Finally a physical event again

After a long break, countless virtual webinars, workshops and events, we are all the more pleased to announce that there will finally be an event live, on site and in colour. Due to the current exceptional situation with the Corona Virus / COVID-19 the Asia Workshop and Arabian Souk committee have decided that the Asia Workshop and the Arabian Souk will be held together.

We would be very pleased to welcome you in person at the Educational Day, which will take place on 16 November at the Volkshaus Zurich.
