EuroCommerce, which represents the retail and wholesale trade in Europe, has announced details of a forthcoming exhibition, Smart, Sustainable and Skilled: the future of EU retail and wholesale, to mark the 30th anniversary of its foundation.
Taking place at Concert Noble in Brussels on 20 June, more than 15 exhibitors from across the retail landscape will be in attendance, who will showcase projects in sustainability, digitalisation and skills development.
The event will kick off with an opening cocktail reception, following which European Commissioner for the Internal Market, Thierry Breton, will formally open proceedings alongside EuroCommerce President Juan Manuel Morales.
'A Special Year'
Commenting on the landmark anniversary for EuroCommerce, Christel Delberghe, director general, said, "This year is rather a special one as we commemorate both 30 years of EuroCommerce and 30 years of the Single Market.
"I am looking forward to an interesting year, marking these anniversaries at celebrations together with policymakers, stakeholders and members, while reflecting on the essential role that the Single Market plays in maintaining competitiveness of our sector, for citizens, and for the EU economy as a whole."
