The World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting 2022 returns to meeting in person in Davos after two years, bringing together global business leaders to discuss the most important issues facing the world. The war in Ukraine, pandemic recovery, battling the climate crisis and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are just some of the key themes that will be discussed across this three day event.
The FT will host a number of satellite events alongside a selection of strategic partners, which will convene high level speakers and provide unique insights into the key topics of the week's agenda. A longstanding partner of the World Economic Forum, the Financial Times provides unrivalled coverage of the event; both in-person with our most senior editors attending as well as across all of our media channels.
The FT’s top journalists will be present at Davos to discuss the key issues facing the global economy with leading policy-makers and CEOs, who will take stock of the far-reaching developments of 2021 and look ahead to a potentially transformative 2022.
