FMCG Open University on the Trade Campus

(The latest on the FMCG market from a retailer, supplier, HoReCa and services perspective)

Term time: 23-27 September 2024
University town: Tapolca
Trade Campus: Hunguest Hotel Pelion

We are coming together for a week this September, listening to the experiences and ideas of others and ref lecting on our future opportunities and challenges. We are going to take a lot of courses during the week, but of course we will also have school get-togethers, university balls and cellar parties. We are going to invite lots of professors, and those participants who apply will be allowed to take exams, so that they can return home with a proper diploma, proving that they have completed this year’s course…

Soon we can say that we have been living in an ever-changing environment for four years, with growing challenges and unexpected events, experiencing economic changes, trying to comply with a modified regulatory environment, amidst changing customer and consumer trends. The sensitivity and strategic role of the FMCG market don’t need to be demonstrated, but it is necessary to monitor the changes and prepare for future events in good time. All these changes require more and more information from both inside and outside. This is why every September we gather for five days at the Business Days conference, with invited speakers, roundtable participants, discussing old themes and new ones, in Hungarian and English, in consumer, supplier, retailer, wholesaler and service provider circles.

Just like in the past, we have chosen a special theme for this year’s conference, which has never been used before. This time we are studying at the FMCG Open University on the Trade Campus, to keep our “science” up-to-date and to give good answers to the challenges of today. Our goal is to spend a really valuable week together, in a professional environment.

Everyone is welcome!
