Global Conference 2011

The Milken Institute Global Conference brings together some of the most extraordinary people in the world - from entrepreneurs and executives to philanthropists, scientists and Nobel laureates. Together they explore solutions to today's most pressing social, political and economic challenges.

The 2011 Global Conference took place May 1-4 at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

The Global Conference has become an important venue for thought leaders in a wide range of disciplines to present their views before an informed, influential audience and the news media. It's also an invaluable setting for attendees to meet informally and build new relationships.

Among the participants are hundreds of CEOs from the world's top-tier companies, senior foreign and U.S. government officials, leading figures in the global capital markets, forward-thinking academic experts, top journalists, and leaders in education, health care and philanthropy.

Their discussions delve into the issues deeply enough to produce meaningful insights. Participants don't just debate the issues - they help move policy toward realistic solutions. Whether the challenge is market stability, energy security or health care, the Global Conference is a forward-thinking event, designed to celebrate innovation and broaden opportunity.
