So, our Gala is not just a chance to catch up with old friends; it is also a chance to reach out to our growing membership and make new connections, as European business continues to grow and thrive in Vietnam.

Our Gala Dinner will feature a four-course meal, fine wines & spirits, live entertainment and a special guest speaker. It will also include a 'lucky prize draw' with great prizes up for grabs. (click here to view prizes
