The Museum of the Future will host the inaugural TIME100 Gala and Impact Awards on March 28, which are sponsored by the World Government Summit.
The event that recognizes extraordinary individuals who are using their influence to build a better future, will be the first major event at Dubai’s Museum of the Future since its opening ceremony on February 22, 2022 and will be attended by regional leaders, influencers, and visionaries alongside members of the global TIME100 community.
The World Government Summit and FTX, Exclusive Crypto Partner for the event, are premier sponsors of the TIME100 Gala and Impact Awards.
H.E. Mohammad Al Gergawi, Chairman of the Museum of the Future and Chairman of the World Government Summit Organisation (WGS), said: “Through our partnership with TIME to host the TIME100 Gala and Impact Awards in Dubai, the Museum of the Future further cements its position as a global platform to shape a better future. The most important aspect about the future is enabling people and celebrating talent to work tirelessly in creating a positive impact for future generations, which is why we are pleased to collaborate with TIME on this endeavor”.
The event comes on the heels of TIME’s highly successful return to in-person programming last year, which included events marking the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow and TIME Person of the Year reveal in New York.
“The TIME100 is a community of hundreds of leaders from across the years and around the world,” said Dan Macsai, Editorial Director of the TIME100. “We’re so excited to grow that community even further in Dubai, and to spotlight the ways they are shaping our future.”
The TIME100 Gala and Impact Awards is the latest expansion of the TIME100 franchise, following the launch of TIME100 Most Influential Companies in 2021, TIME100 Talks in 2020 and TIME100 Next in 2019.
