The annual general assembly of APPLiA Europe
The annual meeting of APPLiA Europe was held in Sofia from June 21 – 23, 2022.
After a two-year break due to the pandemic, it was great to meet colleagues again and talk face-to-face about the main challenges facing the industry.
The association elected a new chairman: after Dr. Peter Goetz (BSH), Hakan Bulgluru, CEO of Arcelik, a company that manufactures Beko household appliances, took over the position of president.
Hakan Bulgluru is not only a businessman, but also a climate activist and writer: in his recently published book “Everest, a mountain to climb”, he summarized the great challenges of our time.
Istanbul will host the industry meeting in 2023. Photos taken at the Sofia meeting can be viewed here. (The short film was made by Fanni Mészáros, company manager of APPLiA Hungary.)
