Three days of intense action.
The programme of the 47th St. Gallen Symposium will be published on 3 April 2017. The weekly updated list of confirmed speakers can be found here.
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 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.
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.
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.
