Dear members,
On 23 March, the BeLux Chambers in Asia Collective presents its next High Caliber Speaker web talk. This time featuring two speakers providing our guests insights in how one goes about postponing an enormous event like the Dubai Expo 2020!


The Directors of the Belgian & Luxembourg Pavilions Myriam Cops (BE) and Daniel Sahr (LUX) join us from Dubai as the Expo draws to a close, talking to our guests about questions such as:

  • how does one postpone such a massive event & keep morale high?
  • what is it like to organize national pavilions during a World Expo?
  • how did the cultural differences affect the organization?
  • as Myriam was involved in the previous World Expo in Shanghai as well, how was this World Expo different?
  • what learnings, tips & tricks can our speakers share with our guests from their experience?
  • what is next for our 2 speakers?
