A new venue will soon be opening its doors to global leaders attending the 2024 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Just steps from the Forum’s Congress Centre at Promenade 115, Bloomberg House will be welcoming its very first guests when the conference starts next week.
Bloomberg has had a long-standing presence at Davos. Our team of news and television colleagues have been interviewing leaders in government and business at the annual Forum for decades. With many attendees already engaging with Bloomberg’s media platforms and the Bloomberg Terminal (and its associated data products), Bloomberg Media’s new home will host a range of events for Davos attendees and produce news for Bloomberg.com, Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg Radio.
By design, Bloomberg House is positioned to become a central meeting point where leaders in business, media, and policy making convene to forge connections, explore solutions and examine the world’s most critical challenges, providing full context for decision-makers at Davos and beyond. There’s a packed schedule of programming at the house this year with highlights including:
*The Year Ahead luncheon with Bloomberg’s Editor In Chief John Micklethwait and David Rubenstein, Co-Chairman and Co-Founder, Carlyle Group and Host, Bloomberg TV in conversation with Bill Gates, Co-Chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Ruth Porat, President & Chief Investment Officer of Alphabet and Google.
*Exclusive executive interviews: With Sam Altman, OpenAI CEO; Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund; Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO, Microsoft; Colm Kelleher, Chairman, UBS; and Ajay Banga, President, World Bank Group.
*Women Who Lead Cocktail Hour: With special guests including H.M. Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development; Vera Daves de Sousa, Finance Minister, Angola; Rachel Reeves, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, UK; Nicola Mendelsohn, Head of Global Business Group, Meta; Caroline Pham, Commissioner, CFTC; and Laura Cha, Chairman of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd.

Jessica Webber, Global Head of Bloomberg Live Experiences, said, “As our cross-platform news offering grew in strength and reach, Bloomberg House was a natural addition to our strategies of creating meaningful moments and putting our audience first. Our global audience is looking for high-quality news and context to shape their decisions and by having our own house, we will be able to convene influential leaders at Davos and set the stage for important conversations for the year ahead.”
