The New York Forum (, to be held on June 22 and 23 in New York City, says that the global business gathering will be the first of its kind to go completely paperless. All participants will receive an iPad featuring the program, background information, schedule, and any other relevant materials.

The New York Forum is a global business leader meeting aimed at addressing the future of the global economy, including focusing on strategies to spur job creation and develop new business models. The first annual forum will purportedly bring together hundreds of international business leaders, entrepreneurs, sovereign fund managers, regulatory officials and academics for a series of results-oriented discussions, debates and dialogues, with a mission “that is both bold and urgent: to reinvent business models, to stimulate job creation and restore faith in the international economy.”
