AGENDA

The Next Century

The best way to know the future is to create it. For 100 years, Forbes has celebrated entrepreneurs who took risks and succeeded. As Forbes enters its second century, political earthquakes and rapidly accelerating technology may compress the next century of change into two decades or less. This conference will look forward to what lies ahead. The event will gather some of the world's top visionaries, CEOs, tycoons and investors to discuss and evaluate how far the global community has come, what needs to be done, and where it is going next. What will the world look like in the next 20, 50 or 100 years? In this historic conference, some of the world's best and brightest will unveil the future they wish to create.
