World Economic Forum (WEF)

Annual Meeting of the New Champions (AMNC) 2016

For more than three decades, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has been holding its Annual Meeting in Davos Switzerland each January which is attended by leaders of government, businesses, academia and the arts. The Annual Meeting of the New Champions (AMNC), also known as the "Summer Davos", was created in 2007 by the Forum to provide the leaders of high growth companies with opportunities to discuss with the leaders of established multinationals on topics that will help them realize their potential as future multinationals.

As a Strategic Partner of WEF, Deloitte played an important role at the AMNC 2016 by participating in a series of panel discussions, workshops and industry partnerships in addition to organising a special event for WEF delegates.

Deloitte at WEF’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2016

Date: 26-28 June 2016

Location: Tianjin, China

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is reshaping the economic, social, ecological and cultural contexts in which we live. Breakthrough technologies are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this technological revolution are forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organizations create value and even what it means to be human. Collaboration between the next generation of industry, government and academia will be essential to turn uncertainty into prosperity.

Under the theme, The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Its Transformational Impact, 1,500 business leaders, policy-makers and experts from over 90 countries convened in Tianjin to shape a future of exponentially disruptive change.

Deloitte University Press is proud to present the following insight from the edge:
