The Delphi Economic Forum 2022 is returning to the historic town of Delphi in central Greece for its seventh edition that will take place as a live event during April 6-9.

“We are happy to return to Delphi after the unfortunate events of the last couple of years,” Delphi Economic Forum President Symeon Tsomokos told reporters during a press conference on Tuesday.
