Dear Alumnae and Alumni, Dear Friends and Guests,
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to a very special weekend in Edinburgh. As a premiere, we have chosen the capital of Scotland for our IAAG Annual Conference in Edinburgh on 14 – 16 September 2018. As the dates coincide, we want to celebrate to celebrate the GLOBAL INSEAD DAY with our German alumni and our Scottish fellow alumni.
Like in the previous years, we set up a well-rounded program to provide you with countless opportunities to meet fellow INSEAD alumni and friends while enjoying the unique and rich culture of the Scotland‘s capital:
We start the weekend by reviving the elegant and special atmosphere of the castle scenery back at our INSEAD days in Fontainebleau at the famous Scottish mansion “The Gilmerton House” with a Welcome Dinner highlighting the local cuisine accompanied by exquisite whisky tasting.
Embracing INSEAD’s business and academic excellence we will dive into the world of digitization in the finance sector learning about Fintech and Artificial Intelligence. Expert speakers and professors will provide you with insights how Edinburgh has emerged as one of the vibrant hot spots for startups of the European Fintech sector and promising digital technologies.
On Saturday night, we are proud to have secured the exceptional venue of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh to celebrate the Global INSEAD Day with a glamorous gala dinner ball in its impressive library.
Amongst these highlights we also show you the best of Edinburgh with especially tailored culture tours to surprise even those who are already familiar with the Scottish capital. Finally, the farewell brunch on Sunday let us finish this weekend with style.
We look forward to sharing three wonderful days in Edinburgh with you!
