Further Description / Program
The event will consist of two distinct parts. We will first start with a strategy meeting where we will offer the opportunity to members and friends of SuSanA to exchange on the future role of SuSanA, its position and potential in the sector, with a specific focus on its key feature: the SuSanA Forum. We will then leave the meeting room and head to the roof terrace to continue the discussions, get to know each other over a drink or two and enjoy the view. Please note that drinks and food at the rooftop bar are on self-pay basis.
