Milken Institute Asia Summit 2019 Features The Region's Prominent Leaders
Every year, top leaders from business, government, media, academia and philanthropy come together for the Milken Institute Asia Summit in Singapore, an invite-only gathering of the region’s most influential names. The central theme of this year's summit is "Asia at a Crossroads" and the multi-day event kicked off with the Food Leaders Retreat in Asia where speakers such as chef Heston Blumenthal discussed global trends in food and sustainable agriculture and was followed by an exclusive cocktail reception.
The founder of the non-partisan, non-profit think tank, Michael Milken, personally welcomed guests at the opening cocktail held at the Fullerton Bay Hotel. The hundred-strong audience comprised of Tatler 300 listers and other high-level executives from myriad industries continued networking throughout the night, discussing the dynamic engagements in the days ahead. The Milken Institute Asia Summit features over 60 sessions with 250 speakers covering topics from the future of fintech in Asia to how gentrification may impact the philanthropy value of art—it is precisely the diversity of the topics, cross-pollination of ideas, as well as the high-calibre attendees that draw loyal guests to this impactful summit year after year.
