The Bloomberg Global Business Forum takes place at the crossroads of international business and world leadership, bringing private and public sectors together to discuss future solutions to creating sustainable economic growth and sustainable business models.
As economic uncertainty, climate change and growing urban density challenge cities across the globe, architecture allows us to explore how design and strong partnerships across sectors can transform challenges into solutions.
A total of five Danes were invited to the Bloomberg Global Business Forum, including Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager.
Our representation at this global summit, and unique role as the only firm based in creative design, allowed us to build relationships and explore opportunities to extend our Scandinavian-rooted principles of sustainable, democratic design across business sectors and international borders.
The event featured a keynote address by British Prime Minister Theresa May, and was the largest gathering of global heads of state outside of a formal government summit in 2018.
Running adjacent to the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the summit merged political and economic influence, representing world leaders from six continents and CEOs from companies such as Ford Motors, Unilever and JP Morgan Chase.
We are proud that Henning Larsen and CEO Mette Kynne Frandsen was able to represent the artistic creative business and play a role in important discussions.
