First Legal Forum EU – Eastern Partnership

Warsaw Marriott Hotel

The current situation on the international market clearly shows how important dialogue is. We have been planning our Forum for a year, but the war in Ukraine, which took the whole world by surprise, caused that the perspective of cooperation between the Eastern countries and the EU has completely changed. We were supposed to discuss trade in the context of development and post-pandemic economic rupture, but in the current situation we want to dedicate our meeting to the chances of reactivating economic exchange in the new reality.

The Forum will take place on May 26-27, 2022, in Warsaw (Warsaw Marriott Hotel). Ninety speakers and three hundred participants from more than thirty countries will take part in the two-day forum.

During the forum, invited guests and experts will discuss: 

What the position is of Ukrainian companies in the context of cooperation with foreign partners Is cooperation with Eastern partners effective and ethical in a war? How do the sanctions imposed on Russia and Belarus affect the international market? How to find new partners and suppliers? The essence of the mechanisms of legal regulation in the conditions of martial law and the economic crisis, etc.

Who will participate 

The Forum will bring together partners of the largest law firms from Europe and Asia, renowned lawyers operating on the international market, heads of in-house legal departments, as well as business development experts, specialists in legal PR and marketing, and advisors in finance or rankings.

Why it is worth participating

On 26th and 27th of May Warsaw will become the heart of legal market and international dialogue! Inspiring speeches, interesting discussions, networking and B2B meetings and a large dose of practical knowledge that will help you find your way in the new economic reality and establish relationships with foreign partners are waiting for you.

You cannot miss it, too!

Internal Audit Service Conference 2022

In-person (Brussels, Belgium), and Online

The last two years have been marked by huge challenges for individuals, societies, companies and public institutions as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, and the resulting geopolitical and economic climate.

Across the European Union, public and private bodies are already investing in an unprecedented recovery effort. Citizens, investors and other stakeholders have high expectations that this investment will deliver the right recovery – one that promotes our green and climate ambitions, that ensures Europe’s place as a digital leader, that is grounded in our fundamental values and, in a context of rising energy and food prices, does not leave anyone behind.

The European Commission’s conference aims to look at the role internal auditors can play as trusted advisors supporting organisations to deliver their recovery objectives in this dynamic and challenging environment.

They will firstly look at the evolving expectations of citizens and their representatives, civil society, investors and other stakeholders towards public and private organisations, given the huge scale of investment in the recovery effort and the renewed focus on sustainability, social responsibility and the digital transition. As President von der Leyen stressed in her 2021 State of the Union speech, it is crucial that “every euro and every cent is spent for its proper purpose and in line with the rule of law principles”.

They will ask what this implies in terms of the accountability of organisations as concerns the results and impact of their actions, and how their performance is tracked and reported. The conference will also address the growing link between resource allocation and performance in the European Union budget, with a particular focus on the most recent generation of EU funding programmes, including the landmark Recovery and Resilience Facility.

They will then go on to explore what this means in practice for the day-to-day work of internal auditors, as trusted advisors to their organisations. What do our organisations expect from us in this new, fast-moving and ever more complex environment? How do we adjust our priorities and working methods to meet these emerging needs? How do we better reflect the focus on sustainability and corporate responsibility and support strong accountability structures when it comes to the use of resources and reporting on performance?

Commissioner Didier Reynders has kindly agreed to open the conference, and other high-level speakers include senior representatives of the European Parliament, the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Court of Auditors, as well as the Institute of Internal Auditors, the Committee of Sponsoring Organisations and the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board.

Due to ongoing public health measures, and to ensure the safety of all, a limited audience in Brussels may only be welcome, but the conference will be available in a live interactive on-line format allowing those joining digitally to engage fully.

The annual conference of the European Commission’s Internal Audit Service will take place on 31 May 2022 at Alcide De Gasperi Room, Charlemagne Building 170, Rue de la Loi 1000 Brussels, Belgium.

Airmic Conference 2022

ACC Liverpool, England

The world has entered a period of intense turbulence. Climate change, disease, ageing populations, technological disruptions, and the war in Ukraine – viewed by many as a turning point in the history of Europe – are all “once in a generation” events, each of which have radically changed the risk landscape introducing new risks, more risks, and different types of risk. Whilst changes stimulated by this turbulence are here to stay, the full scope of their effects remains uncertain.

Airmic 2022 in Liverpool provides a unique opportunity to connect, consider strategic questions, develop ideas for the challenges we face, and with our peers, partners, exhibitors and experts consider how we can move forward together. Join us and be part of the journey.

This summer we head up north to the ACC Liverpool, situated in the beautiful location of St Albert Docks. Join us for three days of face to face networking, as we discuss ideas, learn from each other and hear from the experts. This is a key event in the risk management calendar. Join us, our Partners and exhibitors as we emerge from a pre-pandemic world and we all move forward together.

Infosecurity Europe

ExCeL London

Cybercrime and cyber-criminals haven’t been deterred by the pandemic, and nor should we. As (COVID-19) infection rates soared across the globe, so too did cyber-attacks.

The stakes have never been higher, but neither has the drive and determination to defend. The cybersecurity industry’s collective resolve to build resilience and strengthen security posture is admirable, but the plight continues. Our work is never done.

Infosecurity Europe is the meeting place for the industry’s finest minds. Delivering expertise and knowledge from the world’s most celebrated cybersecurity experts, connecting practitioners with suppliers to find true solutions, and bringing together industry peers to network, share and ultimately, grow stronger and more resilient together.
