the second one that year. It had participants from 11 European countries, the United States and Canada. All were male.[1] It was held at Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany.[1] The 78 guests included 19 business executives, 25 politicians, 4 financiers, 2 editors/journalists and 6 academics. The second Bilderberg meeting that year (after the Bilderberg/1955 March conference) it was the subject of a report by Der Spiegel, which was the most informative such report in the commercially-controlled media for years, perhaps decades.

Group size research

The organisers of the Bilderberg were apparently conducting research on how group size would affect the meetings, since the smallest ever Bilderberg, just 42 guests, was held that March, while the next meeting was the 1956 Bilderberg, which at 147 guests was possibly the largest ever.


The Agenda of the October 1955 Bilderberg has been leaked and is now online.[1]

1. Review of Events since the Barbizon Conference

2. Article 2 of The North Atlantic Treaty Organization

3. The Political And Strategic Aspects Of Atomic Energy

4. The Reunification Of Germany

5. European Unity

The promotion of supranational group as part of a European Deep State, dominated by Bilderberg members, would be a permanent part of the Bilderberg agenda.

6. The Industrial Aspects Of Atomic Energy

7. Economic Problems

East-West Trade

The Political Aspects Of Convertability

Expansion Of International Trade
