Dear AMP177 classmates,
Greetings.  It has been a year since we completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.  The program provided a unique opportunity for each one of us to break-away from our busy personal and professional lives to fully be immersed in a world-class executive program with access to global leaders in business and academia.  Significantly, it was an occasion to create lasting personal and professional relationships with peers from around the globe.
As you have seen in the quarterly updates kindly prepared and delivered by Michael Fieldhouse, many of our classmates have gotten together in smaller groups over the past year on a number of occasions including drinks and dinner, the World Cup in South Africa, and a three-day weekend in the south of France at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc.  From the pictures alone, you can tell a great time was had by all at each gathering.
We now have the opportunity to gather as an entire class and build upon the relationships we established at Harvard.  We are pleased to invite you and your loved ones to the 1st International AMP177 Reunion at the Hotel ARTS in Barcelona, Spain from April 28 through May 1, 2011.
We have developed an incredible program encompassing various activities ranging from a case study discussion and a lecture, a debate on business and world affairs, to leisurely activities throughout the weekend.  Regarding the case study and lecture, we will have the one and only Professor Dick Vietor as our honored guest.  Group meetings will be organized to allow the class to reconnect and share re-entry stories and business presentations and discussions will be led by several of our classmates.
Upon to your arrival on Thursday evening, a welcome reception at the Hotel ARTS will be waiting you and your loved ones.  On Saturday evening at the Cavas Cordoniu, an amazing gala dinner with local entertainment has been organized.  In addition, we have also scheduled optional leisurely activities, including a tour around Barcelona, museums and cathedrals, and a shopping tour, with a professional shopper services.
This will be truly an unforgettable weekend with memories to last for years to come!!
In order to assist you with your planning, we created a dedicated website ( which provides reunion details, including specifics on Barcelona, the hotel, local restaurants, the program agenda and optional leisurely activities.  The website has also been enabled to allow on-line registration for the reunion itself as well as the leisurely activities.   In addition, we have engaged Mansour Travel to assist with flights arrangements.  We hope that you will find the website informative and user friendly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us or Lenny Spangberg, our event director.
Please note that we have negotiated special room rates at the Hotel ARTS that extend just before and after the reunion weekend for those intending to arrive early or stay later.
We truly hope you all will attend and kindly request that you submit the reunion registration form and the associated deposit no later than December 15th.   An earlier response would be greatly appreciated, helping us with further planning.
