Establishing the Cornerstone of Excellence

Launched with an inspiring address by Lech Wałęsa—Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former President of Poland—at the CEO pre-conference dinner in May 2023, the Club of 369 has quickly become the strategic core of the Poland & CEE Retail Summit. Named for the numbers 3, 6, and 9 due to their mystical and numerological significance, the club originally set an ambitious goal to feature at least 369 speakers and panelists. This target was not only met but exceeded at the 2024 summit, which showcased over 400 speakers and panelists, symbolizing the club's commitment to fostering extensive and comprehensive dialogue within the retail sector.Now in its second year, the Club of 369 is evolving into a more significant entity, serving as a pivotal platform that drives innovation, shapes industry trends, and enhances professional development across the CEE retail landscape.
