Events

In addition to the mediation of bespoke introductions, Princip.al brings it members together via the means of:

  1. Small-scale round table events.
    These typically take place over lunch or late afternoon and never last longer than 2 hours, allowing participants to combine involvement in the event with other commitments.
  2. An annual conference.
    Princip.al’s next conference will take place on 21 November 2019 in Brussels.  The 2018 inaugural annual conference took place on 21-23 November 2018 in Antwerp.  The conference tackled the theme of ‘longevity’ and offered numerous networking opportunities for members of the Princip.al community.

Princip.al has organised more than 60 round table sessions in London and the Benelux region, covering investment topics as diverse as real estate, tech start-up valuation, agriculture, and impact investing at market rates of return.  The schedule for 2018 and 2019 is outlined in the table below.

Please note: Princip.al events are typically sponsored by selected organisations who cover the costs of organsing the events in return for exposure to our community. Consult a list of ‘Past Events‘ along with attendance statistics over the past years.  For details of our full range of opportunities, email julie(at)princip.al
