This year marks the 18th Anniversary of the World Knowledge Forum.

With the gracious support and enthusiasm from many knowledge seekers around the world, the World Knowledge Forum has become one of the most prominent knowledge hubs in the world.

The World Knowledge Forum has been developing its contents each year and rewriting the history of the forum industry for over a decade. In order to meet the encouragement and expectations of many who wait for the World Knowledge Forum every October, we have set the stage again for the best speakers and themes to look ahead of time this year. The World Knowledge Forum, which expanded last year by being held in two different locations, the Hotel Shilla and Jangchung Arena will once again provide a platform to experience a whole new level of knowledge sharing.

The global village is now standing at the most crucial inflection point of the human history. Artificial Intelligence and the Fourth Industrial Revolution will bring structural changes in all aspects of humanity in politics, economy, and society. The speed of such changes will be faster than what humanity could ever imagine and our future will change hugely depending on which way we choose to take at this inflection point. Creative knowledge is a crucial element that has become ever more essential especially in this era, where the social structure is fundamentally changing and the technology is rapidly developing with the arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The 18th World Knowledge Forum under the main theme 'Inflection Point: Towards New Prosperity' will be held from October 17th through 19th, and esteemed power elites and global scholars will provide knowledge and insights which will guide the pathway towards new prosperity beyond the inflection point.

We sincerely promise to present quality discussions at this year's forum.
