History

Davos has a long-established tradition as a congress, research and clinic resort. The health resort of earlier days has developed into the Davos research centre. The knowledge accumulated here - primarily in the fields of natural science and medicine - has been passed on in courses since the beginning of the 20th century.

The advanced training courses in medicine have always been extremely popular and in 1969 led to the construction of the Davos Congress Centre. Davos has become known as a congress venue principally because of the World Economic Forum (WEF), which has been held here at the end of every January since 1971. Davos progressively developed into an internationally known and acclaimed congress location and so the Congress Centre was extended in 1979, after only 10 years. This extension also proved insufficient to cope with the increasing number of participants and the centre was extended again in 1989 and 2010.
