Face-to-Face with our regional trade representatives

Wednesday, May 6, 5 PM

Zoom Video Conference from Your Home




With the shelter-in-place, we came up with a new event using the Zoom video technology where everyone can join our presentation from the comfort of their home!  We invited our 3 Belgian regional trade commissioners to present their work in Northern California and other western states.  This presentation will be in 3 parts.  First, each speaker will describe what their job consists of; then, they will tell us some success stories; and finally, we will have questions & answers from the participants...so you will be able to interact directly with the Commissioners of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels.  As you see, we like you to be involved not only in the conversation, but we also want you to invite your friends from here and/or Belgium.

The presenters: 

  1. Eric Gabrys, Trade & Investment Commissioner, HUB.Brussels
  2. Baudouin de Hemptinne, Trade & Investment Commissioner, Wallonia Export-Investment Agency
  3. Wim Sohier, Science and Technology Counselor, Flanders Investment and Trade

The moderator: Martine Peetermans-Bolsens, Executive Director, Amici Lovanienses...encouraging creative thinking today to benefit from powerful inventions tomorrow.

Please join us for this presentation and discussion via Zoom video conferencing to understand what the local assignments of our regional Commissioners are, how their work helps the different regions of Belgium, and how entrepreneurs can benefit from their knowledge & services.
