WPL Annual Global Summit in Reykjavík

The WPL Annual Global Summit 2017 took place in Harpa concert hall and conference center in Reykjavík on November 28–30. The Women Political Leaders Global Forum (WPL) is the global network of female politicians, and the 2017 summit is hosted in cooperation with the Althingi – Iceland’s Parliament – and the Government of Iceland. CP-Reykjavik is a partner of Meet in Reykjavík and was the assigned PCO (professional congress organizer) for the summit.

Hanna Birna Kristjansdottir is the Chair of the WPL Executive Board, former Minister of Interior of Iceland, former Member of Parliament of Iceland, and former Mayor of Reykjavík. Meet in Reykjavík is proud to introduce Hanna Birna Kristjansdottir as one of our ambassadors for meetings in Reykjavík.

The conference was attended by a record number of guests, with 400 female parliamentarians and other senior politicians from nearly 100 countries. The summit took place under the special aegis of Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, the world’s first female president. Finnbogadóttir, elected in 1980 by Icelanders, served longer as president than any woman from any country.
