The 2018 Interel Global Partnership EMEA Summit

March 26 - 27, 2018

Advancing Interests in a New Europe

#AdvancingInterests

Please join us for the 2018 Interel Global Partnership EMEA Summit: Advancing Interests in a New Europe in Athens, Greece. Hosted by Interel and Interel Global Partnership (IGP) Greek Partner, Rollerdeck Associates, the program explores some of the most pressing issues in European politics and public affairs. Rollerdeck is also adding to the program by including local networking opportunities. As with the IGP Summit of last year, this event is an opportunity for IGP partners to join colleagues to discuss the drivers shaping the European public affairs landscape and share perspectives on advancing interests through innovation and impact. This year’s EMEA Summit will bring together IGP partners from EMEA and around the world, local executives and policy makers, and thought leaders from the evolving field of global public affairs and government relations.

For more information on accommodations, please reach out to Melissa Miot at Melissa.Miot@interelgroup.com, or book your stay directly through The Hilton Athens special IGP EMEA Summit portal

If you are unable to attend the EMEA Summit this year, we hope to see you at the 5th Annual IGP Summit May 30 – June 1 in Brussels!

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
