Preceding the Friday kick-off, conference hosts Degroof Petercam – IMAP France & Belgium, are holding an exclusive invite-only symposium on Thursday April 7 at Bridge – Pont Alexandre III. Presiding will be Degroof Petercam Chairman, Mr. Gilles Samyn, with renowned Chairman of the Institut de l’Engagement and CEO of the Greater Paris University Hospitals (AP-HP), Mr. Martin Hirsch, the afternoon’s keynote speaker.
Then, on Friday morning, select journalists have been invited to attend a special geopolitical monitor panel session in which IMAP and external experts will be looking behind the headlines of the events in Ukraine and discussing the medium and long-term consequences for Europe, together with the war’s implications on M&A, the financial markets and industry, as well as international ESG policy.
