After ten years in EU affairs, Europtimum knows how to turn a classic EU public affairs event into a successful event. From studying the topic, identifying the target audience and relevant EU representatives, devising the event’s concept and coordinating the technical aspects before the event takes place, we support our clients in every step of the event’s management.
While event planning matters, and our clients surely benefit from our organisational experience, it is very clear for us that perfect logistics are not enough. To turn the event into a success, the content must be timely and relevant. Whether it is a written invitation or a speaking point, a thank you note or the minutes of the event, Europtimum is at the side of its clients to deliver equally on every meaningful detail. We also advise our clients on the best speakers, moderators and media coverage, so that their event has the greatest possible impact within and outside the EU bubble.
Europtimum can support clients in organising any type of event in Brussels. With many connections in the European Parliament, we can facilitate the organisation of an event in its premises, which offer various possibilities ranging from a working breakfast to a round-table discussion or evening cocktail. EU events can also be organised around EU Institutions, to attract a majority of EU decision-makers. We make all the preparation, including the benchmark of venues, so that our clients can focus on the content and the goals of their events. We leave nothing to chance and as simple as it sounds, it is a lot of hard work, but it really pays off for our clients.
A site visit can often be more explicit than long speeches or position papers. One major challenge for the EU Institutions is to regulate from broad economic sectors to very specific topics, without having the chance to actually experience the impact of the proposed regulation and change. This is why Europtimum strongly believes in the educative value of site visits. Well organised and properly managed, such events can deliver great results and help shape better regulations. We advise our clients on when and how to make it and support them in every step, from the preparation to the follow-up of the visit.
