Apart from 2021, the WEF DAVOS event gathers annually every January, with an estimated 3,000 people from the fields of business, politics, science, and culture coming from 90 countries. The event in Davos will be covered by some 500 journalists reporting for domestic and foreign news outlets.
As such, security is both conspicuous and discreet in Davos. Soldiers patrol the streets of the small ski-orientated town and security checks are carried out on personnel, vehicle, and bags on access roads into the area. Snipers can be seen stationed on the roofs of buildings; security is obviously extremely tight within the main Forum as well, known as the Congress Center.
Navigating the day-to-day security mandates, vehicle restrictions, housing scarcity, and credential requirements can be extremely challenging for any US Delegate when it comes to providing executive protection.
The K Street Group with an operational base in Davos has created this 2-day curriculum specifically for corporate security professionals that are planning to attend the 2022 event in Davos with their protectees.
