We've opened 10 tickets for DUAL members!

As our goal is to animate the alumni community but also to support their business endeavour, we decide to promote the INSEADers who make or sell wines or have a wine business with a small wine fair at INSEAD where they can tell their story and share their wines. Please join us at the "WINSEADers Wine Fair" on 5th December on the INSEAD Asia campus to meet these wine entrepreneurs, hear them share their stories and taste their wines!
