Risk managers who want to take part in the risk manager only round table discussions at the 2014 FERMA Seminar should register quickly; the round table numbers are limited, and they are filling quickly. This is the advice from FERMA’s Project manager Véronique De Hertogh as she continues the planning for this event. The seminar will take place on 20 and 21 October at SQUARE in Brussels.

The event will be an exceptional occasion for European risk managers in 2014. It will be both the scene for the announcement of the results of the 2014 FERMA Risk Management Benchmarking Survey and the celebration of FERMA’s 40th anniversary with a gala dinner.

The dinner will take place at the famous Bozar, the Belgians’ fond name for their Palais des Beaux Arts. ( The building is an art deco masterpiece by Victor Horta (1861-1947), which has been intensively renovated and restored to create what is probably the most prestigious venue for the arts in Belgium.
