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.
