The 1972 Bilderberg Meeting was the 21st such meeting and had participants from 14 European countries, the United States, Canada and "various international organisations".[1] It was chaired by Prince Bernhard and took place at the hotel La Reserve, Knokke, Belgium. As in the case of the 1971 Bilderberg, John Pesmazoglou of Greece was invited but could not attend since the Greek authorities denied him a passport. The 103 guests included 16 business executives, 28 politicians, 11 financiers, 10 editors/journalists and 6 academics.


The 1972 Bilderberg Agenda was "the state of the Western community in the light of changing relationships among the non-Communist industrialized countries, and the impact of changing power relationships in the Far East on Western security" according to the conference report which was leaked and is now available online.[1]
