The five-day annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) is held in the Swiss ski resort town of Davos.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos is known for attracting some of the most powerful and influential people in the world but the five-day summit is a lucrative opportunity for a different profession - sex workers.

According to reports, the demand for sexual services increases significantly during the annual WEF summit, as business leaders, politicians, and other elites gather in the Swiss ski resort town. Many sex workers travel to Davos specifically for the event, seeing it as a prime opportunity to make money.

In 2020, an investigation by The Times found at least 100 sex workers travel to Davos for the summit according to a Swiss police officer.

The escorts are booked and check-in to the same hotel as the delegates while DailyMail quoted one sex worker as saying that many make bookings to party at their suites with their employees.
