Business Forum cancelled
Our 2020 Business Forum has been cancelled because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Bank’s shareholders are discussing the best course of action for the Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors.
Developing the Future: Inspiring private sector investment for sustainable development
Join us for EBRD’s 29th Annual Meeting and Business Forum which will be held on 13-14 May 2020 in London, UK. This key event in the yearly cycle of the Bank – combining the reunion of the Board of Governors (the EBRD’s highest decision-making body) and the Business Forum – returns to the UK capital after three years of being held in the EBRD’s regions of operations (Cyprus in 2017, Jordan in 2018, and Sarajevo in 2019).
The theme of the 2020 Business Forum is Developing the Future: Inspiring private sector investment for sustainable development. It offers guests a dynamic programme of dialogue and discussion on wide-ranging issues that shape our future, as well as a series of special associated events and dedicated business sessions on investment prospects across EBRD’s regions of operations.
Importantly, the Business Forum also provides extensive networking opportunities as it attracts an international gathering of more than 2,000 guests, ranging from leading financial and corporate executives and entrepreneurs to high-level government officials, representatives of civil society and the international media.
