Geneva, 29 December 2021 - The World Economic Forum will defer its Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, in the light of continued uncertainty over the Omicron outbreak.

The Annual Meeting was scheduled in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, between 17-21 January 2022. The World Economic Forum now plans it for early summer.

Instead, participants will join a series of State of the World sessions bringing together global leaders online to focus on shaping solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

“Current pandemic conditions make it extremely difficult to deliver a global in-person meeting. However, preparations have been guided by expert advice and have benefited from the close collaboration of the Swiss government at all levels,” WEF stated.

“Despite the meeting’s stringent health protocols, the transmissibility of Omicron and its impact on travel and mobility have made deferral necessary,” the WEF announcement said.

“The health and safety of everyone involved in physical meetings - participants, collaborators, and the host community - have always been the Forum’s priority,” WEF added.

“The deferral of the Annual Meeting will not prevent progress through the continued digital convening of leaders from business, government, and civil society,” said Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. “Public-private cooperation has moved forward throughout the pandemic, and that will continue apace. We look forward to bringing global leaders together in person soon.”
