ABOUT WORLD BUSINESS DIALOGUE
The prestigious World Business Dialogue 2017 would be held in Cologne, Germany from 6-10 March, 2017. Each year, brightest entrepreneurial international students, globally operating businesses, and distinguished scientists and politicians come together in WBD to join a cross-generational and cross-cultural discussion for new ideas and trend-setting innovation.
