8-10 November, Sofia, Bulgaria

The Central Election Commission of Bulgaria and the ACEEEO Secretariat co-organized a successful General Assembly meeting and the Annual Conference in Sofia entitled ‘Conscious voters in the digital age’.

140 electoral professionals from 35 countries accepted our invitation. We had a privilege to welcome the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, Mr. Rumen Radev, and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria, Tomislav Donchev, at the opening ceremony. Ms. Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society sent a video message to the participants. During the two days we have listened to 33 speakers!

Should you miss the event, it is still possible to get familiar with the speakers and materials:

Special place at the Conference was dedicated to the exhibition and presentation of election equipment vendors. The ACEEEO values the generous support of Information Services and Smartmatic.

We look forward to welcoming you next year at our 27th Annual Conference on 3-5 September 2018, in Vilnius, Lithuania!
