Now in its 18th year, the prestigious conference is an annual gathering for some 400 global CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, up-and-comers, capitalists, and thought leaders to discuss and debate key issues of global concern, and to build new partnerships.
Under the theme of “The World Reboots”, this year’s conference will focus on how CEOs, companies and countries are confronting challenges and seizing opportunities arising from accelerating disruption. Some liken this era to the fourth global revolution, after mechanization, mass production and digitalization. The world in 4.0 mode will affect how companies are built and led, where money is made or lost, the role of governments, and how all of us live, work and play.
Some 50 speakers will gather from around the world to generate insights on topics such as the world economy, technology, innovation, and investment opportunities in sectors such as finance and real estate. Panels will also discuss best strategies for leadership, entrepreneurship, family business, leadership, philanthropy and sustainable development.
William Adamopoulos, CEO/Asia, Forbes Media said: “We are delighted to bring the Forbes Global CEO Conference to Thailand for the first time. Bangkok, the hub of Thailand’s economic activity and innovation, is the ideal location to host this year’s conference where our conference attendees will discuss the opportunities and challenges arising from accelerating disruption as the world reboots.”
