The 11th edition of the Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL) summit, that gathers business experts from all over the world, will take place at the Amber Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre in the coastal city of Gdańsk, northern Poland, on June 4-5, 2020.

During the summit, participants will present their visions of the future of a global economy based on the concept of sustainable development and its consequences for business.

The official partners of ABSL Summit 2020 are: the Pomorskie Provincial Government, the authorities of the Tri-City, Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot cities, as well as Invest in Pomerania, a regional non-profit initiative that supports foreign direct investment projects in Pomerania.

The agenda of the conference will include three thematic paths: people, business and technology, which, according to the ABSL Vice-President Janusz Dziurzyński, are to encourage service providers to think about changes in behavior and social attitudes. Speakers and experts will consider together how companies can meet expectations and ethical challenges related to sustainable development and the role of technology in reducing social inequalities.

The ABSL Summit is one of the largest business events in Central Europe. Each year, it gathers over a thousand participants, global business leaders, representatives of local and national authorities, as well as experts and scientists.
