World Communication Forum Davos 2010
The launching of the first WCF was both useful and enjoyable – thanks to the efforts of the Top Com team and all our participants and partners’ kind support, valuable contribution and truly positive attitude!
The Forum brought together people from around 21 countries, 35 larger or smaller companies, and nearly 10 associations and international institutions. Over 65 participants – representatives of different cultures, religions, social groups, and networking – were offered no less than 23 presentations, among which several outstanding speeches, and many thoughtful comments. Guests from Saudi Arabia, USA, Kuwait, Oman, Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, UK, Portugal, Spain, Lithuania, Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, and Belgium proved that the harmony in diversities is achievable, while the internet audience had the opportunity to watch the forum’s web-translation in real time online!
Organizations like Swiss International Air Lines, European Newspaper Publishers’ Association, Business School Lausanne, Trans-Arabian Creative Communications, International Federation of Communication Associations, Moscow International Business Association, Mobile Marketing Association and many more supported the idea of the forum and helped the organizers in spreading it worldwide!
We are sure that for every participant there was something new to take and apply directly into their business and that all our guests and supporters look forward to the Second World Forum “Communication on Top” that will take place on February 17th – 18th, 2011, again in Davos!
