The World Economic Forum at Davos by Private Jet
The 48th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting will see world leaders, entrepreneurs, media and arts industry innovators, academics, investors, and business executives descend upon Davos, Switzerland. The three-day event, more commonly known as “Davos,” will take place between January 23rd-26th, and is thought to be the most coveted business bash in the world.
Founded in 1971, the World Economic Forum is an assembly of 2,500 of the world’s most rich and powerful from over 100 countries who share one core objective: to pledge renewed commitment to international collaboration as a means to solving critical global challenges. This ambitious goal can only be achieved through multinational co-design, co-creation and cooperation. Davos’ annual itinerary is comprised of 400 sessions, and this years theme is “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World.”*
Davos 2018 will be opened and headlined by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will be joined by 340 global political powerhouses including a record number of G7 economic leaders such as British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, and United States President Donald Trump who will deliver a keynote address before the close of Davos. A role that has already sparked protests of outrage in Switzerland. Also in attendance will be Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, President of International Committee of the Red Cross, Peter Maurer and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
Following each day of intense and proactive talks are extravagant and illustrious corporate parties Davos has gained a reputation for hosting luxurious parties where only the finest Champagne is sipped, and Michelin-star prepared canapés are nibbled on. Many of these functions can cost in excess of seven figures. Not to mention world class performances from musical legends each year, 2018’s guest being none other than grammy-award winner Elton John.
