The WCC through the years, and more about the Congress 

Held every two years in a different region of the world, the Congress provides unparalleled opportunities to connect and strengthen relations with a diverse and international group of individuals representing more than 100 countries. It is a valuable and dynamic forum facilitating the exchange of real-world ideas and best practices on both chamber and business activities.  


With both formal and informal occasions to develop networks, the Congress is the ideal place to establish institutional ties and promote trade and investment opportunities from attending companies, countries and regions. 

In an ever-changing business climate, the Congress addresses some of the most significant global issues of our time from sustainability and diversity challenges to slowing global trade and digital growth. 

Featuring renowned speakers from all over the word, Congress delegates benefit from first-hand knowledge and diverse perspectives on a broad number of pertinent topics slated for discussion during the event’s extensive three-day programme. 

This flagship event is much more than just a chamber’s gathering. In convening the globe’s most prominent leaders and brightest minds, we aim to help transform the future of business. 

After the 12WCC, the 13th edition of the Congress (13WCC) will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, in June 2023. It will be co-organised with the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services.
