Business Review brings you an event that discusses environmental protection with a focus on waste management through a different approach. For years, all actors involved - national and local authorities, packaging manufacturers, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in the market, lightbulbs or batteries, waste management outsourcers/third-party entities, sanitation companies, recycling companies etc. - have been discussing awareness of the system’s shortcomings in Romania.
At the “Environmental and Sustainability Summit”, we’re taking a solution-oriented approach, focusing instead on the people and existing implemented projects that offer answers and on partners that have made an impact. Come join us for a discussion featuring concrete examples with star players who are truly dedicated to protecting the environment. Through Keynotes, Case Studies and Presentations, they will share their learnings with a “Can Do” attitude.
Projects and best practices that have been implemented successfully by NGOs and companies.

Focus on Blockchain is an industry event committed to bring together tech driven companies, entrepreneurs, crypto and blockchain aficionados and investors to explore the wealth of opportunities that blockchain unveils, learn about its use cases and understand how they can apply technology to better the world. Participants and speakers altogether are open to share ideas and forge meaningful relationships. Everyone can reach out to everyone and we make sure that happens with the help of technology and not only. The event recreates a casual and relaxed atmosphere, with lots of engagement aside from the content that makes everyone feel good. People show up as who they really are, they come with their failures and successes, they come with their fears and challenges and go home feeling something had changed and they are part of the change. We hear you and we want everybody to hear you: live feedback is welcome and encouraged, this way speakers become better and we do our jobs better at serving you.
