TANKBANK MARSEILLE 2019 - Programme details

The presentations will be held at the Marseille Chamber of Commerce building,

Interesting fact The first known use of the term “Chamber of Commerce” actually occurred in Marseilles, where the evolution of the modern Chamber began in 1599. So our conference will be held in a very historic building indeed.

Delegates tickets will include all event meals and networking drinks  – accommodation will be at delegates own cost.
