May 29, 1954 – The Bilderberg Group meets for the first time at the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, Netherlands. This private group of academics, businessmen, cultural leaders, industrialists, bankers, and politicians believed that the Cold War could become less dangerous if more one-on-one, personal relationships were built between leaders of the West and Soviet Union. The Bilderberg Group became the target of a wide range of conspiracy theories, particularly those which alleged the Bilderberg Group wanted to take over the world...

It gets mentioned in the animated show The Venture Bros. The reference is so obscure, however, that the closed-caption people called it the "Build A Bear Group". LOL!!!!

Billy Quizboy: I don't think he's your guy...
Col. Hunter Gathers: Of course he is! All the intel points to it, damnit!
Billy Quizboy: Again with the intel! You saw what he said: He's not in the Guild of Calamitous Intent. It's like a businessman's club or something.
Col. Hunter Gathers: That's what they said about the Bilderberg Group, son. And then WHAMMO!!! Berlin Wall comes tumbling down!
Billy Quizboy: No it hasn't.
Col. Hunter Grathers: Oh, it will, kiddo. It was decided at the last meeting.
