The annual winter meeting is held in Davos, Switzerland while the summer one alternates between northeast China's Dalian and central China's Tianjin cities.

The Davos forums aim to engage up-and-coming leaders in business and politics, competitive cities, science and technology pioneers, and growing economies.

Last year's Summer Davos theme was "Driving Growth through Sustainability", and in 2009, it was "Relaunching Growth".
