ABOUT EBS

Created 20 years ago, the European Business Summit has gone from strength to strength becoming a prestigious 2-day event, attended by high-level participants from Europe and beyond.

WHO WE ARE

The European Business Summits is a renowned organisation that creates and supports networking and debating events in Brussels, including its biggest and most prestigious event – the annual European Business Summit. Our main goal is to bring business and politics together and to stimulate thinking on the most challenging European issues. Through its events and publications, EBS delivers an inspired and informed contribution to policy-making in Europe. EBS is proud to acknowledge the High Patronage of His Majesty the King of the Belgians, as well as the Patronage of Mrs Ursula Von der Leyen,  President of the European Commission, and the Patronage of Mrs Hadja Lahbib, Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Affairs and Foreign Trade and the Federal Cultural Institutions.

OUR MISSION


Our mission is twofold: we aim to bring politics and business together to provide them with an opportunity to debate and pursue their common goals, by giving a voice to both sides, and to provide the European institutions with a platform to highlight their top priorities and accelerate the development of new pieces of legislation through discussions with a variety of European actors and stakeholders.

EBS ANNUAL SUMMIT


The annual European Business Summit is one of the most far-reaching and influential debating and networking platforms in Europe, held annually at the Egmont Palace, Brussels. This event attracts over 2,000 participants and 250 high-level speakers. The European Business Summit gives business representatives the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with key EU decision-makers and to demonstrate that business can play a key role in the development of solutions to the most pressing issues in Europe.

EBS 2023

Titled “the 2024-2029 EU Agenda: Strong Business for a Stronger Europe”, the European Business Summit will aim at presenting a united response to the several challenges Europe is called to face, in an era of increased global competition. Faced with the challenges of the climate crisis, lagging competitiveness and strategic vulnerabilities in supply chains, the 2023 edition of EBS will reinforce the value of public-private partnerships to foster resilience; building stronger together is the key to ensuring that Europe will remain a global leader and a prosperous economy for years to come.
