ECU is dedicated to empowering organizations and their employees to shape a better future for their customers and staff. We achieve this by facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experiences that connect people and promote growth in the CEE region, with a particular focus on Food and Non-Food retail, FMCG, and Consumer products. Our flagship event, the Poland & Retail Summit 2024, was the largest of its kind in the region, attracting 400+ speakers and over 3000 attendees and establishing itself as a must-attend event for industry professionals. To get a sense of the experience of attending a conference with 3000 attendees, we invite you to visit our post-conference website, where you can view pictures and learn more about the event.

Interactive Business Round Table discussions

Flamebond roundtables bring together small groups of high-level experts in a highly interactive environment using a 'give and take' methodology and together they are working on solutions and concepts aimed at developing themselves and their businesses. 

Together, we search for solutions and we identify business opportunities based on case studies analysis and by using the Problem-Based Learning method. Each meeting is conducted online on a special exchange platform, and may involve a maximum of 12 participants. The well-planned structure and detailed preparation of the meeting from the merit and organizational side lead to a very efficient use of discussion time. During Flamebond meetings, we cover many different topics in areas such as retail, e-commerce, payments, innovations, production, and supply chain. Regardless of the subject, each meeting is an optimal solution for busy managers.
