Europe Fides 2017
The Europe Fides AGM 2017 was hosted in Brussels this year and the highly anticipated and prestigious event, once again, did not fail to impress as Nina Fischer EuropeFides secretariat and the Hotel Amigo staff, welcomed and hosted their guests with the highest level of attention and customer care that one would only expect from such professionals.
The two day event started with an informal dinner at the Ristorante Bocconi, allowing introductions to be made and friendships re kindled from previous meetings.
After a fantastic introduction by the President of EuropeFides, Melina Pyrgou. A talk about the Geopolitics of Brexit and the International and External consequences for the EU was given by Prof. Dr. David Criekemans, a lecturer of international relations from the University of Antwerp.
Our very own Simon Marsh was the next to present on behalf of WSM Advisors to the members of Europe Fides on Brexit from the viewpoint of the UK 6 months after the referendum. Click here for full presentation.
A fine evening of dining at the restaurant Amadeo closed the first day’s events where everyone had the chance to catch up with other news from around the world.
Saturday saw the Annual General Assembly Meeting where a presentation of potential new members took place. Then a touch of humour from Kocks and Partners, David Diris ended the presentation and the day’s events.
A fabulous social and networking afternoon followed the presentation including a visit to the Old Masters Collection of Royal Museum of Fine Arts, a walk back to the hotel over Sablom, visiting the famous Belgian chocolate houses and rounding up the wonderful event with Dinner at the Belga Queen restaurant.
We await the next meeting in Germany in the summer, with as much anticipation and high expectation as Brussels 2017.
Other speakers at the meeting, included DR Johan Mevesan, Vita Sliede and Mariana Hagstom.
