Poland & CEE Retail Summit 2024 - 15th edition
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre, Warsaw
9-10 April 2024
Ladies and Gentlemen!
I am delighted to share some exciting news about the upcoming 2024 edition of the Poland & CEE Retail Summit. We have some fantastic developments in store for you! In addition to our well-established Retail Summit, which attracted over 2,000 attendees and featured 249 speakers in its 14th edition in 2023, we are thrilled to announce the addition of the CEE eRetail Congress and the European Circular Retail Congress. These events, also organized in collaboration with the European Circular Retail Foundation, will provide a unique and valuable experience for all attendees, with a specific focus on sustainability, digitization, strategies, retail-supplier collaboration, and supply chain.
We are committed to delivering an extraordinary gathering that combines the best of all three events, featuring insightful discussions led by industry-leading speakers carefully selected from the crème de la crème of the Polish and CEE retail industry. We are proud to bring together over 300 industry-leading speakers from the top tier of the Polish and CEE retail industry.
To ensure the success of such a significant event, careful preparation is crucial. As part of this, we have planned a series of smaller pre-conference events leading up to the grand summit, scheduled for April 9-10, 2024. These events will set the stage for an extraordinary gathering, bringing together influential CEOs, esteemed dignitaries, and notable figures from the retail industry.
Former Polish President Lech Wałęsa graces the 5th CEO Pre-Conference Dinner, Retail Summit 2024, igniting an evening of inspiration and collaboration among influential CEOs and industry luminaries
The journey has already begun with a kick-off pre-conference dinner held on May 18, 2023. The presence of former Polish President Lech Wałęsa, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a key figure in the Solidarity movement, added an extra touch of prestige to the evening. His remarkable leadership and invaluable experience served as an inspiration to all attendees, highlighting the profound impact of his contributions to Poland and the world.
As we look ahead, we are eagerly anticipating a new series of dinners after the summer break. These gatherings will bring together influential industry leaders who will shape the future of retail, setting the stage for the Poland & CEE Retail Summit 2024. In September, we will kick off with four exclusive dinners for Solution Providers, focusing on key areas of sustainability, eCommerce, supply chain, and digital innovation. Following these initial dinners in September, we will continue in the following months hosting a series of additional dinners tailored for professionals from various sectors of the retail and consumer goods industry.
I am thrilled to extend a personal invitation for you to join us at these pre-conference events, as well as at the highly anticipated 14th edition of the Poland & CEE Retail Summit on April 9-10, 2024.
Together, let's connect hearts and minds to shape the retail industry!
