For the first time in its history, the 2016 edition of the GS1 in Europe* Regional Forum was held between October 17 – 21 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The Regional Forum is being held annually in a different European country and involves representatives from 47 national GS1 organizations from Europe and Asia. This year’s edition, hosted by GS1 Bulgaria was attended by nearly 300 delegates.
During the five-day event participants had the opportunity to explore the unseen face of Bulgaria’s capital and learn more about ‘Sofia’s Roman Past’ within EXCEDO Travel’s walking tour of this millennial city.
In addition to the city’s iconic Roman era structures, such as the Rotunda of St. George and the Eastern gate of the fortified ancient town, delegates of the forum visited the ruins of Serdica’s amphitheatre and the archaeological complex underneath the Basilica of St. Sofia – the hidden jewel of Bulgaria’s capital.
