Networking opportunities

There will be plenty of opportunities to network with your peers during this conference. Our interactive conference format features a series of workshops/breakout sessions where we will encourage involvement and collaboration, giving you the chance to hear from your fellow business school professionals both during the conference and at the regular networking breaks.

As part of your conference experience, you will also be invited to our networking dinner on Thursday 20 June. We’re delighted to confirm that this will be held at the Municipal House Restaurant.

Widely regarded at the most beautiful Art Nouveau restaurant in Europe, the venue blends 20th century architecture and the best in modern Czech cuisine in Prague. The setting should provide a perfect backdrop for both dining and discussing the topics and themes from the conference.
