European Consumer Summit
Shaping the Consumer Policy of the Future
Brussels, 1-2 June 2015
The European Consumer Summit is an annual forum gathering key European and international policy-makers and stakeholders, including representatives from the European Parliament, governments and national authorities, consumer organisations, academia and business.
