The most influential summit in the Middle East is back this November, bringing together futurists and leaders from across the region and world to discuss the critical issues of our times, and big ideas that will reshape our future.
The inaugural edition of Fast Company Middle East’s World Changing Ideas Summit in 2022 was a huge success, not just in how many people attended it, but, more importantly, what the forum meant as an intellectual exchange of diverse, groundbreaking ideas worthy of broader adoption.
The 2023 edition will build on this success as an impactful summit to foster transformative ideas with an exceptional league of visionaries, from industry titans and government dignitaries to venture capitalists, thought leaders, and social entrepreneurs.
Some of the eminent speakers at the last summit included HE Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Trade; Aamer Sheikh, CEO at PepsiCo Middle East Business Unit; Brandon Rowberry, CEO – Digital Health, Aster DM Healthcare; Ray O. Johnson is the Chief Executive Officer of the Technology Innovation Institute; Christine Gould, Founder & CEO at Thought For Food, and KD Adamson, leading futurist and ecocentrist, among many others.
This year, the panel discussions will focus on the region’s pressing issues. The Middle East’s role in economic and environmental sustainability will be paramount. But other issues will be just as important — if not more so — such as whether AI singularity is a real and imminent threat, the future of hydrogen solutions, economic diversification, and much more.
“Like the previous edition, the focus of the World Changing Ideas summit is to drive meaningful change. It aligns with our commitment to promote big ideas which have the potential to reshape our world,” said Ravi Raman, Publisher of Fast Company Middle East.
The summit will take place on November 2, 2023, at the iconic Museum of the Future, Dubai. It will be attended by over 250 leaders from the world of business, politics, art, and science.
