Bapco, the Belgian Association of Professional Congress Organisers, comprises 14 members from the area of congresses.
Both organizations have today merged into a single association under the name Febelux. Frédéric François, President of Febelux since June 2015, retains his position in the new structure.The merger increases the number of members to 122.
« As an organization, regrouping our strengths provides us with more weight in the defense of our common interests. The consolidation of our network increases our influence and strengthens our contacts with the public authorities and the official entities. » explains Frédéric François.

The exhibits and congress sectors are responsible for more than 1000 events in Belgium. They employ more than 50.000 people. Their economic impact, estimated at 2.5 billion euros, is critical for our country. Direct and indirect revenues are close to 15 billion euros*.
