Describing what it is like to be in Davos during the World Economic Forum annual meeting is almost impossible. (Which is why this article features an iPhone video produced using tools by our partner, Magisto.) Set at the base of a spectacular snow-covered mountain, Davos convenes heads of state, titans of industry, and celebrities to debate topics ranging from international trade policy to environmental issues to data security. By day, sessions held at the Congress Centre bustle with leaders from every continent. By evening, guests cram into venues all over the city for exclusive dinners and receptions hosted by some of the world’s biggest influencers. Accenture, McKinsey, Infosys, Wipro, Forbes, Fortune, Google, Salesforce, Yahoo, and dozens of other organizations bivouac along the Promenade and at the Belvedere and Intercontinental Hotels. The constant networking can be both exhilarating and exhausting. But as the confab winds down and delegates board planes and trains to re-scatter them across the globe, everyone seems to look forward to seeing each other again the following year.
