2015 SME Assembly in Luxembourg
The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs is delighted to announce that the 2015 SME Assembly will take place in Luxembourg from 18 to 20 November 2015. The Assembly will be organised together with the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council as an interactive and participatory event.
Following the tremendous success of the last three conferences, the 2015 SME Assembly is set to be yet again the most important European event for SME policy. This year we are inviting you to co-create SME policy and to find new ways of working together, to ensure effective support for entrepreneurs. To this end we are inviting a wealth of partners, old and new, from the world of business, academia, policy-making and media. We will be honoured by the presence of HRH The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, in particular for an interactive discussion about women’s entrepreneurship.
For the first time, the event will host the final selection of ten entrepreneurs from across Europe who will then have the honour to present their world-changing ideas at TEDx Binnenhof 2016 "Made in Europe" in The Hague (see www.tedxbinnenhof.com for further information).
Furthermore, we are proud to say that we are teaming up with the start-up community in Luxembourg who will hold a Startup Weekend right after the formal end of the SME Assembly; for those interested there will be a possibility to experience entrepreneurship in action.
As with previous years, the SME Assembly will be the focus of the European SME Week. Another highlight will be the European Enterprise Promotion Awards Ceremony - which over the years attracted over 2800 entries - to recognise excellence in supporting entrepreneurs across the continent.
During the Assembly the 2015 SME Performance Review and Annual Report on European SMEs will be presented.
