Why The World In 2018 Gala?

If you’re the type who believes work and pleasure are one and the same and you fancy yourself as an economics clairvoyant, it’s time to join your high-brow brothers and sisters at The World in 2018 Gala, where you’ll be frowned at if you don’t talk about the office at the dinner table.  

After some refined 'networking cocktails’ it’s down to business, kind of. You and your clients will rub shoulders and predictions with fellow readers of The Economist, world business leaders, senior government representatives and pioneering academics. As for parlour games, how about a stimulating and insightful 2018 Prediction Quiz. Opinions at the ready, contestants...

Never mind Colonel Mustard in the library with a candlestick, this is Kevin Kallaugher, editorial cartoonist at The Economist, in the dining room waving his magic pencil!

Bold Social And Economic Predictions Meet Fine Dining.

There are two events to choose from; the first is held at the Travel Inn-- only joking! The first is at the end of November in the Four Seasons, Singapore and the second takes place at the Marriott in Hong Kong. 

The award-winning gathering will see invitees being candid and, a few cocktails later, visionary predictions for the year ahead. The main agenda will be 2018 In Tech and 2018 For Women but the crescendo as always is Daniel's Dozen, where the executive editor of The Economist, Daniel Franklin plays God in his modestly titled Review of The World. 

In Short:

  • A 2018 business think-tank with fine-dining in Singapore and Hong Kong.
  • Gain insights from globally recognised figureheads who not only predict the world, they run it! 
  • Click through for programme and booking details, the event is always a sell-out.
