Each year, business leaders from around the world gather for YPO EDGE, YPO’s landmark event. For 2 days, members, their spouses, partners and invited guests from more than 130 countries convene with world-renowned thought leaders to address key issues in business, politics, philanthropy and humanities. The event, hosted on a different continent every year, offers exceptional educational opportunities for attendees while helping the global leaders of today shape the world of tomorrow.

Vision to Reality

Dubai is a stirring alchemy of profound tradition and futuristic vision. Its rise from humble beginnings to the home of the world’s tallest building has captured global attention not only for its gutsy ambition but its ability to realize projects that elsewhere, would never get off the drawing board. In March 2016, YPO and WPO members will realize their own potential as leaders during our flagship event, the YPO EDGE. Welcomed with warm Arabian hospitality, more than 2,500 members, spouses and partners will converge on this dynamic metropolis for two days of powerful idea exchange, inspiration and discovery that will go beyond the mirage and uncover the real pulse of Dubai and this dynamic region.

“YPO EDGE (formerly Global EDGE) was a phenomenal experience that challenged my thinking about both business and life. One of my key takeaways resulted in direct changes to our company’s strategy and a significant increase in performance in the following months. As a young YPOer, direct business value is a key driver of my YPO experience.”
