Gloucester will host pool C of the event hosting Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and the Worcester Warriors and Davies, talking to the club website last week, was full of praise for the Sevens game in general.
"Sevens has done a fantastic job in terms of broadening the appeal of the game of rugby worldwide. It's a fantastic game to watch.
"The important thing about Sevens as well is that it challenges the skill set of a player because you are very exposed out there.
"You need to be able to execute your two one ones, to make your tackles, to deal with the contact area. Miss a tackle and a try is scored, there's no margin for error.
"There's also the level of conditioning that the players require. It's a unique, hard and entertaining sport to watch and a form of the game that's going to form a significant part of our own preseason training."
Gloucester have yet to make it out of the pool stages in the two events to date but Davies revealed that part of the club's preseason preparations will see all the squad get the chance to reveal their Sevens prowess.
"When we're out in Tignes on our preseason training camp, one of the things that we will be doing is staging a Sevens tournament featuring the whole squad.
"Partly because it will enable our players to work on their core skills and expose them in that environment. But also because it will be preparation for our participation in the JP Morgans Sevens Series at Kingsholm."
The event will mark the first occasion that Davies sends a Gloucester squad out into competitive action and, as such, isn't to be taken lightly.
"It's a very important occasion. It's the first chance that we get to represent Gloucester Rugby as a new look team. It's at Kingsholm, in front of our own supporters, so it's an important tournament for us.
"The fact that the evening will also feature a number of Gloucester's traditional rivals will also add a little spice to it.
"We should have a great crowd there on the night and it will all help to create an atmosphere where the players will have every incentive to give it their all for the shirt. It should be a very exciting night."
