About the event

The World in 2012 Festival is a two-day event that builds on a more than quarter-century of publishing success with The Economist’s annual publication, The World in - a collection of trends and predictions that will shape the year ahead. The World in 2012 Festival brings the publication to life with a forward-thinking programme that balances sophisticated discussion with a provocative cultural experience unlike anything else. Luminaries from business, politics, science, universities, and the arts come together in a live arena to make their predictions and voice their ideas for 2012 and beyond.

Taking place in downtown Manhattan, The World in 2012 Festival will begin on Thursday, December 1st, for “an evening of global politics”, featuring some of today’s leading politics experts discussing three of the world’s most closely-watched 2012 presidential elections—the US, France and Mexico. The following Saturday, the festival continues with six diverse panel sessions, where experts will make predictions and engage in lively discussions on topics ranging from China’s power transition to global debt to the wild world of sport. The World in 2012 Festival is truly a must-attend experience for the culturally and intellectually engaged to hear what today’s top minds think about tomorrow.
