Event Confederation is an umbrella organization that unites, represents, defends and informs the broad event sector in Belgium. Our members are federations that are recognized and praised for their commitment to the different types of event professionals within the broad event sector: suppliers, organizers, venues, agencies, catering, festivals, etc.
In order to promote the broad interests of everyone in the event sector and our members in particular, we want to be structurally visible and be the first point of contact for event professionals, policy makers, researchers, media and the general public. We do not drive for one specific group within one specific region, but we are the voice for everyone active in our sector. These are all professionals who spend more than 50% of their turnover organizing and/or supplying events (conferences, fairs, festivals, public events, company parties, etc.). That is why, as the Event Confederation, we are strongly committed to communicating with the various stakeholders who can contribute to a stronger and more united event sector in our country. To realize our ambitions, we focus on the development domains: knowledge and talent development, innovation and sustainability, safety and prevention.
Today, Event Confederation manager Christine Merckx talked to Kevin Van der Straeten about the challenges for the events sector of tomorrow: “The complexity and diversity of our sector creates an ever-increasing lasagna of legislation in which a cat can no longer find its young. . That can and must be improved!”
