FORBES GLOBAL CEO CONFERENCE

Now in its 20th year, the prestigious Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in the fourth quarter of 2021.

This Conference is attended by CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders to discuss and debate key issues of global concern and to build new partnerships.

AGENDA


The world is looking for a way back to normal. Yet the recovery from the pandemic is uneven, with some countries bouncing back and others facing new outbreaks. Markets gyrate on every economic and Covid update. Investors dive into SPACs and digital currencies, while keeping a wary eye on inflation and possible rate hikes. Asia is increasingly caught in the middle of growing transpacific economic and trade tensions. Amid all these uncertainties, leading CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors will convene at the 20th Forbes Global CEO Conference, to share insights on how best to navigate the pandemic, spotlight the opportunities and stake out the way forward.
