13th summit a complete success.
 
The past 13th summit meeting of the world market leaders was a complete success - according to the participants, who were full of praise and recognition. "The 13 has proven to be a lucky number," as was often heard. Outstanding speakers showed competently and with extremely strong opinions how they led their companies to the top and kept them there. As the "medium-sized companies of tomorrow", start-ups gave courage and, like the "established ones", impressively demonstrated what it means to "learn from the best".


One of the many highlights was the gala evening in the Carmen-Würth-Forum, in which the Würth Philharmonic and the Nobel Prize for Literature, Herta Müller, were able to captivate the almost 500 listeners with her unique way of speaking to create a thoughtful impression.


Reference to a small anniversary: For the 10th time, WirtschaftsWoche was an event partner of the Academy of World Market Leaders. A successful partnership: without the ADWM the summit meeting would not exist, and without WirtschaftsWoche  it would no longer exist; never change a winning team!


As the founder and co-organizer of this summit meeting of world market leaders, I would like to thank everyone involved on, behind and in front of the stage and I look forward to next year, when the 14th summit meeting will take place again in Schwäbisch Halll and Künzelsau-Gaisbach from 30.1. will take place until 2/1/24. dr Walter Doring

What is the difference between the Summit of World Market Leaders and the World Economic Forum in Davos?

 

Answer: The summit meeting took place from 1.-3. February 2022 LIVE took place.

 

WirtschaftsWoche and the Academy of World Market Leaders courageously opted for "Live" and were successful with it.

 

Whether the longest-serving Foreign Minister of the European Union, Jean Asselborn, or the SPD Federal Chairman Lars Klingbeil, or the Federal Research Minister Bettina Stark-Watzinger from politics or Lars Feld for science or numerous CEO's for business, including those of Kärcher, Voith Group , ElringKlinger, Bausparkasse Schwäbisch, Würth Group, BSH Hausgeräte, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bilfinger, HDI Group, Workday and many others - they all inspired and convinced with their statements.

 

In addition, the family entrepreneurs Wolfgang Grupp, Michael Otto, Reinhold Würth, who left lasting impressions with their life and company stories.

Encouraging start-ups such as NEURA Robotics, Morphais VC and others showed what the "medium-sized companies of tomorrow" will look like.

 

The Kunsthalle and the Würth Philharmonic offered cultural events of the very highest standard. No wonder there were enthusiastic comments. For example, in the Südwestpresse: "Never before has there been so much praise and enthusiasm for the summit meeting as this year."

 

Editor-in-Chief of WirtschaftsWoche Beat Balzli and Dr. Walter Döring jointly assure: "Next year we will make the thirteenth summit of the world market leaders in Schwäbisch Hall the top event for the world market leaders and the leading medium-sized companies in the DACH region".
