We are pleased to announce the arrangements for the ZIRAT24, LCC15 and A.N.T. International Academy (ANTIA) Seminars that will take place in USA (ZIRAT24) and Sweden (LCC15, ANTIA and ZIRAT24). The ANTIA seminar in Stockholm is open to all organisations while ZIRAT and LCC are open only for ZIRAT and LCC members.

  • In USA, the ZIRAT24 Seminar will be held on 17–18 March, 2020 at Sheraton
    Sand Key Resort, Florida, USA.
  • In Europe, the seminars will take place in April, 2020 and will be hosted by Vattenfall, in Stockholm, Sweden:
    » The LCC Seminar will be held on the 15–17 April.
    » The ZIRAT24 Seminar will take place on 20–22 April.
    » The A.N.T. International Academy Seminar, will take place on the 23–24 April.

If your organisation has any special issues or topics you would like us to cover in future ZIRAT and LCC Programmes, please send your suggestions before the Seminars to Peter Rudling at peter.rudling@antinternational.com. Note that the ZIRAT and LCC participants will also have a chance to give these suggestions at the Seminars.

A.N.T. International, the ZIRAT and LCC experts will use your input to put together the most interesting topics to be covered in future ZIRAT and LCC Programmes.

For further information about the upcoming Seminars, please contact us via e-mail: seminar@antinernational.com or by telephone: +46 31 88 16 00.
