elcomUkraine 2018 will once again deliver as an excellent platform for decision-makers from all sectors of the Central and Eastern European industry, public institutions and the services industry to get in contact with cutting-edge solutions first, and to meet new suppliers.

A major event bringing the two sides of supply and demand together for business. An integral part of elcomUkraine is its action-packed program of professional conferences, presentations and seminars. The target of elcomUkraine has always been to support the Ukrainian industry and Ukrainian SMEs to improve their production facilities and to challenge the Ukrainian government on its way to modernize public infrastructure and introduce energy efficiency in all walks of life.

It goes without saying that the energy and industrial sector is one of the largest segments of the Ukrainian industry. The sector generates hundreds of thousands of jobs in the country and employs a considerable amount of the Ukrainian workforce.
