FERMA invites you to join your colleagues for a special event. It’s the 2014 FERMA Seminar – and celebration of FERMA’s 40th anniversary – taking place on 20 and 21 October in Brussels. The event is returning to FERMA’s home in Brussels at a central venue called Square and there will be a special gala dinner at an outstanding venue included in the registration, which is free for risk managers. The focus of the Seminar will be the announcement of the results of FERMA’s 7th risk and insurance management survey, but this year will see a redesigned programme designed to allow risk managers more time to exchange views and to network.

The technical committee is still working on the programme but FERMA’s events coordinator Véronique De Hertogh provides a preview. “There will be fewer panels but we will have roundtables. There will also be a closed session for risk managers only so they can be open about their views.”

Véronique adds that reducing the ecological footprint of the event is among the planning aims for the Seminar – along with increased convenience for those attending. The Square is in central Brussels, so everything is in walking distance or public transport with direct connections to Brussels Airport and Brussels Midi Station.

“Come and find out the Brussels advantage,” she says.
