The main venue is SQUARE Convention Centre (located right next to the central train station in the city centre). In addition, the European Committee of the Regions will host a set of sessions in their premises. Various event partners will also organise sessions in the regional representations and other venues around the city. Check the programme for details.
More than 6000 participants are expected participate in the #EURegionsWeek. They will represent local, regional, national and European decision-makers and experts from industry, academia, as well as associations.
The programme offers plenty of opportunities to meet and discuss with peer and experts from all across Europe and beyond in workshops, participatory labs, talks, and Q&A sessions. Moreover, an exhibition with concrete and inspiration case examples and additional opportunities to build new contacts is open during the entire event.
