The Presidents’ Meeting of BEST is an annual event that gathers the presidents of the 96 Local BEST Groups across 34 countries, together with the leaders of the organisation and partners of BEST.
Each year the assembly is hosted in a different city. This year’s edition is held in Valladolid, Spain.
The Presidents’ Meeting starts with the Official Opening Day, which will be held at Conde Ansúrez Congress Palace on the 12th of November 2019.
In this event, the biggest one in BEST, around 150 students – including presidents and delegates from every local group of the association, as well as coordinators from the international departments, international board and guests from the partner organisations of BEST – will gather, debate and work on the future of the association during a whole week.
BEST strives to channel its stakeholders’ forces towards relevant societal challenges. For that reason, our projects and services this year will focus on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will also be the main topic of the Opening Day.
The audience composed of:
170 International students from leading technical universities
100 local and national student
University and City Hall representatives
Companies and Partner Institutions
During the Opening day, our partner companies and universities, as well as relevant Engineering and Higher Education institutions, will gather with our participants in an engaging environment to showcase their efforts in tackling these Goals. It’s a unique and exclusive opportunity for our partners to engage with young talented students and to empower their brand as a progressive and innovative company.
