As part of the 20th anniversary of the European Single Market, Single Market Week ran from 15 to 20 October 2012 with events taking place in cities across the 27 Member States of the European Union.

These events brought together European citizens and businesses with Members of the European Parliament, the European Commission, the European Council and the Member States to mark and reflect on the past, present and future of the Single Market.

Europeans citizens, students, experts, businesses, national and local public authorities were provided with opportunities to discuss the main achievements of the Single Market during the last 20 years while also looking ahead, and sharing their views and expectations on the main challenges that the Single Market must overcome in the future.

These events were organised by the 27 Member States of the EU, in collaboration with the EU Representative Offices in their countries, and included forums, fairs, conferences, exhibitions, radio and TV programmes, quizzes etc.
