The Year Ahead

For global CEOs, 2020 will see their investment opportunities defined by the ongoing tectonic shifts in the global economy. With Japan set to be at the center of these developments, Bloomberg’s The Year Ahead will come to Tokyo again this December.

Change is constant

Change is the one constant that unifies global CEOs — and the pace of change only seems to be quickening. Which is why Bloomberg convenes The Year Ahead Summit, an invitation-only event creating a 360-degree view of the most urgent topics facing every executive in the coming year. The issues are myriad, from ongoing geopolitical uncertainty to the next generation of cyber security challenges to the radically changing nature of work in the age of A.I. to the most promising new global investment opportunities. Join Bloomberg this fall to help shape the conversation around the most important trends, issues and challenges every executive will need to consider in 2020 and beyond.
