In the Face of Disruption

De/Globalization - The Universal Remedy?

On September 5, 2022 from 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. in the Convention Area in Hall 23.

Access at no extra cost with media, exhibitor or trade visitor ticket.

We will bring together proponents and skeptics on the topic of de/globalization, provide scientific and philosophical classification, allow both political decision-makers and futurologists to have their say and, last but not least, outline concrete application scenarios in order to offer the trade audience the greatest possible takeaway effect.

IFA+ Summit - THE NEXT LEVEL OF THINKING

The topic of globalization has always generated pro and con voices.

However, current events - from climate crises to pandemics to the Ukraine war and the associated commodity bottlenecks / supply embargoes - have made the call for deglobalized structures increasingly loud. From an economic point of view, this may even seem to make sense, but the question arises: Can we actually put a stop to the crises affecting society as a whole by turning away from the decades-long globalization roadmap in this way?

What are the opportunities and risks of deglobalization? What are the details of such initiatives and what are the concrete implementation and effects - for companies, social structures and private individuals? Is it a matter of improving the resilience of national economies and companies and of having a greater impact on global, shared sovereignty? In other words: a steady improvement of global structures, instead of complete disengagement?

Under the proven motto "THE NEXT LEVEL OF THINKING", the IFA+ Summit would like to open up a differentiated insight into this topic.

The title of the conference has been deliberately chosen to be open in order to stimulate a discourse.
