The Harbour Club advocates strong communication management in enterprises and organisations and promotes discussion of trends, core issues and the contribution of integrated communication to value. Apart from the organisation of the annual Swiss annual reports rating we hold the Harbour Club Symposium. This has become established as the most prestigious get together of the branch. The 200 or so participants have an opportunity as guests of a member company to meet the relevant CEOs alongside prestigious international speakers. The next symposium will be the guest of Novartis in Basel. It is scheduled for Thursday, 23 November 2017.
