How Brussels Works


Join us on March 17/18 for the sixth EU Public Affairs conference in Brussels. We are looking forward to discussing recent changes in the Institutions and the latest strategies with you and our speakers from L'Orèal, Nike Inc., The Permanent Representation of Denmark to the EU, The Volkswagen Group and many more.

about the Conference

For most public affairs professionals, the fact that the idea behind the EU's recent transparency initiative has been to restore faith in the Union has not eluded them. But restoring faith is quite difficult to achieve just through the occasional “miracle”. Even more so against the backdrop not just of profound inter-institutional change, but also of dramatic political turmoil both on the national and international stage. One thing is certain: the co-dependencies of legislation and interest groups will continue their adaptation process under these new circumstances for the foreseeable future with undiminished intensity.

The first day of our conference will focus both on public affairs strategies and campaigning, but also on the structural value of a Brussels representation in corporate and ­national strategies. On the second day we will take a closer look at specific tools and methods, ­empowering you to improve the efficiency of your public affairs work.

During this two-day event we facilitate interactions between ­lobbyists, political ­analysts and EU representatives who are ready to ­answer all your questions.

At our Public Affairs conferences we gather mid- to senior-level Public Affairs professionals from Brussels and the rest of Europe. There is always a good mix of locals and visitors and we welcome participants from about 20 different countries.
In order to allow for younger professionals to be at the same level we invite you in 2016 to our "Public Affairs in Brussels 101" session, clarifying some basics. This allows you to later focus better on the in-depth topics being discussed.

  3. Finding solutions for a more transparent lobbying process
  4. Getting to know over 100 PA professionals
