Traditional EuRA International Relocation Congress took place in Warsaw at the end of April. After Malta last year and eighteen years after the first edition in Barcelona, over 600 delegates were presents in Poland on this occasion.
The event has become a landmark in the relocation calendar and is the biggest event of its kind in Europe. This is a great opportunity for EuRA Members to network, attend the EuRA education programmes, listen to some great speakers and enjoy some fantastic social events.
This year's program included different modules. Throughout these four days, the participants were able to exchange their points of view concerning immigration, global mobility, interculturality or even social media. Some specific topics were discussed such as the impact of Brexit on the industry, but also emerging markets in Asia and Africa.
As each year, GR Mobility group of companies has actively participated to all four days of congress, under the leadership of his CEO and owner, Pierre Jéronimo. Newly elected Board Member of the European Relocation Association as Executive Member for Central Region, Pierre Jéronimo is one of the mobility pioneers in Central & Eastern Europe. He started in the relocation industry 21 years ago.
EuRA, the European Relocation Association, was formed in 1998 with the aim of promoting the benefits of professionally managed relocation and mobility services to companies with globally mobile employees.
The relocation process is one of the most difficult times for an employee or family involving intense change on a work, life and cultural basis. Professional relocation suppliers not only save companies money, in that they have a far greater ability to accurately negotiate expenses on behalf of their clients, they also provide a seamless transition for the employee from one role to the next, promoting effective and swift productivity for the company.
The impact on families is also profound. Children being globally transitioned face enormous challenges and relocation companies work with the family, schools and employer to smooth this process.
The next EuRA appointment will be in Chicago, on September 28th. Earlier, a webinar programm « Introduction to the EuRA Global Quality Seal » will be held at the end of this month, between 24 and 26 May.
Finally, it should also be noted that the date and venue of the next EuRA International Relocation Congress have been chosen. The conference will be held in Dubrovnik (Croatia) from Thuesday 24 to Friday 27 April, 2018.
