Belgian Economic Mission to the United Kingdom

ecobuild.brussels will be participating in taking a Belgian delegation to Greater London from 6 to 8 September for a Belgian Economic Mission chaired by Princess Astrid.

We will focus on Brussels’ efforts and expertise in circular construction, from choosing materials that can be reused and recycled without loss of quality, to optimising the lifespan of the products created and seeking energy efficiency in design.

Official meetings, company visits, sector seminars, signature ceremonies, networking receptions… take advantage of this extensive three-day programme which will also include tailored individual meetings organised by our local ECA.
