International Summits

Uncensored discussion, unequaled intelligence

Euroconsult has established an outstanding reputation for creating and organizing summits and executive training programs.

Drawing on our expert knowledge and industry connections, we organize summits that bring together our international executive client base. The format always includes a top-level conference featuring senior executive speakers and delegates who meet to benchmark, exchange viewpoints on issues that the industry is facing and strike major deals. Summit venues are chosen to create a personal setting which lends itself to the networking and business meetings which are an integral part of each event.
