WEC Rome 2019 Audience 3 300x169

Our World Economic Conferences provide a rare glimpse into our financial futures, enable attendees to learn from the leading economic expert, and attract like-minded individuals from around the world. As a politician and past guest speaker Nigel Farage said, the WEC is “the alternative to Davos.” Perhaps our past attendees can explain it best:



“A snapshot of what is really going on in the world. Eye opening and life changing.” (Orlando 2022)

“Relationships built have become nearly as good as the conference itself. I also feel the conference has allowed a more personal, almost visual, understanding of how everything is all connected. It’s more than just an academic understanding.” (Orlando 2022)

“Every year I go, I get more out of it, thank you!” (Orlando 2022)
