Dear Friend of Flanders,

In view of the COVID-19-situation, specific safety measures and additional restrictions are currently in place across Belgium. You will find more detailed information on following website. For the latest travel advice to our country, please consult your local authorities.

If you are travelling to Flanders, Brussels or elsewhere in Belgium for a duration of 48 hours or more, you will need to complete a Passenger Locator Form, within the 48 hours before your arrival in Belgium. 

Take good care of yourself and each other and keep it safe and healthy.  

We hope to welcome you again soon, with twice the heart, love and hospitality.

How the virtual event will operate

All delegates will attend the online event with the use of an avatar and enter the platform into a lobby. From here delegates can chat with hosted buyers/suppliers and browse the attendee list to meet contacts throughout the day.

All delegates will be able to attend the plenary sessions, webinars and experiences by visiting the main Flanders Auditorium. 

Exhibitor billboards act as a suppliers booth and will be located within one of 6 themed doors relating to: Flemish Masters, Cycling, Gastronomy, World War 1, Heritage and Nature/Sustainability.  Upon entering the room, delegates will see a company logo highlighted on a billboard.  Simply click on a billboard and delegates can chat, watch a video, download a brochure, and exchange business cards with each company representative. 

Please note all pre-booked 1-to-1 meetings, via live video calls, will run alongside the event platform via Conversationstarter. Nothing has to be installed to allow the live video calls. Each 1-to-1 meeting permits one person from each company to meet and do business. Video calls last up to 15 minutes in duration and will display a 1-minute countdown before the meeting ends.  

Delegates will automatically receive their schedule of appointments once they have registered their profile on the platform and by further accepting or requesting appointments with suppliers/buyers up until the day prior to the event.  Delegates can operate their own schedule by blocking off time to attend webinars/experiences of their choice, enabling them to create the agenda that best meets their needs.
