Baltic Development Forum Summit 2010
Vilnius 1-2 June 2010
For the first time Lithuania and Vilnius will be hosting the Summit of the Baltic Development Forum. It will take place on 1-2 June 2010 in Vilnius. The annual Forum of decision-makers, business, academia and media from the Baltic Sea Region and beyond will be organized back-to-back with the Prime Ministers’ Summit that will mark the end of the Lithuanian Presidency of Council of the Baltic Sea States. Beyond doubts, these two events will transform Vilnius, the European Capital of Culture’2009, into the “Baltic Sea Region Capital’2010”.
The Lithuanian Government and the Municipality of Vilnius are looking forward to welcoming participants with traditional Lithuanian hospitality and to ensure highest organizational standards. The Baltic Development Forum Summit will be held in the premises of the Lithuanian Exhibition and Convention Centre LITEXPO, having a good record of hosting large international conferences and meetings.
The highly relevant agenda of the Summit will highlight questions related to sustainable economic growth, competitiveness, jobs creation and financial recovery. Energy and climate change, economic relations with the Eastern neighbors and Northern Dimension will be the part of the Summit programme that will also include the most pressing issues that are on the agenda of the business, including innovation, research and development and transport.
The Summit’s exhibition and networking village will be an improved venue for cross-country, cross-sector and cross-level encounters, discussions and debates. We will continue with new initiatives that will create an even more dynamic and creative atmosphere in Networking Village where many different events and activities will be taking place. Summit participants will be invited to join parallel sessions, interviews, discussions, company briefings, book presentations and other activities in Networking Village, which will be open during the both days of the Summit.
