Brand Finance Global 500 2021 Launch: The Role of Tech Brands in Driving Economic Growth
Economic growth and technological innovation are historically perceived as concurrent. As we progress through the 21st century, the world is innovating at an increasingly rapid rate, and whereas previous predictions of technological development would be forecast over a 25 to 50-year period, this timespan has now become much shorter.

Nevertheless, 2020 saw the world experience unprecedented economic upheaval, as the health of populations and national economies took substantial blows. The primary focus of the foreseeable future will be to revive the global economy from the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join our webinar alongside a panel of C-suite executives as we discuss how important a role technology brands will play in the economic recovery after a year of turbulence, and how we predict where technological innovations will take brands in the next 5, 10, and 25 years.

Taking place at the time of our usual Davos event, the webinar will launch the Brand Finance Global 500 2021 report and present the findings of our annual study into the world's 500 most valuable and strongest brands across all sectors and countries, as well as the Brand Finance Brand Guardianship Index 2021 ranking of the world's top 100 CEOs.            

Follow us on social media @BrandFinance for regular updates and join in the conversation using #BFGlobal500.
