2nd Pillar trade fair

All key stakeholders in the pension fund world meet for two days to gather important information, continue their education, socialise and gain an overview of the range of services offered by the various providers.

Vorsorge-Symposium/2nd Pillar trade fair postponed until 9 - 10 June 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Vorsorge-Symposium and 2nd Pillar trade fair have had to be postponed until 2021. As the organiser, vps.epas regrets this decision but the health of the visitors, exhibitors and speakers is more important. Content planned especially for the Vorsorge-Symposium is being made available online. There will be more information on this to follow. The trade fair and the Vorsorge-Symposium will take place in Zurich on 9 and 10 June 2021. The 2nd Pillar trade fair 2021 (Salon PPS) in Lausanne has been cancelled. The Vorsorge-Symposium2021  in Zurich will also be aimed at French-speaking visitors, as was the intention for this year.

We will tell you how you can take part in the digital symposium programme on 19 and 20 August and 27 October 2020, so save these dates in your calendar.
