European Economic Congress 2024

EEC is a place that combines opportunities to establish and develop business relationships with the exchange of experiences and acquisition of knowledge. The 16th edition of the European Economic Congress will feature a number of innovations that will not only raise the event’s profile, but also develop the strongest assets of the EEC brand.

LARGER EEC SPACE Interest in the Congress is growing year on year, and that is why the next edition of the event will bring changes in the form of expanded exhibition space.
BUSINESS & POLITICS The European Economic Congress is a forum for talks for business representatives and politicians at every level – each year, the event hosts representatives of foreign governments as well as European Commissioners.
NEW FORMS OF SPEECHES The forms of speeches will also be improved, with shorter debates and more one-on-one talks and individual presentations.
PARTICIPATION OF GUESTS FROM ABROAD Each year, the group of EEC speakers includes an ever-growing number of representatives of foreign companies, institutions, organisations and governments..
THE MEDIA Each year, the Congress is reported on by dozens of nationwide media titles as well as industry magazines and portals, including foreign ones, and the most important editorial teams are present at the event together with their studios.
BANQUETS & GALAS The evening galas and banquets serve the purpose of good integration and building partnerships, while also being a perfect place to continue the talks behind the scenes.
VIP & PREMIUM ZONES Special zones for Congress guests with access to catering also provide an ideal space for conversations and establishing new relationships.

Discussed subjects

The subject of the European Economic Congress revolves around the most critical branches of the economy, directions for social development, ad well as trends and events with a potential to shape the future. In a volatile reality, the agenda of the EEC is subject to constant change. However, the main subjects of the May debate have already been decided. Defining its substantive framework, with content provided by our guests, they will contribute to the worth of the Congress.
