Key activities 2017

New year, new challenges!

In 2017 the Association Bureau will continue to develop its main activities for international associations in Brussels.

For the 5th consecutive year, the European Association Summit, the annual conference for associations, will take place on 30-31 May at the Square. The conference increases its length and will last two full days.

The One Stop Shop, the single point for contact for associations, whereby we aim to inform you, assist you and guide you towards the right interlocutors present in Belgium, will be reinforced with new tools and contact details.

This year shall also see the opening of new meeting and working premises for international associations present or coming to Brussels. We feel that this initiative should enhance networking and experience sharing among different association representatives and let know better about various activities happening in Belgium.

The Association Bureau will also reinforce the ties with its partners from the Global Association Hubs Partnership (GAHP) – Dubai, Singapore and Washington DC – and contribute to the development of the platform.

More information shall also be communicated through the website and social media, including the calendar of seminars and other activities, as well as association related material.

And if you are doing an event for associations in Brussels, you may always submit your activities to be featured in the calendar at associations@visit.brussels.
