Overview Annual 2020 Online Conference

2020 still has positive things in store for us!

Nothing seems to be the same in 2020, but we can guarantee that one yearly highlight will be unforgettable: Afera’s 1st Online Annual Conference!

Leaders and experts from all segments of the industry value chain will learn, discuss and meet in an online environment. As always, the programme will be packed with inspiration and information.

This year’s programme is centered around the key industry topic of sustainability and circularity. The organising committee prepares a dynamic programme with the response from senior management and sustainability experts from a large number of Afera members on the dedicated Survey earlier this year. It enables us to develop a programme that covers all angles of the complex topic of industry sustainability in close collaboration with the WG-sustainability.

Costs:

This years online annual programme is available for all Afera members without any participation fee.  This means that you can also invite your company colleagues to enjoy one or more of the six sessions to be inspired, to learn and to engage in the association network.
