Jack Welch. Michael Porter. Madeleine Albright. Rudy Giuliani. Colin Powell. John Chambers. Tony Blair. Names that all of us recognize.
Imagine powerhouse business and global leaders like these – along with many others – all under one roof in a period of two days. Imagine them sharing their insights and taking audience questions on topics like leadership, innovation, the intersection of politics and business, and the challenge of change. Imagine an event that drew 4,500 attendees from 1,400 companies and over 50 countries.
Imagination not required! We were there…and we helped make it happen. Delta Air Lines was once again proud to sponsor the 2008 edition of the World Business Forum, which was held last week in New York City. Seeing the Delta logo flanking the stage as some of the world’s most respected leaders offered their thoughts truly makes it exciting to be a part of this great company.
“What is it, exactly?” you might be asking. The World Business Forum is a leading international symposium for the business community, hosting one of the largest gatherings of senior executives and featuring 19 of the most important leaders from around the world. The event took place on September 23-24 at Radio City Music Hall® in New York City and presented a unique opportunity to experience first-hand the wisdom and unique perspectives of top global leaders and management icons.
Delta has been the proud sponsor of the World Business Forum for over five years. Through this sponsorship, Delta had the opportunity to host up to 50 top Corporate and Leisure accounts for the 2-day session in NYC. As a special treat, Delta enjoyed the privilege of introducing former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on stage to almost 5,000 attendees at Radio City.
I can tell you, it’s not every day that we experience something like this. But, the idea and execution of helping to bring together thousands of business executives fits beautifully with Delta’s desire to be the airline of choice among business travelers. Please keep us in mind the next time your business plans call for air travel to one of our 290+ worldwide destinations.
As always, thanks for your support. We sincerely appreciate your business.
