Module 7: the annual TRIUM alumni gathering

The annual alumni-led module is a highlight of the TRIUM calendar, offering the community the opportunity to reconnect and participate in discussions on business and political developments in a new global location each year.

The TRIUM Module 7 alumni event is built on the values of investing in the global network, nurturing relationships and continuing the learning process. Completely developed and led by TRIUM alumni, Module 7 introduces new markets, opens new business opportunities and deepens friendships between our diverse alumni.

Module 7 is held in a different global location each summer, visiting Washington in 2014, Rome in 2015,  Moscow in 2016, Durban & Cape Town in 2017, New York in 2018, Barcelona in 2019, and – following a hiatus due to the pandemic – Cartagena in 2023 and Baku in 2024.
