27.03.2017 7th ABSL Conference with a prestigious award! The MP Power Awards statuette for the Congress of the Year 2016 has been granted to the 7th edition of the ABSL Conference. The annual event gathers representatives of the business services sector, its stakeholders, economists and government representatives. The awarded seventh edition of the ABSL Conference took place in June last year in Katowice, under the tagline “Transforming Ourselves. Changing the World.”, and was realised with the help of Kraków-based agency – Event-Factory. In the modern interiors of the International Congress Centre and the Silesian Museum, the Conference gathered over 1000 people, including nearly 100 speakers, as well as the special guest – Dr. Condoleezza Rice, 66th US Secretary of State. The 8th edition of the ABSL Conference, created in partnership with the City of Łódź, will take place on June 12-14th, 2017. Detailed agenda and info on the special guest will be revealed in the second half of April, but the organisers promise many changes and surprises that will await the guests. This year’s edition will tie strongly to change, as it’s the most prominent accent in the economics and politics: we witness changes that can lead to a new order and to the expansion of innovations, which more and more strongly define the character of the business services sector and other parts of the economy. The annual ABSL Conference is an amazing platform for dialogue between the representatives of business, global and local politics, analysts and opinion leaders. This year, our discussions will be divided into three main topics: changes in business, future markets and new competences – says Marek Grodziński, VP ABSL, Head of European Delivery Centers in Capgemini.
