The third edition of the forum will hold in New York City on September 25, 2019, during the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The annual Bloomberg Global Business Forum (GBF) is a gathering of global business leaders and supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies. According to a release, this year the day-long forum will focus on aligning governments and businesses on combating the greatest current threats to global prosperity – the rise of economic and environmental instability. 

"Meeting big challenges requires governments and businesses to work together, especially at a time when tensions and temperatures are both rising around the world," said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies, mayor of New York City 2002-2013, UN Special Envoy for Climate Action, and WHO Global Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases. 

"The Global Business Forum is a unique opportunity for some of the world's most influential people to build new partnerships, share ideas, and counter the forces that threaten peace and prosperity, with a special focus on climate change."
