The world’s global village for meetings

Are you up for a corporate scaling of the Swiss meetings summit?


Mash Media, publisher of CMW, has announced a new partnership for the New Year with Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau (SCIB) and Davos Klosters CVB to deliver the first European Corporate Leaders’ Summit in the world-famous destination of Davos, 22-24 September 2021.

This exclusive event will be hosted by SCIB and Davos CVB, providing the perfect environment for select heads of events from leading corporates across Europe to network, learn and share experiences in intimate peer-to-peer groups. 

A relaxed environment is designed to provide a backdrop for networking, blue sky and collaborative thinking to chart innovative paths ahead as we all grapple with the challenges of the post-Covid world. Small discussion groups will gather over three days, intermixed with opportunities to try local experiences. 

Each group session will be hosted by an industry expert and will cover subjects such as:

• Health & wellbeing

• CSR & sustainability

• Security risk/crisis management

• Supply chain management

Delegates will be offered the opportunity to relax in between sessions taking advantage of the nature, and cultural offerings in this beautiful part of the Alps. These include outdoor sunrise yoga; mountain biking across first-class trails; golf; watersports on the Lake of Davos; a chance to play the Alphorn; a trip on the nostalgic mountain railway and an opportunity to take in the scenery or learn about how Davos-cheese is made, among other surprises.

As with Mash Media’s sister winter events, the European Corporate Leaders’ Summit will be a unique and sought-after experience, offering a balance between networking, learning and experience.

Switzerland is a meetings destination with a long tradition and the country is a drawcard for both event organisers and delegates, who can count not just on spectacular settings, but also on a high-level of professional expertise in all areas of the meetings process. 

 SCIB, part of Switzerland Tourism, is a useful first point of contact for advice for all Swiss related meetings and events queries, from initial enquiry stage right through to site inspections and videos for pitches.

 Bettina Mumenthaler, head of SCIB UK/Ireland says the bureau is “delighted” to be able to act as a host destination for the European Corporate Leaders Summit and to welcome corporate decision-makers to the country. “Switzerland is the perfect place for this type of event – the fresh mountain air in Davos, a destination that is famous for its long tradition of excellent corporate events, will be the perfect setting for many open and inspiring discussions about the future of this important industry.”

The Convention Bureau Davos markets the destination Davos Klosters and embraces its leading suppliers and event agencies. The bureau promises the views for a seminar or congress room from Davos Klosters are as promising as from the local mountain tops. The destination’s various locations can host up to 15,000 guests and Davos Congress Centre, alone, can host up to 5,000 people across its 34 rooms and halls.

Davos Klosters offers an event environment with everything from traditional mountain hut magic. to outdoor activities and carriage rides. The principle is: Everything imaginable is possible.

Marika Zanoletti, head of business sales, Davos Destinations Organisation says: “We feel very honoured to have been chosen as host destination for the first edition of the European Corporate Leaders Summit. Davos has a tradition of over 50 years to be the place where leaders meet. We are delighted to welcome corporate decision makers to experience the ‘Spirit of Davos’ – familiarity and confidentiality in a ‘global village’ with networking in a village atmosphere and urban infrastructure in an imposing mountain world. The ideal place for extraordinary events that are guaranteed to be unforgettable.”

Mash Media international portfolio director Simon Farnfield adds: “We are very excited to be extending our European Summit forum format with the addition of a summer event in Davos. I would encourage European based corporate conference organisers to consider applying to attend in September.”
