UBS Forum 2017

Changing the balance

Milan, February 2, 2017
Rome, March 13, 2017

UBS Forum is our flagship event, taking place in many European cities. In 2017, UBS Forum toured in Milan on February 2 and in Rome on March 13.

How is the balance between societies, economies and politics changing? What urgent topics do we need to discuss? What have we learned from history? How will the election results change things?

We tackled all these questions and more, with the help of experts and international speakers.
