Tomorrow's Europe

 

Inclusive, Innovative, Interconnected

 

With the upcoming European elections and Brexit, now is the most opportune time to take stock of where Europe stands in the world, of where opportunities lie and reform impediments making Europe lag behind. In a context marked by increasing contestation of social, political and economic models, it is imperative that the issues are addressed through meaningful debates.

 

EBS 2019’s objective is to enable businesses through our platform to play an essential role in finding solutions to key issues shaping the future of the continent. Just two weeks prior to the European elections, the EBS Summit will envisage how Europe should progress within the next 5 years setting the agenda for the next steps towards a stronger Europe.

EBS 2019: Tomorrow's Europe

Europe is at a crossroads facing an array of demands and challenges. Global players around the world have woken up and are increasingly gaining ground. Europe is on stand-by lacking a meaningful vision: its social, political and economic models are being second-guessed by part of its population and contested by some member states promoting new models. While these tensions escalate and cleavages grow, the European project is itself being questioned. Despite the turmoil, Europe must overcome the obstacles and forge a cohesive leadership as there exists no alternative to succeed in a globalised world.

 

Europe must navigate such troubled waters. How to compete within a globalized economy whilst guaranteeing and improving its democratic socio-economic model? How to evolve in the context of slow economic growth? How to ensure smooth societal transitions brought by digitalisation, the changing nature of work and the development of cleaner energy?

 

With the upcoming European elections and Brexit, now is the most opportune time to take stock of where Europe stands in the world, of where opportunities lie and reform impediments making Europe lag behind.

 

Business leaders will engage with policy-makers and civil society to provoke meaningful discussions looking into the positive impact of business on society. Business plays an essential role in finding solutions to key issues shaping the future of the continent. Together we will envisage how Europe should progress within the next 5 years setting the next steps towards a stronger Europe.

 

The European Business Summit is a unique debating and networking platform where key figures from an array of sectors meet to discuss current global trends and challenges and their effect on Europe. With 200 high-level speakers, 50 interactive debates and exclusive networking opportunities, EBS has become a landmark event in Brussels attracting 2000 attendees each year.
