AidEx Brussels

The largest international event for the sector 

Now in its 10th 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, networking and workshops. Its fundamental aim is to engage the sector at every level and provide a forum for humanitarian aid professionals to meet, source, supply and learn. AidEx was created to help the international aid community engage the private sector in a neutral setting, drive innovation and support the ever-growing need for emergency aid and development programmes.


Theme for 2021

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. Our past conference themes have included Localisation, Sustainable Development, Innovation and Collaboration. The 2020 webinar series theme was 'Response, recovery and resilience: optimising humanitarian responses to manage global crises’.You can listen back to the series here.

The 2021 conference theme is 'Global growth in authoritarian and populist government is shrinking the space for civil society – how have the world’s most powerful movements countered this trend and what lessons can be learnt?'. Speakers will be announced shortly.
