About ABSL digital forum 2020


A powerful online meeting presenting the latest data from „Business Services Sector in Poland” report to inspire discussions on key challenges for business and the economy in the face of crisis.


If the past 40 years were about efficiency, the next 40 will be about resiliency, writes Rana Foroohar, Global Business Columnist at the Financial Times. At ABSL, we also believe that resilience is the foundation of business in a post-pandemic reality.


The ABSL Forum “Business Resilience in the Face of Crisis” offers an opportunity to find the latest data and insights from the business services sector in Poland. The data will be presented in the highly anticipated „Business Services Sector in Poland” report, which will premiere during the event.


Together, we will explore new ways to maintain business operations and expand the capacity of business models to a degree never experienced before.
