Every year ECG organises a Dinner Debate in the European Parliament to enable our members, politicians and interested parties to come together and discuss views on topics of current interest or concern to our sector while dining within the European Parliament here in Brussels. Normally held during the month of March these events are hosted on behalf of ECG by a Member of the European Parliament (MEP).

In 2012 our Dinner Debate was held on 20th March, hosted by Malcolm Harbour MEP (Chairman of the Internal Market Committee). To read a summary of the proceedings, and also to find links to the agenda, ECG presentation and photographs of the event, please see the page ECG Dinner Debate 2012.

In 2013 our Dinner Debate was held on 19th March, hosted by Mr Brian Simpson MEP (Chairman of the Transport and Tourism Committee). To download the programme, list of participants, presentations and ECG press release reporting on the event, please see the page ECG Dinner Debate 2013.
