Maria Bartiromo Behind The Scenes At Davos: Gearing Up
I remember in 2001, after September 11th, the World Economic Forum took the meeting to New York. And they did the meeting at the New York Stock Exchange. It was a very nice gesture to basically commiserate with America and support America. But at the same time, the meeting was very different than it was-then it usually is in Davos. The reason is because when people come to New York, they've got a million things to do, whereas Davos is very different. And I think that's why Klaus Schwab chooses Davos, because there's nowhere else to go.
So you end up sitting in the sessions. You're there in the Congress Center. You're mingling with everyone, all in one concentrated place. I think that’s the brilliance of this meeting, because you get all of these world leadersto come and actually engage in conversation and make change. It's been a terrific meeting over the years. I always come home smarter so I'm sure I will come home smarter this time.
