The Wharton Global Forum Hong Kong, June 22-24, 2017, will bring together prominent Wharton faculty and alumni as well as the global business community to engage with one another, exchange ideas, and explore the biggest issues affecting the business landscape.

This year marks our 50th Global Forum – the latest in a wonderful and distinguished history of Lifelong Learning events hosted in dynamic global cities of great economic and political importance. Through these forums, Wharton provides its alumni, friends, supporters, and the international business community a chance to learn and interact with some of the most vibrant and creative minds in the world.

Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan city linking west and east, old and new, and our Forum will focus on the great challenges and opportunities of leading disruptive innovation. We will delve into innovation and entrepreneurship; global investment opportunities; big data and analytics; and as always, the rapidly changing geoeconomic and geopolitical landscape.

We look forward to convening the brightest minds to engage with each other during the Hong Kong forum on the most pressing and most important issues facing the business world. The action-oriented insights generated by Wharton’s faculty and the global leadership of the School’s preeminent alumni will have a major impact on government, business, and society in the region and globally.

Junk Outing (Organized by Allen & Overy)

“If you never see their rugged coastlines or deserted coves, and if you are never buffeted by the salty sea wind as it blows full pelt across a surging prow, then you will not know very much of Hong Kong at all.” – TIME magazine


Join us for some sea, fun and sun and a classical Hong Kong experience aboard the Sea-Quester, a “junk” (the term formerly applied to traditional Chinese fishing boats now refers to any motorized pleasure vessel). We will cruise the coastline and anchor on the South Side to cheer on the Dragon Boat racers while enjoying food, drinks and waterskiing behind the speed boat that will accompany us. The whole outing should last 5 hours and we’ll have you back in Central at approximately 3 pm with lunch and drinks provided. The junk is organized by alumnus David Cameron and sponsored by his firm Allen & Overy.

Cost: US$20 per person
Date: Sunday, June 25
Time: 9am to 2:30pm; please arrive at the Conrad Hong Kong lobby no later than 8:45 am

 Pre-registration is required – space is limited.
