The Annual Meeting of the New Champions is the foremost global business gathering in Asia. After five years, it is widely known as the Summer Davos – reflecting the “spirit of Davos” that for more than four decades has meant openness, collegiality and frank, yet friendly, exchange among leaders from business, government, academia, civil society and media.
The Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2011 brought together over 1,500 participants from 90 countries to share strategies and solutions and discuss global issues and risks under the theme Mastering Quality Growth. Every New Champion community – including Global Growth Companies, Young Global Leaders, Young Scientists, Technology Pioneers and Social Entrepreneurs – engaged with Forum Members and Partners in record numbers. Joining them were the first Members of the Forum’s newest community, the Global Shapers – leaders of significant potential aged between 20 and 30.
Plans are underway for the sixth Summer Davos, which will be held in Tianjin, People’s Republic of China from 11 to 13 September 2012.
