Brussels Wednesday Socials

In cooperation with the Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE) and the European Movement International (EMI), METRO GROUP initiated the Brussels Wednesday Socials at the end of 2013. Twice a year, debates on commercial issues are held here with guest speakers from politics, commerce and society. Even prior to the event itself, the issue in question can be discussed on the relevant online platform.

Our Brussels Wednesday Socials are based on the tried and trusted Berlin format and aim to bring trade issues to the fore in political and social debates in Brussels.

One of our main hopes is to bring together people from different areas to hear their different perspectives and learn from each other.

We cordially invite you to join in with our discussion: on site in Brussels, on the website of the Brussels Wednesday Social at the Digital Office Brussels or on Twitter with the hash tag #MGBRU.

Videos of all Wednesday Socials to date can be viewed on our Youtube channel.
