The list of everyone attending Davos this year

Next week, 2,633 of the world’s elite and other guests will descend on Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. We’ve got the list of participants that was released today.

This year’s conference will bring together 196 academics, 288 government officials, 48 representatives from international organizations, and 2,101 people from the private sector. Only 15% of expected attendees are women, down from 17% last year. (All of the exact numbers can shift slightly in the final days up to the conference, given last-minute cancellations and confirmations.)

Use the interactive tool above to explore the participant list. You can search and sort based on participant name, title, age, nationality, and associated organizations as reported to the forum.

The conference perennially draws politicians, royalty, and business leaders from more than 100 countries to the mile-high town near Austria. Over four days, attendees keep busy inside the venue with official sessions like “The China Context,” “The Neuroscience of Leadership,” and “The Future of Extractives.”

Outside of the official sessions, corporations of all industries try to grab the attention of attendees with courtesy services, gift bags, and parties. The locale leads many to the mountain tops, as well: Davos has six skiable peaks.

Correction (Jan. 16): A previous version of the infographic in this article included a category for first-time Davos attendees based on data provided by the forum. WEF now says that information was incorrect and declined to provide corrected data, so we have removed the category.
