Brussels shaken to the core by 22nd March

As a company that’s been at the heart of economic activity in Brussels for over 80 years, we have been profoundly shocked by the attacks that took place on 22nd March. Our thoughts remain first and foremost with the victims.

In the immediate aftermath, the organisers of certain exhibitions opted not to open their doors, but after a necessary period of mourning, normal activity resumed from 26 March.

Consultations have been going on between event organisers with a view to the rapid rescheduling of their activities. And thanks to the incredible resilience of our sector, new dates have been found for all events which had been scheduled for the week of the attacks but, due to the exceptional circumstances, did not take place.

We thank Infosecurity, Autotechnica & Service Station, SMAP, Plastic Recycling Show and Forum For The Future for their confidence in Brussels Expo.
