The annual Global Grad Show conference promotes forward-thinking discussions focused on innovation, global development issues, knowledge exchange and equality. Creating a unique exchange opportunity between professors, graduates, professionals and stakeholders from the global innovation community, each edition is dedicated to a different aspect of technology, education and creative talent's role in creating solutions for a better future.
Taking place alongside the yearly showcase of projects in Dubai, the conferences are open to public and leverage Global Grad Show's diverse community to raise awareness and create knowledge that is valuable to innovators, academics, public and private organisations around the world.

With a focus on the complex and challenging subject of Artificial Intelligence, the 2018 conference brought together leading international designers, engineers, scientists and philosophers in a dialogue on how AI is interpreted across the world and where it can take us in the future.
Leading academics, philanthropists and government stakeholders took part in a series of sessions, addressing how to integrate the global development agenda into the curriculum of creative and scientific degrees and how to foster research towards social good.
To amplify the reach of the knowledge and experiences exchanged at the conference in Dubai, Global Grad Show commissioned a research organisation focused on how technology and science address global challenges to produce a white paper, drawing from the key discussions and questions raised at the conference and contextualise the conversations into the broader panorama of the global development agenda.
