The Antwerp Forum 2018 - April 27th

During a one-day conference, April 27th @ Elzenveld, Chinese and European business people had the opportunity to gain new insights on business strategies, intercultural exchange and the benefits of cooperation. Furthermore, THE ANTWERP FORUM surely is the place to be for meeting new business partners and initiating long-term relationships across the world.

After three successful editions in 2011, 2013 and 2015, THE ANTWERP FORUM has grown to be an established name to business people and entrepreneurs, as well as to academics and government officials interested in China-Europe cooperation.

With high-level speakers, company testimonials, panel discussions and industry-specific break-out sessions, the edition of 2018 focused on China as a global leader and the impact for the global economy and more specifically for European businesses. Will China take the lead, and what’s in it for Europe?

We welcomed around 150 participants who discovered all of this together with us at THE ANTWERP FORUM 2018 – April 27th @ Elzenveld!
