Decades into Congress Business
Davos Congress Centre
Every year, over 3,000 economists, politicians, scientists and business minds gather at this venue for one of the largest congregations of global intelligentsia. The Davos Congress Centre has played host to the World Economic Forum since 1987 and to its predecessor, European Management Symposium, before that. The most important landmark of the beautiful Swiss city of Davos, the venue is one of the busiest convention centres of modern times.
The popularity of the Davos Congress Centre can be evinced from the fact that the venue has undergone three extensions since it opened for meetings and conventions in 1969. The most recent development, in 2010, has brought around 11,500 delegates to the venue in the latter half of 2012.
