European Cities Marketing organised its Annual Conference & General Assembly in Belgrade on 11th – 14th June. This event followed the City Break exhibition, which took place on 9th and 10th June, also in Belgrade.
Working Groups and Knowledge Groups took place on Friday, as well as the ECM General Assembly, which were open to the members to adopt the new ECM strategy. Elections of the Board members were also part of the General Assembly’s programme in Belgrade. “The ECM meetings are one of the crucial elements for good functioning of our association. For our members it is the occasion to meet and share expertise during so called “Working Group meetings” where the participants focus their effort on a specific task or project. These structured meetings with an interactive method of working enable ECM to develop its activities in a very dynamic way”, explains Frank Magee, the president of European Cities Marketing.
The whole team of Belgrade Tourist Organisation ensured that everybody enjoyed their stay, by providing an exciting social programme, which included a tour of Belgrade or an excursion to its neighbour city Novi Sad. “I was delighted to have the possibility of hosting the ECM Annual Conference and General Assembly here in Belgrade. It is very important for us to welcome people from different European cities and to exchange experience and knowledge that is often very diverse and therefore extremely rich. I am glad that we had this opportunity and I express my kindest thanks to all who believed in us.” expressed Olivera Lazovic, director of Belgrade Tourist Organization.
