The World in 2019 Gala Dinner – organized by The Economist Events

Hall 3, NDK, Sofia - 21st January 2019.

Every year The World in edition - an Economist publication dedicated to predictions of global trends — brings its reasoning and thought process to life at a GALA DINNER, hosted at different locations around the world. This year the series of events will start in Singapore (27 Nov 2018) and Hong Kong (29 Nov 2018), and then it comes to Sofia (21 Jan 2019) and Athens (25 Jan 2019).

For a second year in a row Hall 3 at NDK, Sofia will host the award-winning The World in Gala Dinner where The Economist and invited luminaries share their bold, candid, sometimes shocking – and always entertaining – predictions for the year ahead. The evening starts with two business panels devoted to expected developments in the areas of energy, IT and innovations. Over dinner inspiring and thought-provoking predictions for the year are shared by the Economist chairperson. Delegates listen to influential, high profile leaders and the audience wholeheartedly takes part in a predictions-inspired table quiz. With surprise gifts for the winning table, of course.

Be inspired by leading thinkers as they take a provocative and enlightening look at the year ahead in an evening of intelligent entertainment with The Economist, covering everything from business to science, politics and culture.
