EMEA Benelux Conference

 

With it's stunning canals and beautiful architecture the historical city of Bruges served as a fitting backdrop to this year's EMEA Benelux Conference. There is no substitute for the outstanding discussion and idea sharing that takes place at this event and this year was no exception. 

After a welcome lunch the Benelux Conference began with a meeting for the Benelux Managing Partners only during which the attendees discussed a number of important issues facing the region as well as completing the board elections. After the rest of the attendees completed their registration everybody gathered at the beautiful city hall for their welcome. The day ended with a great visit to Bruges' De Halve Maan brewery where attendees were treated to some of the excellent local beers. 

The next day was full of insightful speakers and great presentations which began with an update on PrimeGlobal's EMEA region from EMEA Chief Regional Officer Thierry Delvaux. This was followed by UnifiedPost Group's Jan Druppel whose presentation on the impact of the payment service directive on the accounting profession answered the question as to whether the electronic invoice will become reality. After a short coffee break Prof. Dr Dave Sinardet from the Free University of Brussels gave an interesting presentation entitled Everything You Wanted To Know About Belgium But Were Afraid To Ask. After lunch the Benelux Board members brought the 2018 EMEA Benelux Conference to a close followed by a fun evening touring the beautiful city of Bruges. 

Thank you to everybody who joined us at the 2018 Benelux Conference. We look forward to seeing you all again. Read more about the event highlights here: http://bit.ly/2ps5Qxx
