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."
