Project : SME Assembly
As project managers for the European Commission's SME Assembly, LOW has been closely involved with the development of the annual event and its conference programme.
Using our policy and event management specialists, we managed all aspects of the programme and event. From supervising the logistics of more than 500 senior delegates to designing the entire event, we wrote
the conference programme, selected high-level speakers and moderators, created innovative and successful new formats such as ‘The Big Debate’ which introduced greater delegate participation into the conference, and introduced a series of small, informal, ‘round table’ workshops where delegates could swap best practice. The Assembly is exceptionally well-received each year (the 2016 event received 95% positive feedback), and has become the go-to event for policy-makers, business leaders and the SME community alike.
Following its inaugural success in Cyprus (2012), Vilnius (2013), Naples (2014), Luxembourg (2015), Bratislava (2016) and Tallinn (2017); We are currently preparing the 2018 SME Assembly which will take place in Graz, Austria.
