The Challenge of Change

The event in a nutshell

The EBF Conference is the largest economic and business conference of the Netherlands and attracts around 600 participants each year including students, academics, alumni and business participants. The EBF Conference consists of two days, each with its own distinctive character. The first day will have an academic character, whereas the second day will be the traditional conference day.

Currently, the organisation of the EBF Conference 2020 is working hard on providing you once again with an unforgettable experience!

This year's theme is: The Challenge of Change: how to deal with the increasing speed of change.
