The Spanish Club at London Business School is proud to present its 2015 Spanish Business Day, taking place on Wednesday June 3rd, 2015 at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London.

In its second edition, the Spanish Business Day continues to promote the strengths of the Spanish economy, companies and professionals in front of the international community, attracting an audience of 200 people and offering an excellent networking opportunity.

This year's event will focus on Spain's position in the International Arena through discussions on successful international expansions of "made in Spain" companies, along with the exploration of new investment trends in Spain and the opportunities that are offered for international companies.

Through keynote addresses and two expert panel discussions, we will be able to hear first-hand from distinct directors about the international experiences of the most important Spanish companies, like Santander, Vueling or Abengoa.

Whether you are looking to start a business in Spain, expand internationally as a Spanish company, or better understand the latest Spanish investment opportunities, the Spanish Business Day and its range of speakers will give you the knowledge, insight and contacts you need.

After the conferences, the Spanish Club will also be hosting a networking reception in the London Business School gardens, where you can taste good Spanish food and wines.

We very much look forward to having you join us in London on June 3rd.
