Brussels Public Affairs Forum 2022

14 Apr, 2022


29 September 2022
8:30 - 16:00 CET (Brussels)
In-person conference

Businesses and governments operate in an uncertain and rapidly changing landscape. Faced with increasingly complex and multifaceted issues, from a global pandemic to international conflicts, climate-related risks and global economic crises, public affairs leaders need to work harder to manage their public affairs function, protect their company’s reputation and deliver on public and government expectations.

Join your peers in this year’s in-person Brussels Forum to participate in panel discussions, networking and workshops on some of the key issues that are defining the Public Affairs landscape today.
