TRANSLOG Connect Congress is Central and Eastern Europe’s leading B2B networking event for transportation, logistics and supply chain management professionals taking place annually in November, in Budapest. The event is not only the most influential regional congress for executives but also an essential event in terms of new business relations.

During the eight years of its existence, it has also started to build a regional, cross-industrial business community of professionals, who are seeking to expand knowledge base, strengthen and create partnerships and explore the most innovative logistics solutions available on the market. Every year, the Congress accommodates the award ceremony of the CEE Logistics and Supply Chain Management Excellence Award where the winners receive honourable recognition by the industry.

How to get in the spotlight?

Start-ups, small and big organizations, manufacturers, retailers or logistics solution providers with a customer are all welcome to apply for the award with a project that was executed in one of the countries within the CEE region (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia and Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). The application should contain the description of the innovative method or technique, the aims of the implemented project, the stages of the development and implementation, the achieved results as well as an executive summary.

On the first day of the regional event, on the 13th of November, the awarded solutions will be announced and crowned with an international recognition. Both category winners will have the unique chance to put their most outstanding products, services or best practices in the spotlight, by presenting their projects to an audience of over 500 logistics and supply chain management professionals and senior decision makers from over 30 countries, aiming to raise their visibility on the professional horizon. The organiser – TEG The Events Group – is supporting the winning projects with additional PR activities via more than 40 local and international media partners as well as associations highlighting the best innovations in each category.
