Turning from an isolated ski town into an icy cold setting for the planet’s most influential business, politics and scientific talks, Davos Switzerland is once again playing host to this year’s World Economic Forum. And offering respite to our Indian tycoons participating at this year’s conference is Audi, which recently invited the corporate honchos for an exclusive Ice Experience at the town’s Seepromenade.
