Who should attend?
For global firms with operations in western Europe or North America, the 2-day Awards Gala and Summit is a very efficient way to meet key decision makers in CEE’s Shared Services and BPO eco-system. Despite more than 400 global corporations already operating shared services or outsourcing centers in CEE, the sector continues to attract investment from world-class firms. Yet the decisions to be made are manifold: location, subsidies/grants, staffing, accounting, tax, and legal issues. Who to work with – and who not to work with.
In addition to officials from more than 15 cities across central Europe, our guests are a font of knowledge about the sector - and can answer key questions, and connect you to the right people within the shared services sectors. Awards Gala and Summit attendees will include more than 100 top executives from currently-operating business services centers in CEE.
In addition to the one day Summit and Awards Gala, many executives will arrive at least one day in advance for additional meetings, including our 2nd annual „HR in SSC Summit” (31st January).
For foreign guest attendees of the Awards Gala and Summit, our team will offer special (complimentary; and confidential) assistance in helping you set up meetings. Please call directly to Thom Barnhardt (+48-508-143-963) if you’d like some guidance concerning additional meetings - with city officials, currently-operating shared services executives, or professional service providers.
