Once a year – usually in late autumn – we organize a Business Cocktail for the international community. At this English-language evening event, you can find out interesting background information about our canton, its services and facilities, and its main institutions. After the talks, participants have an opportunity to network while enjoying cocktails. Details of upcoming Business Cocktails can be found on this website.

The Bern Expat Breakfast is a social and business networking event for expats, local companies, embassies, international organizations and schools. It is an opportunity for people to get to know the area and the region better and takes place three or four times a year, always hosted at a different venue: a local business, an embassy or an organization.
