2017 Alumni Reunion

Join us for the 4th Annual Alumni Reunion, 3 - 5 November 2017 at Maison de la Paix, a 3-day event dedicated to you and your family. You will enjoy a rich and remarkable programme (please sign up to the different sessions), networking with alumni from all over the world and sharing your experience with the Institute’s students. The highlight of the weekend will be the Gala dinner followed by a raffle at the InterContinental Hotel in Geneva on Saturday 4 November.

Individual seats at the dinner are not assigned, however if you wish to come as a group, you have the possibility to buy a table (8 seats) or a half-table (4 seats) together. One person will need to arrange the set-up, indicating to us the names of the invitees and paying the corresponding amount. This person will receive two raffle tickets for a full table and one for a half-table.

The starting price for the gala dinner is CHF 125 per seat. You can also take the opportunity during your payment to contribute to the alumni scholarship by buying a CHF 200 or 300 ticket per seat.

Registrations and payments are accepted until 29 October
