About The World 100 Events

World 100 events and training offer invaluable networking opportunities in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. They help create and strengthen personal networks for career development, benchmarking and knowledge transfer. We have had many memorable gatherings, from a floating banquet hosted by the University of Hong Kong, to Karaoke in Japan.

Every event, from our first conference at the University of Hong Kong in 2010 to our most recent conference at the University of Manchester, enables members to exchange innovative perspectives on reputation, international relations, and global brand building.
