It has already become a tradition that during spring and autumn the BSS industry meets at a number of important events and discusses the most important global, national and regional topics related to the modern business services.
We have already had The BSS Forum in Lublin, the ASPIRE conference in Krakow, the ABSL conference in Łódź, the fourth edition of the ITO & BPO Germany Forum in Berlin, and the next edition of SSON's annual Shared Services and Outsourcing Week in Manchester.
The above events were very interesting but they are over now. However, very interesting schedule of events is planned for September and October. Turn on the conference sense and add some important dates into your calendars so you do not miss the opportunity to share your knowledge, grow networking and build new business relationships with representatives of the BPO and SSC organizations.
The ones that look promising for September and early October are:
September 19th - V Green Light for BSS in Opole - annual conference organized in the City of Opole in Poland. The event summarizes the growth of BPO and SSC in Opole and focuses on regional and global trends of modern business services. This year the event is being organized for the first time in The BSS Tour series run by Pro Progressio. More details are available at http://www.bsstour.com/opole/
September 26th - 27th - II Polish Outsourcing Forum - for the second time Puls Biznesu is organizing a two day event in Warsaw (Poland). The practitioners and outsourcing experts will discuss the industry trends and outsourcing opportunities in Poland.

September 29th - October 1st - Lviv IT Arena – this is a unique event organized in Lviv (Ukraine), for several years the conference attracts Ukrainian and Global IT experts.

October 9th – 11th - The 11th Eastern European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week. For the eleventh time, this time in Budapest (Hungary), SSON is organizing its annual Shared Services and Outsourcing conference in the CEE region. Excellent event, excellent speakers, including representatives of Shared Service Centres from Poland. For more information, visit https://www.easterneuropesharedservices.com/.
There are many more events organized in coming weeks, some are cyclical, others are organized for the first time, so before you spend money it is worth checking who is the organizer and do they have the experience in the outsourcing and business services industry. If you want to get my opinion about BSS industry events, feel free to call or e-mail me at any time. I will certainly be present at some of them so there will be an opportunity to meet in person.
That’s it for today ... I look forward to the conference in Opole - this year it will be very interesting
