European Business Summit is a well-known organization which creates and supports networking and debating events in Brussels, including our biggest and most prestigious event - the annual European Business Summit. Our principal goal is to bring business and politics together and stimulate thinking on the most challenging European issues. Through its events and publications, EBS delivers an inspired and informed contribution to policy-making in Europe. EBS is supported by the FEB (Federation of Enterprises in Belgium) and BUSINESSEUROPE. The EBS is also proud to acknowledge the high patronage of His Majesty the King of the Belgians.
Our mission is twofold: we aim to bring politics and business together in order to provide them with an opportunity to debate and pursue their common goals, giving a voice to all sides of the debate. The other priority of EBS is to provide the European institutions with a platform where they can place their top priorities in the spotlight and advance the development of new pieces of legislation through discussion with a variety of actors and stakeholders.
The annual European Business Summit is one of the most far-reaching and influential debating and networking platforms in Europe, held annually at the Egmont Palace, Brussels. It attracts over 2,000 participants and 250 high-level speakers. EBS gives business representatives the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with key EU decision-makers and demonstrate that business can play a key part in developing solutions to the most pressing issues in Europe.
Apart from the European Business Summit every year we organise a Back from Davos event following the annual World Economic Forum in Davos. Moreover, EBS supports topical and relevant 1-day summits that are held throughout the year, including Think Digital, Energy Policy Summit, European Defence Industry Summit and Bespoke events.
