Manifesto eventplanner.net

eventplanner.net is unlike any traditional company you know. We’re dedicated to the cause of inspiring event planners to push their boundaries, go further than they ever imagined and grow beyond their potential. We believe that helping our community to organise extraordinary events puts a dent in the universe. Because events do more than just bring people together. They have the potential to change lives, one remarkable experience at a time. By shaping tools and sharing ideas, we help a creative industry thrive and make a positive impact on everyone it touches.

We connect talent from across the globe

The people who build our business are exceptional at what they do. Our head office may be based in Belgium, but our team works from all four corners of the globe. Connecting the best talent digitally.

We are passionate about entrepreneurship. Many of our team members work on other projects as well, enabling them to expand their horizons, learn new techniques and bring in fresh ideas, knowledge and experience. Because we understand that the brightest sparks cannot be tamed and need space to shine.

For the same reason, we are extremely flexible when it comes to working hours and balancing our private lives. But don’t get us wrong! We’re also extremely efficient and dedicated to getting things done. We take our responsibility seriously and are proud of our work.

We empower people to become the best versions of themselves

We're not just about high-performance at work. We encourage our people to learn from each other, from our company and our community. We stay ahead of the curve and help our community do the same. By creating the kind of environment that fosters lifelong learning and personal growth.

We live for the thrill of pushing forward, in order to innovate and improve ourselves, our products, our services, the way we do business and how we interact with people and our environment. And we inspire others to do the same.

We offer mentorship to our team, helping them achieve their own dreams while they help our community achieve theirs. We inspire them to push further by offering coaching, partnering up on new business ideas, organising unique experiences and investing in other initiatives that fuel personal growth.

We develop innovations at lightning pace to stay on the cutting edge of our industry

We can be a bit geeky. We love technology and we love exploring it, playing with it and using it to build solutions that empower our community. We see opportunities where others see obstacles. We just think differently.

Our world is changing rapidly. To stay relevant, we owe it to ourselves and our community to be flexible and to keep pushing forward through innovation. It’s part of our DNA to never stop, to be always on the lookout for the next big thing. And by the time we finish one project, the next is already in line. Right now we’re playing with big data, AI, virtual reality, online streaming, ...

We are open-minded and absorb ideas from across industries to feed our hunger for creativity. We build bridges with other communities. And by joining the dots, we improve and apply existing ideas to our industry. So we can add value without having to reinvent the wheel every time.

We believe that beauty doesn’t just apply to stunning designs or skillfully craft copy but also to what lies under the hood. Which is why our engineers, for example, take the time to write beautifully clean code and stay up to date with the technology we use. Making it a joy to work on our software.

We believe passion powers motivation and excellence

We absolutely love what we do and we do it with passion. We always go the extra mile. We even “play” with our projects in our spare time. Not because we need to but because we want to. Working together towards our cause is an incredible source of energy and a catalyst for our creativity. And that’s when work no longer feels like work.

Even though days in the office can also be intense, we believe that working together should be fun and exciting. We believe that happiness and health are the most powerful drivers of productivity. Which explains why the vast majority of our team stay on board for several years. Some have even been with us from the very beginning and have become friends along the way.

In the same sense, our leadership is an extension of our founders’ original passion and vision. It is a reflection of our core reason for being: "to inspire people to grow and push their boundaries". Because with passion comes energy, excitement and enthusiasm. And by thinking big, big things can happen.

We're far from perfect

Even though we carefully select brilliant people to join us, we do make mistakes and are far from perfect. Knowing that keeps us agile and able to fix what we broke quickly, to learn from the experience, and to grow.

It takes a special breed of person to thrive in our environment. We stand up for what we believe in. And while we know that doesn’t always resonate with everybody, that’s OK. One thing we know for sure is that if you make it in, you get to work with some of the best minds in the business.
