Each year, The Deal and its senior editors host an exclusive, by-invitation-only gathering of the most influential members of the deal community for a series of discussions forecasting the outlook for dealmaking in the coming year. The live stream of these discussions will be open to the public for free. Follow @TheDealNewsroom for updates on the event and use hashtag #dealeconomy to join the conversation.

During the conference, winners of the Most Admired Corporate Dealmakers Awards will be recognized and honored as the best corporate dealmaking teams at acquisitive, large-cap U.S. companies in ten industry categories. Winners are selected by our readership based on overall strategy, demonstrated skill of the deal team, proficiency at identifying value, execution and diversification over a twelve month period.

This discussion will focus on developments and dynamics beyond our borders

and beyond our control. What are the challenges posed by, for example, a newly

revanchist Russia? The increasingly unpredictable effects of climate change?
