2023 European Leadership Conference

Date: Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at 6:30 AM through Wednesday, October 18, 2023 at 10:00 AM

Venue: INNSiDE Barcelona Apolo, Barcelona


The aim of the European Leadership Conference (ELC) is to bring together all incoming Presidents, Chapter Board members, Regional Council members and Experts.

If you are a leader in your chapter, join us in Barcelona for a welcome dinner and full day program. The ELC is an ideal time to share best practices, connect and plan for your Chapter’s coming fiscal year. Attending the ELC will help your chapter align with the region and connect with regional chapters while learning about how you can find resources, what subsidies are available and sharing best practices.


  • Tuesday, 17th October - Arrivals, (afternoon meeting 1-5pm for Regional Experts & Council) Welcome dinner for all registrants starting from 6PM
  • Wednesday, 18th October - Full day program from 9 to 5PM

The event will be held right before EO Unlimited in Barcelona (October 18-20), 2.5 days full of inspirational learning. For more information and to register for EO Unlimited please visit:

Here’s what you should expect from ELC:

ELC is a unique team-building experience with your whole board. As a direct follow to GLC, ELC lets you keep the momentum and prepare for your role during the coming year. However, while GLC is the basic leadership training, ELC translates your new knowledge into action plans for your chapter.

During ELC, you’ll get to know the European EO team you’ll exchange best practices with during the year. It is a great time to share experiences (no need to reinvent the wheel!), coordinate projects together (i.e. speaker tours), compare budgets, readjust agendas and more. 

After ELC, you’ll be ready to go back to your chapter prepared with the relevant knowledge and tools! But ELC isn’t just practical, we’ll have a lot of fun - the EO way!

The ELC event participation is free, however the travel and accommodation fees are not covered.
