Davos is one of the oldest and most fashionable resort towns in Switzerland with a reputation for excellent skiing, freezing temperatures and as a playground for Europe's elite. Davos has always been the meeting point for global leaders, business and political elites and members of the 4th estate. For almost half a century, except in 2002 when the annual meeting was held in New York as a gesture of solidarity with the United States following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the annual World Economic Forum meeting has always been held in Davos with the World Economic Forum Executive Chairman, Professor Klaus Schwab.

Every year since 1971 the world's elite have gathered in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum's annual meeting. What started as a small conference about management has ballooned into a famously exclusive gathering of business people, academics, and government officials. The stated goals of the non-profit World Economic Forum are noble: the conference is organized around the principle that business leaders should work with leaders of government to address the world's problems.
