The World Economic Forum (WEF) is to take place in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos next year on 17-21 January, reverting to an in-person meeting of world and business leaders, organisers said on Thursday.
The meeting will focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ensuring a more inclusive future of work, WEF organisers said in a statement.
The Covid-19 pandemic forced organisers last year to shift the WEF annual meeting to Singapore and then cancel it altogether, raising questions over whether the high-profile event would return to Switzerland at all.
