Global Spectrum Series: Reflecting on 2022 and looking ahead to 2023

15 December 2022

As the end of 2022 approaches, the Forum Global team have been reflecting on a year that benefited from a return to hybrid and in-person events post-pandemic.

The Global Spectrum Series hosted 6 conferences in 2022, welcoming over 3,100 delegates from 143 different countries. Over 200 industry speakers and policymakers joined the conferences in person and virtually to discuss emergent themes for each region and beyond. During the year, Forum Global worked with over 60 partners to deliver events with impact – we’d like to thank all of them for their support.

Global Spectrum Series events have included:
