AmCham CEE Investment Conference: How transforming Europe can drive your global growth

2020-11-10 14:00:00
Company: Amcham
Address: Webex event- a link will be sent to registered participants
Business in Europe was already evolving rapidly. Nearly three decades of expanded markets and commercial exchange had raised the level of competition and competence in the new member states to unprecedented levels. Covid could turn that evolution into a commercial revolution. In three video panel presentations and discussions, companies that have already identified the strategic opportunities in the regions will outline why these investments will drive their global business success in the first half of the 21st century.

Will the CEE region become the platform for AI in Europe?

What is the next stage in the rise of the region as a major tourist destination?

How is the region increasing its high-tech, sustainable manufacturing?
