After the success of the Road to Warsaw Security Forum #Road2WSF in November 2020, the in-person conference is coming back to Warsaw and will be held on the 5-6th of October, 2021!

This year we are offering the WSF community a unique hybrid format of engagement. The WSF 2021 will be attended by a carefully selected group of around 500 participants, including heads of state, government ministers, world-renowned experts and Young Transatlantic Leaders. The participants will come to Warsaw to take part in panel discussions, debates, roundtables and networking sessions.

The WSF2021 will be available to the larger audience via an online platform allowing virtual participants to take part in main events, network among each other and interact with speakers.
