Connecting people for growth

Empowering Retail, Enriching Lives

At European Conferences United, we are more than mere facilitators; we are catalysts for a unified retail vision. Founded in 2002, our mission has been to transcend business growth, fostering consumer welfare and stimulating economic vitality throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Our Heritage: "Synergizing European Retail Since 2002"
Initiated at a crucial juncture for Europe, European Conferences United has been the cornerstone for integration, weaving together the old and new members of an expanding European Union. Our inception, synchronized with the EU’s enlargement, embodies our commitment to not just observe, but actively shape, the retail landscape across the continent.

Our Mission:

"Our mission is to create a better and healthier environment for everyone, including consumers and professionals, by partnering with businesses, (local) governments, and NGOs. We aim to achieve common goals, such as social responsibility and economic growth, by connecting people and supporting the growth of businesses and careers. Our commitment to this mission drives us to use our strengths and resources to make a positive impact on people's lives."

Embarking on a Retail Odyssey: "The Poland & CEE Retail Summit 2024 Journey"

The road to the Poland & CEE Retail Summit 2024 is paved with more than just anticipation—it's built on the foundation of community and connection. Our Dinners2Connect initiative spans across the CEE region, bringing together distinguished professionals from various sectors of the retail industry. Through a series of approximately 25 carefully curated pre-conference dinners, we cultivate a forum for the brightest minds to engage in meaningful dialogue and build strategic relationships well in advance of the main event.

This ceremonial series was set into motion with an exceptional gathering graced by former Polish President Lech Wałęsa. As the 5th CEO Pre-Conference Dinner unfolded, his esteemed presence and the aura of his legacy marked the commencement of a series of engagements leading up to a summit that promises to be revolutionary—with over 300 speakers and 2500 attendees converging to redefine the future of retail.

Join this movement where each event is a step towards a profound transformation, culminating in a summit that's not just a conference, but a beacon of innovation and progress.
