Davos 2018: Your front-row seat to the “summit of summits”

The World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting brings together a who’s-who of leaders from business, government and beyond. Here’s how to get exclusive access to the January 23-26 “summit of summits.”

High in the Alps of Switzerland, luminaries from business, politics and academia will convene January 23-26 for the 48th annual World Economic Forum. What was once a small gathering founded by professor Klaus Schwab nearly 50 years ago has become one of the most noteworthy events in the political and business calendar, summoning an elite guest list of CEOs, heads of state, intellectuals, and even royalty from all over the globe.

This year, the 3,000 attendees will convene under the theme “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World”. Thomson Reuters is once again proud to be a strategic partner of the WEF. In the spirit of uniting the world’s engines of change and propelling them forward with the knowledge, intelligence and human expertise they need, we’re committed to providing timely, valuable content on the proceedings at Davos.
