Programme of the 46th St. Gallen Symposium

Plenary Sessions

Plenary Sessions inspire the symposium's participants in the main auditorium and set the tone through keynotes, panels and One-on-One debate sessions.

Work Sessions

Work Sessions are at the core of the symposium. Smaller groups of around 30 participants engage in highly interactive debates with Leaders of Tomorrow on equal footing and off the record.

Background Sessions

Delve deeper with our Background Sessions in the university library. With great speakers, participants can lean back, soak up the input and enjoy fresh insights into current theories and affairs.

Social Sessions

Elegant Dinner Nights, Open House Nights in students’ apartments and the traditional International Buffet allow for a relaxing end to a productive day and let you pick up conversations left off in a session before.

Leaders of Tomorrow involvement

We offer various formats that allow the Leaders of Tomorrow to bring in their fresh perspectives in new and unparalleled ways. We make sure that their voices will be heard at our forum.

Dinner for the Circle of Benefactors

Our Circle of Benefactors, comprising leaders from 300 global organisations, join speakers and topic leaders for an engaging and relaxing night on the eve of the symposium.
