The SME Assembly 2020 is getting closer and still accepting registrations. Make sure that you don’t miss out on the online edition taking place from 16-17 November and register now to secure your place.

This year’s programme promises to be high-level and diverse with many famous faces such as Peter Altmaier, Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy in Germany, and Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Market, and renowned economist Maja Göpel.

Here on the News Portal we have already introduced our distinguished 2020 Schumpeter lecturer Professor Joseph Stiglitz, and looked into the joint EEPA and European Small and Mid-Caps Awards ceremony. But what else is on the programme?

There’s truly something for everyone in the range of policy workshops and masterclasses that will be on offer, with topics ranging from SME’s leading the EU’s digital sovereignty to discussions about Women Entrepreneurs in times of COVID. As always, each session will see leading European experts convene to discuss the matters at hand from a specialist perspective. The highly anticipated Youth Essay Competition finals where our top three finalists will compete for YOUR vote will also be taking place LIVE as part of this year’s programme.

The SME Assembly 2020 will also offer networking opportunities, to ensure that the valuable conversations between delegates and the connections built throughout our Promoting Enterprise community are not lost. Make sure to register as soon as possible to secure your chance to network in dedicated online spaces and sessions during this year’s Assembly.

In addition to traditional networking there will also be ‘Virtual Worlds’ available for a small number of Assembly attendees to experience an innovative and immersive networking session. These sessions will transport participants to other worlds and demonstrate how SMEs can use ground breaking opportunities that the digital and technology expanse offers for economic growth and resilience. In order to secure one of these additional limited places first, register for the SME Assembly event, then contact the SME Assembly Secretariat with VR Event as the subject line to register your interest. Please note that only registered delegates will be able to secure spots for the VR sessions.
