We know, therefore we inform you: the largest economic event of Central Europe – the 10th European Economic Congress – will take place at the ‘Spodek’ Arena and the International Conference Centre in Katowice on 14–16 May 2018. Preparations are ongoing for the anniversary edition of the event.
As in previous years, the agenda will be the resultant of a creative continuation of the still valid topics that have been raised during the previous editions of the Congress, as well as of new issues – all of which herald the future of the economy of Europe and Poland.
The work on the concept and thematic agenda of the event is currently in progress – it is worth joining in. You can send your proposed topics and suggestions concerning the agenda using the following form.
An important event accompanying the European Economic Congress, and the one that the participants are looking forward to, will be the 4th edition of the two-day European Start-up Days (15–16 May 2018). This will be another meeting of representatives of young business with representatives of corporations interested in co-operation with smaller innovative companies/enterprises.
Every year, the agenda of the Congress is created through dialogue with our partners and guests of the Congress in order to reflect the full range of issues of economic significance. The openness of the Congress to different options and views has been its constant feature for over nine years.
The achievements of the past nine editions have proved that the European Economic Congress has found its permanent place on the map of the largest economic events in Europe.
Over less than a decade, the European economy, and the Polish economy as its part as well, have undergone profound changes. The Congress has consistently pursued its ambition to indicate trends and phenomena that keep changing the image of economic life, including its social context.
In 2018, the accent will surely be on the anniversary, including summaries of the decade and special events. However, a look into the future in order to cope with new challenges consciously and responsibly will remain the central idea of the Congress.
