Dear Fellow Wharton Alumni

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us in Hong Kong on May 25-26, 2007 for the Wharton Global Alumni Forum.  This is an exciting time for Hong Kong and for all of China, and we can assure you that we are planning a memorable event that will both entertain and educate you.

The theme for this Forum is “Up and Down the Capitalist Road”.  We will provide you with a range of Keynote Speakers and Panel Discussions that will help us all better to understand this bumpy path that over the long run always seems to take an upward progression.

The Organizing Committee in Hong Kong is hard at work inviting interesting speakers from around the world.  Already, speakers as diverse as Donald Tsang, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong; and Charles W. Goodyear, IV, WG’83, Chairman of BHP Billiton, have accepted our invitation to address the Forum.

Dean Patrick T. Harker will lead the delegation from Philadelphia that will include a group of Wharton’s finest professors.  Building on a recent innovation in the Forums, we plan to offer several “Master Classes” that will allow a select group of alumni to go back-to-school on the second afternoon of the Forum.

We will be headquartered at the brand-new Four Seasons Hotel, the latest addition to the outstanding hotels that make Hong Kong a travelers’ paradise.

This website will change often between now and the opening of the Forum.  We hope that you will join us in registering immediately and then return to the website frequently to learn about additions to the schedule.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong and to the Wharton Global Alumni Forum.  The Forums have developed a reputation around the globe for providing both interesting opportunities to learn and valuable opportunities to build personal and professional networks.  Hong Kong will be no exception on May 25-26, 2007.
