Many people hearing before the event of the Global Competiveness Forum , have asked for my reaction . I thought it would be useful to set down some Comments:
Although I have given over 700 lectures in all 50 states, 9 Canadian Provinces (No. 10, Newfoundland coming up on May 13) and 16 other countries, (Saudi Arabia was number 17), this was one that ranks very high. I have had much larger audiences (about 2000 several times vs under 1000 in Riyadh, though from about 30 countries), but hardly any so well arranged and with such an incredible group of attendees. There were a huge number of top executives from companies such as IBM, Volkswagen, Google, etc kind of a top line of movers and shakers. There were a number of well known politicians including Tony Blair, former PM of the UK, Jean Chretien , Former Prime Minister of Canada, and William J. Clinton former President of the USA. He gave an outstanding presentation including some recent scientific developments such as the earth-like planet discovered recently around a not too distant star.

I've seen some strange flow/idea charts from that fair and now this. I couldn't find any information on their site or regular news that covered this.
Do you have any credible links ? (I'm genuinely interested)

Stanton T Friedman: .......I had a similar thought about the Pope’s comments about the same God who made us could have made our brethren in outer space.. getting Catholics ready for the big disclosure? . .
I've recently returned from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where I attended and spoke at the 2011 Global Competitiveness Forum. This event - and my presence at it - has generated some rumours in the UFO community and the conspiracy theory community, so I thought I would issue this brief statement on the subject, to explain the situations and, hopefully, to dispel a few misperceptions.
This event is similar to the World Economic Forum in Davos and takes place immediately beforehand, so that attendees can go straight from Riyadh to Davos. This event is organised by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority and takes places under the patronage of HM King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz. It was attended by Saudi Royals and government ministers, along with Board and CEO-level attendees from top companies including Google, Walt Disney, Reuters, Boeing, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, IBM, Ernst & Young and Rio Tinto. Other speakers at the conference included Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.
