Bringing together over 2,500 leaders from business, government, international organizations, civil society, academia, media and the arts, the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) is the flagship of Davos as a meeting place. The Annual Meeting of the WEF shows the “Spirit of Davos” to the whole world: debating approaches to solutions, networking in a village atmosphere but a city infrastructure, in imposing mountainous surroundings.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a not-for-profit foundation, known for its Annual Meeting which takes place in the modern Davos Congress Centre.
