A Magical Evening Awaits: Save the Date for the Swiss INSEAD Gala 2024

Friday, 13 September 2024 at Belvoirpark Restaurant, Zurich

Dear INSEAD Alumni,

Mark your diaries for an unforgettable evening of inspiration, fun and friendship in celebration of the INSEAD spirit! We invite you to join us on Friday, 13 September 2024 in Zurich for an evening gala evoking the enchanted atmosphere of Fontainebleau, at the elegant Belvoirpark Restaurant, overlooking the lake.

This special occasion will be graced by the presence of our new Dean, Francisco Veloso, marking his first official visit to Switzerland. This a unique opportunity to meet the leader steering our “force for good” alma mater into the future. 

In addition, Professor of Strategy and Academic Director of the Corporate Governance Centre Annet Aris will host our evening’s lifelong learning session on the theme “The new rules of the game in the digital world”.

Prepare for a night that dials up INSEAD’s most cherished values: diversity, lifelong learning, and community. This Switzerland-wide celebration is your chance to connect with alumni from all corners of the country, rekindle old friendships, and make new ones.

Following on the global INSEAD Day celebrations on 12 September, the timing of the gala enhances its significance as a celebration of everything that makes our school great.

In true INSEAD spirit, spouses and partners are not just welcome but celebrated. Discounted tickets will be available for them, so that we can make this a night to remember.
