HuffPost Takes On the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland

Jan 22, 2014

As 2,500 business, political and academic leaders from around the world gather at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, The Huffington Post and HuffPost Live are there to be a part of the crucial conversation and provide a venue for attendees to relax, connect with others and experience the power of technology.

The Huffington Post has partnered with Microsoft for a co-branded space, the Microsoft-Huffington Post Cafe, where delegates can have meetings, relax, recharge, refuel or just catch up on work throughout the week. From a HuffPost Live studio located within the Cafe, host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin will be interviewing world leaders, business executives, journalists and others about the important discussions and themes at the event, which officially opens on Wednesday, January 22. The Huffington Post and HuffPost Live's coverage can be found here.

The World Economic Forum is also serving as launch pad for THEWORLDPOST, a new online publication from the Huffington Post in partnership with the Berggruen Institute on Governance. The site went live today and replaces the World section of the Huffington Post. In addition, the content will be made available to HuffPost's 10 international editions, including France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Japan and Brazil and syndicated to print publications around the world.
