ACA Annual Conference 2015: Internationalisation: from strategy to implementation
Brussels, 14-16 June 2015
Does Brussels need an introduction? The ‘capital of Europe’ and, of course, Belgium, is a charming metropolis of human size. It is the seat of most EU institutions, and thus always offers the extra benefit of a rendezvous with your counterparts in the European Commission. Brussels is one of the most multicultural cities in Europe, with a population composed of dozens of nationalities and speaking even more languages.
It is also a city of gastronomic delights where, as the legendary gourmand John Steak once famously pointed out, it is almost impossible to be served a bad meal. The city of Belgium fries, mussels, fine chocolates and a delightful diversity of beers. The city of legends like the singer Jacques Brel, the painter René Margritte and the cartoonist Hergé. A place of famous architecture and architects, such as Victor Horta and Henry van de Velde. And the seat of the ACA team, inclusive of the famous hippopotamus.
