Liberate the Mediterranean

A day of panels and talks for business leaders and family offices who want to help the region to thrive after lockdown.


Monaco, Europe.


22 September 2020.


Few areas around the world have been harder hit by recent events than the Mediterranean.

With famously long lifespans, the region has seen a huge number of elderly people suffer.

Our reliance on tourism means the travel industry  restrictions have us hit hard.

Meanwhile, much of our care has been bought in from outside the region.

The net loss for the Mediterranean has been huge. But now there is a great opportunity. We have seen the weaknesses of our region’s supply chain, industry, economy and healthcare in one single event, and we have the information and expertise to fix it.

As family offices with our collective knowledge and influence from the world of business, we invite you to be part of a revolutionary day of discussion aimed at liberating the Mediterranean.

Through panels, talks and informal networking, we will find solutions to make the region self-sufficient and well prepared to look after its people, and bringing prosperity in the wake of a crisis.

Participating businesses will be able to come out of lockdown and go directly into talks with a room full of potential investors, interested in how some key products and services can help.
