The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) is set to take place in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos again next year. However, reasonable hotel rates are a prerequisite and the Covid-19 situation is also a decisive factor, according to organisers.

“We want to remain true to tradition and Davos,” WEF spokesman Yann Zopf told the Swiss News Agency Keystone-SDA on Thursday. The WEF is currently in talks with the hotel industry and the municipality of Davos, he said, confirming a statement from the tourism association Destination Davos Klosters.

The conditions in Davos have always been good, Zopf said, adding that the WEF is a Swiss organisation. “We want to stay in Switzerland.”

The WEF’s annual get-together of business, political and civil society leaders is planned for January 17-22, 2022. For it to take place then, rate negotiations should be completed in late summer, Zopf said.

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s WEF annual meeting will be held in Singapore from August 17-20.
