What Davos has become to productivity and competition, Banff will become for innovation and collaboration.
The world is experiencing unprecedented change in applications of knowledge in every dimension of development, growth, revitalization and organization. The demands and opportunities of an interdependent global economy have implications for private and public decision making by enterprises and communities, whether local, national, regional or global. Most nations have launched major initiatives to harness their inherent capability within a transnational context. All has been done in the name of international competitiveness. Economies have been transformed, communities revitalized, emerging territories supported and industrialized nations repositioned. We have much to learn from one another.
The GKII is designed to bring together leading thinkers and practitioners from around the world, from different industry sectors and types of enterprise, from governments and public policy agencies, and from professional organizations.
Only with this level of cross-fertilization will it be possible to build a truly global knowledge innovation infrastructure from which all sectors, functions and regions of the world can benefit.
