Aidex 2017, The Global Humanitarian & Development and Event, 15-16 November, Brussels

AidEx Brussels

aidex

The largest international event for the sector

Now in its 7th year, AidEx is established as the leading platform for the international aid and development community to come together and improve the efficiency of aid.

AidEx is a two day event, which encompasses a conference, exhibition, meeting areas, awards and workshops. Its fundamental aim is to engage the sector at every level and provide a forum for aid & development professionals to meet, source, supply and learn.

AidEx was created to help the international aid and development community engage the private sector in a neutral setting, drive innovation and support the ever-growing need for emergency aid and development programmes.

Why AidEx?

AidEx is a unique, world-renowned event that works hard to genuinely improve the situation on the ground.  Our aim is to bring the international aid community to Brussels. From major NGOs and global policy makers through to innovative suppliers of specialist products, AidEx facilitates relationships that would be otherwise unachievable.

The two-day programme of events has been specially designed with networking in mind. The drinks reception, exhibition tours and other organised activities encourage our audience to build long-lasting relationships that will enrich their future in the sector.

Theme for 2017

Each year the AidEx Steering Committee discuss a topic that the event should focus on to make sure it remains current and delivers what our visitors and suppliers need. The conference theme for 2017 will be announced shortly.
Our past conference themes have included Localisation, Sustainable Development, Innovation and Collaboration.
