There is a 1-to-3 ratio of LPs to GPs at this dinner and seating will be assigned to assure an even distribution of guests. All LP delegates will be invited to the dinner. To preserve the ratio, only Invest Europe member fund managers will be invited to the dinner and at a capacity basis. We recommend registering for the Forum early as invitations will be sent out on a first-come, first-served basis.
