Not a lot of people know this, but one of the most kept secrets of the elite is the network of people that they have. There is a reason why the children of rich people continue being rich, apart from the habits it all boils down to who you know. If you know just 1 millionaire in your community and you happen to have a good relationship with them, you can learn a thing or two that can change your life perspective. What more if you will be given the chance to listen and hang out with 4 or 7 billionaires in the room? There is truth to the saying that you are the 5 people you are with all the time. However, not everyone has the opportunity to make friends with Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, or top celebrities like Reese Witherspoon despite being worth billions- but you most definitely can attend an event that would allow you to shake hands with them, and hear them talk about exclusive topics that are not found anywhere in the internet or any book you can think of. Exclusive and premium events helps you open so many doors, just one event can help you gain the golden opportunity you have been waiting for!
Here is the 6 Most Expensive World Events, Meet-ups and Conference in the world right now.
1. The World Economic Forum
( Davos, Switzerland)
Care to hear Cate Blanchett or Leonardo Di Caprio discuss the most pressing issue in the world right now? Do you want to know how your business can help improve a current sustainable project happening in several parts of the world? Do you want to meet the Global Future Councils in different parts of the world, then you should find a way to attend The World Economic Forum. This January 2020 the conference in Switzerland will cost delegates $70K – $210K to attend. An annual meeting of members take place in countries like United Arab Emirates.

3. Moola Forum: International
Moola Forum is one of the most opulent conferences in Asia and holds the key to meeting the most elusive and exclusive members of the Asian Elite. From Chinese Business Empires and Indian business Empires, including the Filipino Business Elites- usually the most secretive and unheard of families who rule Asia.
Moola Forum has been working with luxury lifestyle consultants, private wealth advisers, and luxury affiliate marketers throughout Asia since 2013. And over the years, it has built professional and personal relationship with high-net-worth individuals in Asia, executives of top corporations, members of Asian royal families, and super many old-money families with utmost exclusivity and privacy.
Etiquette and Protocol in Asia vary from culture to culture and country to country. Moola Forum ensures that etiquette and protocol are strictly observed in the venue and throughout the event, as these are required by guests from the upper echelons of society and government, including members of Asian royal families and top government officials, their delegates and their families, dignitaries and their families, socialites, and members of high society.
Moola Forum caters to the members of royal families: from Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Bhutan, Brunei Darussalam, Kingdom of Cambodia, State of Japan, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, State of Kuwait, Malaysia, Sultanate of Oman, State of Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Thailand, and United Arab Emirates.
Moola Forum usually announces luxury events through its authorized members who—by heart—live the ethics and procedures in this exclusive organization. Moola Forum may invite a person, but could cancel such an invitation due to conflicts of interest or other reasons. Thus, you can’t simply attend the Meetup or the Conference because you like it even if you have all the means to pay for the tickets.

Exclusive and Premium events like Tech conferences are expensive, but they are worth it – If you attend the right event for you. As you know, there are thousands of tech and innovation events taking place every year. In my opinion, selecting right the ones you’d like to attend is a strategic decision that will allow you to see it as an investment, rather than an expense.
The basic role of a conference is to filter out the people who are likely to waste your time, and filter in the people you want to talk to.
By attending worthwhile conferences you find influential contacts, people with unique and advanced experience who could share vital information with you. Most high end and premium conferences and events also provide high quality and digested information- so you can understand it faster. There is concrete information, plus its always feels great to be talking with the best minds in the land. Also the informal conversations happen during the networking breaks and are conducted in the two-way fashion. People freely exchange ideas, network, share observation and knowledge. Many delegates find the networking part more valuable than presentations.
Moola forum meets ups for example in Asia, allow attendees interaction for exchange of ideas. Since the crowd has already been pre-screened you can avoid meeting scammers.
A lot of premium forums also offer rejuvenation, after returning from the conference you feel productive and full of new ideas. There is no better venue for meeting vendors, investors, competitors, suppliers and more. A lot of businesses find founders and attendees that make deals with them during these expensive forums. Meet-up forums and conferences is also about brand presence, if you are not there then you simply don’t exist. Attending the right conference will help you weed out the wrong people, it saves you time, which is the most important of it all.
