Meet the Association Bureau Team

Meet the Association Bureau Team

This is us! 

With more than 2.300 international associations based here, Brussels is the world leader for association headquarters. That's why the Association Bureau can rely on a strong team! 

The Association Bureau provides guidance and information support to all those associations wishing to setup in Brussels and all those already present in the city.

Besides its office and online presence the team organises jointly with different partners various events across the year, such as the annual peer-to-peer education and networking conference European Association Summit in March, the Summer Event in July and the Winter Event at the end of the year. We also organise or support various other thematic activities all year round.

We are always very pleased to meet you at ours or your offices and during our travels around the world.
