Chicago has always been a crossroads—a place where cultures met and traded and prospered. In commerce, transportation, communication, architecture, and art, Chicago has been, and continues to be, a city of invention and ingenuity. And because it is a crossroads for ideas and inspiration, it was a fortuitous location for IWF to explore the changes underway, the convergences ahead, and the choices global leaders will face.
