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-Symposium 2021 in Zurich will also be aimed at French-speaking visitors, as was the intention for this year.

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

The Vorsorge-Symposium is the top forum for all key 2nd Pillar decision-makers. The main element of the Vorsorge-Symposium is further training. For two days, pension fund managing directors, members of pension fund boards of trustees and pension fund experts will receive high-quality further training free of charge.

With this initiative, vps.epas is underlining its commitment to a decentralised second pillar managed on the basis of social partnership and helping management bodies to undertake their continuing professional development in a consolidated and efficient way. For many foundation boards, the symposium has become a firm fixture on the annual training and development calendar. 

This Vorsorge-Symposium is, of course, a recognised form of further training, offering industry-standard certification and points.

The 2nd Pillar trade fair will take place at the same time as the Vorsorge-Symposium, offering stakeholders a current market overview of 2nd Pillar service providers.
