Emanuel joined Motorola CEO Greg Brown, Mayor of Philadelphia Michael Nutter and Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoe on the first panel entitled "Transforming Government to Promote Innovation."

Panelists discussed how these new partner collaborations offer creative solutions and untapped opportunities to address barriers to urban growth and vitality—including financial challenges and other contemporary pressures of unprecedented magnitudes.

The second panel, "Generating New Value from Local Assets," brought together Katherine Sierra, VP for sustainable development at The World Bank, Mayor of Johannesburg Amos Masondo, Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.

The last panel, "Rebooting the Economy with a Premium on Talent" included Mayor Daley, Mayor of Amman Municipality Omar Maani, Mayor of Penalolen Claudio Orrego Larrain and Anne El
