“The overall quality of the conference together with the diverse and interesting topics during the workshops and parallel sessions have been of great value for us – these have provided us not only the chance to effectively exchange views and ideas on specific subjects related to the provision of innovative social services, but also the opportunity to get interesting insights in view of the 26th ESSC to be organised in Sevilla”

Regional Ministry for Equality and Social Services of Andalucia


The European Social Services Conference (ESSC) is the European Social Network’s annual flagship event. Bringing together thousands of senior professionals from all sectors and across over the past 25 years, the ESSC has long been pioneering the value of knowledge exchange in improving services and transforming people’s lives. Since the first event in 1993, we have witnessed extraordinary developments of new ideas and technology impacting on our own lives and the lives of those we care for.

The 26th edition of the ESSC is organised for the first time in association with the Regional Ministry of Equality, Health and Social Policies of the Regional Government of Andalusia, a member of ESN, who will co-host the event in the beautiful city of Seville.
