The World Economic Forum (WEF) is the International Organisation for Public-Private Co-operation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting (or Davos, as it is more widely known and referred to in the media) is one of the most important annual global events of the calendar year.
Davos is attended by 3,000 global experts, like Luigi Matrone, looking to tackle the most important issues shaping the future of business and society.
This year is, in fact, the 50th anniversary of the event, and its central theme is ‘Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World.’
In addition to Donald Trump and Angela Merkel, attendees include:
- Newly-appointed head of the European Central Bank (and first female president of the ECB), Christine Lagarde
- Climate change activist, Greta Thunberg
- Huawei founder, Ren Zhengfei (with 5G set to be a hot topic of debate)
- Billionaire investor, George Soros
The programme for Davos 2020 has been split into key themes, including ‘Better Business’.
This subject area will be of particular interest to eBusiness Institute audiences, and is one that Luigi regularly approaches in his thought leadership output, whether speaking at international events or in his writing.
Sessions that our readers may be especially interested are:
- Shaping the future of the digital economy
- Shaping the future of consumption
eBusiness Institute has covered these topics in recent times, including as part of Luigi’s keynote speech at Alcon Gaze 2019 and in Subscription Economy: Between fears and desires, to name just a couple of stand-out examples.
Keep up-to-date with Luigi’s and eBusiness Institute’s thoughts on the fascinating and incredibly important discussions that arise from Davos 2020 by following eBusiness Institute on LinkedIn. We will also be following up with a round-up of Davos 2020 after the event.
