FORBES GLOBAL CEO CONFERENCE

Now in its 18th year, the prestigious Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from October 30 to 31, 2018.

This annual event is attended by 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.


AGENDA

The world is in an unprecedented reboot. CEOs, companies and countries must all face the challenges—and opportunities—coming 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. The change will not be neutral, and will require new leadership skills and new entrepreneurs to navigate the untold creative destruction of the next few years. Yet those who can grasp the opportunities can reap huge benefits for themselves, their companies, and society.
