In line with our theme “New Hori­zons”, this year‘s Swiss Eco­nom­ic Forum will focus on the oppor­tu­ni­ties aris­ing from the pan­dem­ic and the chal­lenges that the com­ing decade will bring. Will we devel­op some­thing new or stick to what we know? What have we learnt that will help us to weath­er crises bet­ter in the future?

With deci­sion-mak­ers from pol­i­tics, busi­ness and acad­e­mia, we will dis­cuss lead­er­ship and stead­fast­ness – and how these qual­i­ties can help us to secure busi­ness suc­cess in times of uncer­tain­ty. Togeth­er, we will embark on a jour­ney into the “new nor­mal”, where illu­mi­nat­ing insights into bold thought con­cepts and a plen­ty of dis­cus­sions awaits.

Pub­lic reg­is­tra­tion for SEF.2021 is closed. Part­ner reg­is­tra­tions are still pos­si­ble via the but­ton below.

To ensure that your conference experience is as safe and unrestricted as possible, the Swiss Economic Forum uses the Covid certificate. With this measure, we are complying with the applicable official requirements of 23 June 2021.

The certificate proves that you are fully vaccinated, have recovered or have tested negative and releases us as organisers from further restrictions.

Admission to the conference is therefore granted to those who present a valid Covid certificate in combination with an official ID.
