BCG Partners with World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum engages leaders from all facets of society—business, politics, academia, and beyond—to shape global, regional, and industry agendas and drive positive change. As a strategic partner of the World Economic Forum, BCG joins a select group of about 120 global companies closely aligned with the forum's commitment to improving the state of the world.

Like our fellow members, BCG attends the renowned Annual Meeting in Davos, the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in China, and many regional meetings. As a strategic partner, we do even more. The World Economic Forum taps BCG’s people and insights for its collaborative projects, publications, and global communities. The goal of this work is to share best practices, engage stakeholders, improve policymaking, and inform business decisions.


Each year, BCG attends Davos alongside global business, government, social sector, academic, and media leaders. We take this opportunity to learn from our peers and to share our own thought leadership on an international stage. At Davos, we host events, connect with clients, attend sessions, and advance our mission: to unlock insight and have the courage to act. 

The 2019 Annual Meeting in Davos took place from the 22nd to the 25th of January. The meeting’s theme was Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. For more information on BCG’s role at this event, please visit our Davos 2019 page.
