AidEx 2019 - Bruxelles, Belgium
RPS Partnership attended this year's AidEx 2019 in Bruxelles - a two day event on 13 and 14 November 2019, which encompasses a conference, exhibition, meeting areas, awards and workshops. Its fundamental aim was to engage the sector at every level and provide a forum for aid & development professionals to meet, source, supply and learn.
RPS partook in the excellent workshop hosted by the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) , Developing and Implementing People-focused Approaches to Ensure Effective Security Risk Management.
This was an excellent opportunity to hear what the Aid sector was saying about keeping its workers safe as well as getting the opportunity to meet with other organisations such as Transparency International, Medicins sans Frontier, Save the Children, Lutheran World Relief, Oxfam UK, CBM International and a whole host of other organisations. Good to also meet up with organisations with whom we are also providing training for.
AidEx was created to help the international aid and development community engage the private sector in a neutral setting, drive innovation and support the ever-growing need for emergency aid and development programmes.
AidEx is a unique, world-renowned event that works hard to genuinely improve the situation on the ground. Our aim is to bring the international aid community to Brussels. From major NGOs and global policy makers through to innovative suppliers of specialist products, AidEx facilitates relationships that would be otherwise unachievable.
The two-day programme of events has been specially designed with networking in mind. The drinks reception, exhibition tours and other organised activities encourage our audience to build long-lasting relationships that will enrich their future in the sector.
