The Global Forum
This June, at a time when the eyes of the globe will be on South Africa for its historic moment in the world of sports, the Global Forum, hosted by Fortune, TIME, and CNN, will gather global leaders in Cape Town to focus on substantive issues and opportunities in the developing world. Since 1995, the Global Forum has convened the heads of global business—the chairmen, presidents, and CEOs of the world’s largest companies—on the dynamic frontiers of international commerce. For Cape Town, we will enhance the experience by including TIME 100 honorees: the world’s most influential people from the highest ranks of government, science and technology, business, sports, media, entertainment, and nongovernment organizations. Their participation will yield rich insights into the broader, interdisciplinary context in which today’s global companies are operating.
