ECR Europe is currently transitioning to a non-fee membership, model open to operators in the European consumer goods sector and to the national ECR organisations.
The European Leaders Forum will be the central platform for ECR Europe in the future.
The next European Leaders Forum will take place in Brussels in April 2014. There is an executive session (board level participants) on the afternoon of 29th and a general session on the morning of the 30th. The ECR Europe 2014 Awards will be presented on the evening of the 29th.
