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.

That can and must be improved!”


Are you also curious about what is happening in the ...

For Event Confederation, a situation like the rave in Brustem is unacceptable
07 May 2023

For Event Confederation, a situation like the rave in Brustem is unacceptable. We also like to organize parties, but not in this way.


Organizers and suppliers are expected to respect a laundry list of regulations. Control noise standards, ensure indoor air quality, use reusable cups, guarantee food safety, provide mobility plans, have safety & emergency plans available, set up access controls, ...

Back to work after 700 days of closure, but not yet profitable
12 February 2022

Good news today. Orange phase is announced: dynamic events are allowed back, capacity for non-dynamic events has been increased, catering can be standing again, trade fairs can receive more visitors, team buildings can go back so that companies can better connect with their employees, companies can meet their customers again, no closing time more,…


And yet… Allowing 70% or 80% ...

Barometer brings perspective, but not enough for the broad sector
22 January 2022

There is a barometer thanks to the hard work of the cabinets. The final parameters are not yet completely clear, but part of our sector can certainly get back to work under the barometer in phase red. This is a good evolution and politicians deserve thanks for this.


The event sector opens to never close again, we have to get ...

Event sector denounces total lack of legal certainty
03 December 2021

A new consultation committee every week, new decisions every week and new restrictions provide the event sector with a total lack of legal certainty to do business. As a result, for the third week in a row, the sector is incurring new cancellation costs, without any compensation. Built-up events, refrigerators full of food ... And we're not even talking about ...

“Event sector on sale this Black Friday”
28 November 2021

'Solidarity with society', that has been the question from the government for 20 months now. We will comply with this - also this time - but this is the last 'lockdown' for our sector.


It is now urgently time to work out other solutions, but no more flashing light policy. Our sector - just like the public - can no ...

Wat mij betreft, GEEN CST (of CT na correctie van dhr Vanranst) en GEEN 2G maar het volledig opengooien van de samenleving. Er zijn al langere tijd voldoende wetenschappelijke bronnen die ondubbelzinnig aantonen dat deze waanzinnige koers meer schade aanricht dan een virtueel virus. Virtueel want nooit geïsoleerd maar AI-gegenereerd. Wake up & Speak up!

Event sector speaks of 'black Wednesday'!
17 November 2021

The fear communication that has been created in recent weeks around "organized public life" has already caused unrest among visitors and organizers. The numbers were already bad due to the continuous flow of messages in recent days, now they are disastrous.


By adding the mouth mask obligation to the CST, our event sector is 'de facto' closed. This decision is ...
