  • Monthly Gathering – The second Monday of most months, SMAC members gather for drinks, a meal and friendly discussion. For the Winter of 2016/2017, these meetings happen at the Onyx Bar of the Park Hyatt Hotel in Zürich. Beginning in June 2017, they will return to the freshly refurbished Lake Side Restaurant, Bellerivestrasse 170, 8008 Zürich. Members gather at circa 18:30. There is no gathering in July or August, or when it would conflict with other SMAC events, within the same week. Please check the full schedule for details.
