Davos Staff May Sleep In Shipping Containers As Billionaires Swarm

The annual World Economic Forum junket has become so popular for the world’s elite that the Swiss ski resort is running out of accommodations, reports The Daily Mail.

The 2017 event sold out within days, and for 2018 it is thought there just won’t be enough hotel rooms to go round.

Around 11,000 visitors are expected in 2017, including 2,500 official guests along with their retinues, the media and other hangers-on.

The Forum was unable to find rooms for its 500 employees by the end of November, and although it has now secured beds for all of them, it is looking for another solution for future years.

As a result, the organizers are considering desperate measures by putting people up in shipping containers in car parks in 2018.

Spokesman Yann Zopf said: ‘We are facing more and more people every year.

‘We’ll manage for 2017, but we need to think longer term.’
