The Brussels Economic Forum

The Brussels Economic Forum is the flagship annual economic event of the European Commission.

For the past 20 years the Brussels Economic Forum has gathered high-level European and international policymakers, opinion leaders, influential academics, civil society and business leaders to identify key upcoming challenges and debate policy priorities for the European economy.

The Forum’s pledge to bring forward new perspectives and stimulate the debate around Europe’s current and future economic challenges makes it the place to be for forward looking conversations with influential speakers and participants.

Every year the Brussels Economic Forum attracts over 1000 participants and wide coverage in the media, with around 100 accredited journalists covering the event.

The 2020 Edition – BEF goes digital

This year the Forum celebrates its 20th anniversary in the exceptional economic circumstances caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and in order to ensure the health and safety of our audience, speakers and staff, #EUBEF20 has been transformed into a digital event.

As it has been for the past 20 years, the Brussels Economic Forum remains at the forefront of the debate and exchange of ideas on the economic policies and strategy needed to kick-start the European recovery.

We look forward to welcoming you to this special digital edition with a great line-up of high-level speakers and a forward-looking programme that reflects the unprecedented economic and social challenges that we are facing.

Join the #EUBEF20 debate!
