On August 25th Erhverv Aarhus is once again hosting an event for our international business network for leaders and executives, International Leadership Forum.

This event is an informal "ILF get-together" at The Harbour Bath, Aarhus Ø

The area is separated by canals and has lots of water sport activities, an observation tower, great opportunities for food lovers, The Harbour Bath - among many other things. 

The event is all about informal networking, however, we are also pleased to say that former Chief City Architect Stephen Willacy will come by and give a inspiring talk about the architecture in the area and the visions for Aarhus Ø.
