More than 60 representatives from 30 American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams) across Europe attended the annual AmChams in Europe Best Practices Conference in Belgrade, Serbia on October 16-19, 2019. The purpose of the conference was to meet with the community, to exchange best practices, and to discuss relevant issues impacting AmChams and their members.
The focus of this year’s conference was the role and challenges of the AmChams in current as well as the Ready for the Future World. “I am extremely pleased and proud that AmChams and colleagues across the Europe and Eurasia are becoming more and more connected, and united. Knowledge exchange, overall collaboration and trust are in my opinion the only way to achieve sustainable future, peace and unity”, said Ajša Vodnik, Vice-Chair of the AmChams in Europe Conference.
Traditionally, the ACE community selected the European Best Practice of the Year. The winner of the 2019 Creative Network Award for the European best practice was AmCham Belgium with its innovative #MemberMonday social media campaign.
