Hi, do you remember when I was posting an article about the European Parliament of Enterprises of 2008? Where I had been as a member of European enterprises.
It’s coming soon again. When? 18th of October, 2012.
Contact your chamber of commerce and register your company. I’m not really sure when is the application deadline for each country however, it’s just a reminder.
by organizer: “For the “European Parliament of Enterprises” EUROCHAMBRES brings together over 750 business men and women, coming from 45 European countries who get a chance to ‘become’ Members of the European Parliament for one day, debating and voting on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate.”

good luck with the application
It has been already 4 years since I have been chosen to represent Czech Republic as the entrepreneur ( 20 in total) in EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2008. It allowed businessmen and businesswomen to become Members of the European Parliament for one day, debate and vote on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate. If you are an entrepreneur one of the EU country and would like to rise your hand and say your opinion in the Hemicycle infront of 750 fellows, send a request to your chamber of commerce. The next event is going to take a place in Brussels during the autumn, 2012.
One of the most important matter for this event is networking and find potential customer or even to start new project! It’s not a vacation or politics its about your company, your deal!
PS: Yes, I did shake with hand of Jose Manuel Barrosso 🙂
