Welcome to the Belgian communication Summit 2019 !

26 November 2019

We are very happy to invite you to the 5th edition of the Belgian Communication Summit !

What can you expect?


This year, the Communications Summit of C² on November 26th 2019 in the KBC auditorium in Brussels, will focus entirely on the future of our media landscape in Belgium. 


·      How will traditional print media have the best chances to consolidate or improve their place on the market ? 

·      What about competition from “Big Tech” players with their social media channels ? 

·      Is the status of journalists and editorial staff dramatically changing ? What about bloggers and influencers ? 

·      Will they start playing a more important role ? 


We will have key note speeches by Peter Vandermeersch (NRC) and Jean-Paul Philippot (RTBF). Afterwards there will be an interactive panel discussion where the key note speakers are joined by Paul Daenen (De Persgroep), Isabel Albers (Mediafin) and Olivier Standaert (Prof. UCL)


Of course, all participants and attendees will have wide opportunities to ask questions, raise their voice and add their insights. 

We start in a slightly changed format to make the Summit more attractive to the audience, and we will start at 16h30 with a welcome coffee, afterwards listen to the key note speeches and the panel debate. We will close the Summit around 19h with a networking reception
