Get Ready For World Communication Forum 2017 in Geneva

Date: 15.11.16

During the week of 13-17 March 2017, the World Communication Forum will be held again in Switzerland, for the 8th time. However, this time the Forum is planned to be hosted by the global capital of the world – Geneva, not in Davos.

Yanina Dubeykovskaya, Founder and Content Director of the World Communication Forum and President of the WCFA association, shared: “During the past 7 years, the Forum in Davos helped us shape a global community of communicators who view our profession as a mission – the mission to make this world more connected, more open, and more trusted. We believe that, especially today, communication is the key driver for the future development of the world, of humanity, and of each individual. We have created a new format for holding a business event and we have accepted representatives of more than 58 countries in our WCF family. Over 263 speakers have stepped-out in Davos during these 7 years. In the offline and online media, there have been 110 publications of the last edition – the WCF’2016. We launched the regional WCF format back in 2013 and we have already held over 15 regional forums in different countries. What is best of all is that we have made a lot of friends!”

Yanina Dubeykovskaya added that the Forum has grown and is ready to move from a Global Village, Davos, to a Global Capital, Geneva. The Forum aims to shape the global communication agenda and foresee new opportunities for communication’s impact on the future of humanity. Two days have become insufficient, so the organizers are launching a series of events under the brand WCF Geneva Week, focusing on different areas of communication: Global & Corporate Communication, Branding & Design, Science & Innovation Communication, and Education & Communication.

“I hurry to thank our partners: The Story (Poland), Don Valley (South Africa), GROU (Ukraine), Kaiser Communication (Germany), RADA (Egypt), JSP Communications (Nigeria), CROS (Russia), M3 Communications Group, Inc. (Bulgaria), Capital Communications (Hungary), Competence Communication (Italy)”, - said Ms Dubeykovskaya.
