The TIME 100 is far more than an annual list of the world’s most influential people. It is, across its more than 1,000 alumni, one of the world’s greatest leadership communities—a unique mix spanning government, business, entertainment, health, sports and science. The TIME 100 Summit spotlighted the outstanding progress these individuals are making and encouraged cross-disciplinary collaboration toward a better world.


Summit attendees were a diverse group of influential people, including TIME 100 honorees, CEOs, major philanthropists and civic leaders, as well as next-generation leaders selected by TIME. The Summit also reached an extended audience through TIME’s global audience of 100 million, as well as via other media outlets and platforms.
