Tradeshift Sanctuary in Davos: a global meeting point for disruption

January 19, 2016 Tradeshift Editorial Team

Tradeshift Sanctuary

With digital transformation the world is becoming an incredibly complex place and global leaders are looking for answers. We decided to blaze a direct path to those answers and invited some of the globe’s leading thinkers on policy, politics, and business to Tradeshift Sanctuary in Davos during the World Economic Forum 2016.

The Tradeshift Sanctuary is much more than a meeting of minds. It’s a transformed historical church, featuring the art of SupaKitch and Alëxone, content partnerships with CNBC and TechCrunch, and many “surprise” presenters. Our hideaway is a place for guests to relax, connect, and get inspired in the midst of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The conversation we’re facilitating is beyond the somewhat static confines of the WEF. We’re continuing the WEF’s legacy of being an open forum for big ideas, but accelerating the process by bringing in the real disruptors and agents of change. We believe that business–especially big business–has never moved faster, making agility the greatest imperative for success over the coming decade.

We think software can underpin agility and will be discussing this and more all week. In addition to the scheduled panels and speeches, we’ll be hosting daily firesides, parties, and interviews with executives and thinkers covering topics in technology and business. You can follow along on Twitter @tradeshift, Facebook, and Linkedin. Also, catch the live streams and content updates.

Lofty goals don’t just end in conversation though. Tradeshift will be actively promoting our long-term sustainability and circular economy initiatives as well.

Tradeshift is a force for positive societal change through its work with the Global Agenda Council on the Future of IT Software & Services where it provides thought leadership to the World Economic Forum’s Information Technology Industry community and to the digital agenda of the Forum. We’re well placed to do this, following up on a big year in Davos in 2015, when we won the Circular Economy Digital Disruptor Award.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the week and be sure to follow along in real-time on social media.
