The Fall 2013 Study Tour will start on Sunday, September 15, 2013 and continue through the evening of Friday, September 20, 2013.
We advise participants to arrive at least a day or two prior to the beginning of the program due to the 9hr difference between San Francisco and Switzerland and the intense week’s program of visits and activities.

Business casual (trousers and open collar shirt, no tie or jacket necessary)
The weather in September is mild. However, the weather in the San Francisco Bay Area is a little unpredictable. A light jacket is recommended year round. Check the weather here.
Participants are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements. However, we want to facilitate travel as much as possible so find below some information regarding hotels. In addition, participants are responsible for their own meals unless when provided for.
We have specially negotiated rates with several hotels in San Francisco. We ask participants to book as early as possible since September will be a busy time in the area with the America’s Cup in full swing.
