Annual Summit Program Unveiled in London
Speakers, distinguished guests, and GCF members come together in London to get a sneak peak of the 5th Annual Summit: New Frontiers.
LONDON, 18 July 2019 – On a sultry summer evening in London, more than 60 business leaders, philanthropists, and media influencers from creative industries gathered at the beautiful Maison Assouline in Piccadilly to hear about the ambitious plans to unfold at the Global Citizen Forum over the next 12 months.
“I am delighted to be moderating at the Forum,” said Richard Quest, one of CNN’s leading anchors. “The issues of mobility and migration are as relevant today as they have ever been. [Immigrants] bring energy and expertise to the countries they travel to. My own family were from a Shtetl in Latvia. Without their efforts to move to Britain, I would probably not be speaking to you tonight.”
The Global Citizen Forum unveiled the benefits of their new membership-based community; from invites to events, experiences, and gatherings around the world, to gaining access to a global network of leaders and partners. The London event also started the clock to the countdown of this year’s Annual Summit, which will be hosted in Yerevan, Armenia on October 10-12, 2019.
“This year’s theme ‘New Frontiers’ will cover the ways in which technology, innovation, and human passion, are redefining the agenda around global citizenship,” said Talimka Yordanova, Chief Executive Officer of the Global Citizen Forum. “We have an incredible list of speakers anchoring our agenda this year, including Tony and Cherie Blair, Nouriel Roubini, Val Kilmer, Nicole Scherzinger, Eve and many others. Also, we are proud to be partnering with SAP, YPO, GBBC, and ACTAI, and Euronews and Twitter join us as our media partners.”
Members of the Global Citizen Forum are granted the opportunity to participate in vital dialogue on global issues at specially curated panels and events around the world, which include access to regional GCF gatherings during the UNGA in New York City, WEF in Davos, Expo 2020 in Dubai, as well as access to partnering networks such as Concordia Summit, Global Blockchain Business Council and many others.
“We are delighted to be taking the forum to Armenia, the country of my forebears,” said Armand Arton, Founder of the Global Citizen Forum.
From heads of state, government officials, members of royal families, to ambassadors and diplomats, business leaders and bankers, as well as artists, designers, athletes and celebrities, more than 300 attendees are expected to attend the Annual Summit in Yerevan.
