The aim of the Congress is to highlight phenomena and trends whose role in the future and development of economy is essential.
Large and small, traditional and innovative, domestic and global businesses recognize the three days conference in Katowice to be an effective and productive platform for B2B networking.
The combination of these functions, constituting the mission of the European Economic Congress, has been unprecedented in the event industry, which was proved by the number of people participating in subsequent editions reaching as many as 15,000. The number of people who followed the event could have been counted in hundreds of thousands. The forecasts produced by the Congress – taken into consideration by investors, managers and politicians – have always had an impact on our reality.
2020 has been – in economy, industry, the MICE sector and history of EEC – a time of unique challenges. The world as we know it has changed dramatically and rapidly, independent of anyone’s will, in a way that was impossible to predict. The economic and social consequences of COVID-19 pandemic are definitely going to stay with us for longer.
The European Economic Congress has not abandoned its mission in this extremely volatile time, but instead has continued it with the use of new tools, models and channels of communication.
Events organised under the brand of EEC Online were held in May and June, attracting hundreds of thousands of viewers. As eecpoland.eu we broadcast online webinars, presentations, discussions and debates devoted to the subject of economy in search for answers to basic questions.
The online event coincided with the planning of the September live edition of the Congress scheduled for 2-4 September, 2020, and taking place in the International Economic Congress in Katowice. It goes without saying that all safety rules will be strictly observed during the event. Moreover, organisers have provided for the use of technologies enabling open access to all materials related to the Congress, while the event itself is going to be interactive and reported on an unprecedented scale.
The thematic scope of the September edition has already been developed. Understandably, many subjects of the 12th edition will be approached from a new perspective, but the agenda of the three days meeting will remain as diversified as ever, addressing key challenges of reality, including the ones whose relevance has not been affected by the pandemic.
Feel invited to participate in the Congress in this very special time. Taking the witnessed upheaval and turbulence into consideration, a debate about the world emerging from chaos and cooperation in the face of great change is today more necessary and momentous than ever.
