World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2023

Location: Tianjin, China Date: June 27-29, 2023


The global economy is at a pivotal moment of transformation. Established business and industry models have not only been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic but are now being tested by a more competitive geopolitical and geoeconomic environment.

How to navigate these developments and simultaneously accelerate progress on critical common goals, from energy transition to safeguarding nature and climate, is top of mind for decision-makers worldwide.

To respond to this evolving landscape, the World Economic Forum is returning to the tradition of its “Summer Davos” and convening the 14th Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Tianjin, China. The Meeting will gather over 1,500 global leaders from business, government, civil society, international organizations as well as from among innovators and academics, at a crucial time for the global economic recovery.

The theme of the 14th Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2023 is Entrepreneurship: The Driving Force of the Global Economy.
