The Annual Meeting of the New Champions will bring together a new and exciting generation of companies and leaders who are changing the global economic landscape. These New Champions have the vision to expand more rapidly than ever before, yielding dynamic new business opportunities, improving infrastructure and generating employment around the world.

While these companies have not yet reached the size and international reputation of global companies, they nevertheless have succeeded in gaining a global reach and competitive advantage through speed, flexibility and constant innovation. To remain competitive in this environment, current and future leaders need to be able to identify where in the market this fast growth is taking place, evaluate those business models that are proving the most effective and establish new relationships for growth.

The meeting will bring together established and newer players in a dynamic Davos-like environment to address the fundamental shifts taking place in competitiveness and innovation. Participating will be CEOs of the world's most influential companies, political leaders, members of the Forum's Community of Young Global Leaders, Technology Pioneers, new providers of finance, those driving the evolution of the Web 2.0 world, as well as top executives from Global Growth Companies.

The programme is designed to provide a unique combination of the insight to understand the challenges, the foresight of experts and the experience of today's industry leaders enabling businesses to compete in the global marketplace.
