This year’s edition of the European Congress of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises aims to restore the supply chain and oversee the further development of the economy, therefore the B2B meetings and tools allowing entrepreneurs to connect have become the organizer’s top priority. It is worth noting that organization of a three-day event during a pandemic year for 8,000 participants would be highly risky and could thus expose them to COVID-19, which is why the organizers have also set as their goal the mitigation of such risk, while taking account of the needs of the market and focusing on saving the economy.
This year’s edition of the Congress will be held under the slogan B2B: Back to Business. The event itself will be organized between September and December 2020 in the area of the GZM Metropolis and the Silesian Voivodeship.
Each day will be devoted to one thematic path as part of which decision-makers representing various interests (entrepreneurs, local governments, central administration bodies) will meet at a round table and have an opportunity to discuss issues of key importance for a given path. Following the discussion, recommendations will be drawn up, which will then be provided to both central and European Union bodies.
The next phase will consist of B2B meetings – entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet in person as well as to use a platform prepared particularly for this purpose, allowing them to connect with our foreign guests.
The event will be concluded with an evening dinner prepared for our VIP guests, who will once again be able to resume their round-table conversations. The number of seats will be limited so as to avoid any unnecessary risk.
