Forum Europe www.forum-europe.com
At Forum Europe, we've been staging leading European political events for over 20 years. Our in-depth knowledge of the Brussels and EU market makes us the number one choice for companies and organisations staging political and policy events in Europe and beyond.
With offices in the heart of Europe, at La Bibliotheque Solvay in Brussels, our multilingual and dynamic team delivers excellent networking opportunities and high quality content, feeding directly into the policy formulation process. Our operations are divided into two distinct but complementary services:

We work with a range of clients with varying interests, from large multinational corporations to NGOs and charities – and everything in between. We know that the success of every event depends on forming a strong, close working relationship with our partner or client. Click here to find out what our clients have to say about us.
