V European Congress of Small and Medium-size Enterprises  
Place: Katowice
Date: 12.10. - 14.10.2015
Organiser and supporting organization: Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, BBC

The role of SME in global economy becomes more and more significant. Each year the European Congress of Small and Medium - Size Enterprises is organized in Poland, where we focus on practical character of running a business. The  V European Congress of Small and Medium - Size Enterprises will take place on 12th - 14th October 2015 in the International Conference Centre in Katowice - Poland.

The Congress is a discussion platform for the representatives of the SME sector and large companies, science, business environment institutions, local self - government and government administration. Estimated number of participants amounts to more than 5000 from 50 countries. The main theme of the event this year is “Science-Business-Self-government Together For Economy”. Congress will be hosted under Honorary Patronage of European Commission and High Patronage of European Parliament.

The motto of this year’s Congress is “Science - Business - Self - Government - TOGETHER FOR ECONOMY”. Cooperation of these three areas provides an opportunity to create innovative and competitive economy. Moreover, this year the program of the Congress will include themes which have been recognized as trouble spots: access to capital, education of personnel for economy, stable and friendly law - making system, international cooperation; but also topics which are often disregarded and omitted, e.g. entrepreneurship and disability. Additionally, other debates will also concern: women’s entrepreneurship, young people on the labor market and young entrepreneurs, renewable energy source, effective marketing communication. The challenge for European SME is internationalization of production. Therefore, during the V ECSME number of panels will be dedicated to international cooperation, as well as session of B2B meetings, on which we invite entrepreneurs across Europe.

During the Congress, experts in various areas will be available in the stands of the Business Expo Fair, where participants will have a chance to have business conversations or receive assistance in the area of running their business.
 
This event is organized by Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice together with Ministry of Economy, Polish Agency for Enterprise Development and Polish Chamber of Commerce.
