About the Alps Forum

The Alps Forum is an annual conference hosted by the Law and Economics Foundation St. Gallen. The focus of the forum lies on selected focal points of digital development.

The Alps Forum is unique in its concept which considers thematic interfaces from different perspectives. To do this, proven experts in the fields of economics, law, politics and academia jointly discuss economic, legal and social aspects at the Alps Forum.

Its rather small, exclusive setting (approx. 50 people) is also special. The Alps Forum thus offers space for a lively exchange in a confidential atmosphere far away from everyday life in the middle of the Swiss mountains.
