Dear Colleagues,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the plenary meeting of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the European Contract Catering Sector which will be organised on 28 September 2021 from 9 am to 4 pm, in form of a face-to-face meeting.

We are looking forward to meeting you all in person, again, as it makes exchange of information and joint discussions much more fruitful. So, we encourage you all to join us in Brussels!

However, be assured that we will monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, to make sure the “in-person” format can be kept. Therefore, we recommend you not to book flights and accommodation until the situation is clarified (most probably at the beginning of September).
