Will be held this year from February 18 to 20, 2022, at its usual venue in Munich, the Hotel Bayerischer Hof. The MSC 2022 will remain true to its traditional formats but will welcome fewer guests and media representatives as well as smaller delegations to ensure the health and safety of its participants and the Munich public.
While the pandemic prevented us from holding a traditional conference last year, we did organize a series of high-profile virtual and TV formats on the "Road to Munich" to keep the security policy dialogue among international decision-makers alive and to lay the groundwork for in-person debates in Munich in February 2022. Therefore, we are particularly pleased to announce that we are planning to hold a physical Munich Security Conference in 2022, which will take place at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, from February 18 to 20, 2022.
"Our world is in danger. Traditional certainties are crumbling, threats and vulnerabilities are multiplying, and the rules-based order is increasingly under attack. The need for dialogue has never been greater."
Wolfgang Ischinger •Chairman, Munich Security Conference
The MSC 2022 will be different from the conferences of previous years. It will not only be held in a reduced format with fewer guests, fewer media representatives, and smaller delegations travelling to Munich, but we will also introduce a number of innovative participatory formats to complement our traditional activities.
Our focus on high-level participation, maximum interaction and a carefully curated mix of public and off-the-record formats will remain.
We are well aware of the exceptional circumstances and the additional requirements due to the ongoing pandemic. The health of all stakeholders involved in the main conference as well as the Munich public is of paramount importance to us. Together with our partners and in close consultation with the relevant authorities, we are working on a comprehensive health and safety concept containing strict hygiene measures.

Geneva, 20 December 2021 – The World Economic Forum will defer its Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, in the light of continued uncertainty over the Omicron outbreak.
The Annual Meeting was scheduled to take place in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland between 17-21 January 2022. It is now planned for early summer.
Participants will instead join a headline series of State of the World sessions bringing together global leaders online to focus on shaping solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
Current pandemic conditions make it extremely difficult to deliver a global in-person meeting. Preparations have been guided by expert advice and have benefited from the close collaboration of the Swiss government at all levels.
Despite the meeting’s stringent health protocols, the transmissibility of Omicron and its impact on travel and mobility have made deferral necessary.
The health and safety of everyone involved in physical meetings – participants, collaborators and the host community – have always been the Forum’s priority.
“The deferral of the Annual Meeting will not prevent progress through continued digital convening of leaders from business, government and civil society,” said Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. “Public-private cooperation has moved forward throughout the pandemic, and that will continue apace. We look forward to bringing global leaders together in person soon.”
The World Economic Forum will hold its 2022 annual meeting in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos from May 22-26, 2022
