EFBWW CONGRESS 2019 - VIENNA

WELCOME

Dear participant,
On behalf of the EFBWW it is a great pleasure and honour to welcome you at the EFBWW General Assembly, which will take on 7 and 8 November 2019 in Vienna. This time the EFBWW Congress will be held at an iconic building, also called the “Catamaran”, which is the head office of the Austrian trade union ÖGB and its industry federations.
The theme of the Congress is straightforward : “Our Europe: fair, sustainable and solidly united”. Indeed this slogan refers to the core principles of the EFBWW. The Congress is a unique opportunity to meet, exchange and discuss our common challenges. In a rapid changing world, we need to identify our strategic vision for achieving a “Social Europe”.

The Congress will also feature three side-events on 6th November 2019.

Attending the two-day EFBWW Congress will give you the opportunity to learn more about the capital of Austria and its rich history, culture, art and gastronomy which will accompany you in every step.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing with you a memorable time in charming Vienna!

Dietmar Schäfers

EFBWW President
