FT Alpine Forum

Financial Times Alpine Forum

Friday 31st January 2020
20:00 Grand Hotel Royal & Golf Lounge Bar

Come and find out about the lives and perspectives of our wonderfully diverse panellists for this year’s Financial Times Alpine Forum.

Created at the time of the move to Crans-Montana and the expansion of the event, the Financial Times Alpine Forum provides a tangible and growing business platform. Alongside the mental exercise of the competition comes the stimulation of the in-depth discussions regarding current affairs, trends, challenges and the future of our lives.

The Forum is composed of a discussion panel of leading journalists, executives, comedians and social commentators. The mix is intentionally eclectic, engendering deep, lively and above all entertaining discussions, cutting across a range of topics with a debate on current affairs, state of the markets and concluded with a Q&A session.
