Every year, our Executive and News Xchange teams meet in Geneva to do a creative brainstorming session and plan the year's conversation. The decisions are driven by what's happening in the industry and what's happening in the world, plus what you -- our community -- tell us is keeping you awake at night or making you buzz with excitement.
This year, the theme came very easily. The word we kept using, without realizing we were coming up with a theme, was Reality. And almost always someone would say something like, Well, that's the NEW reality.
That is the world we're in now. It's amazing. It's the new reality.
And so a theme was born!
