Everything you need to know and more about our first big European Tech event, taking place in Brussels Expo on Tuesday 17 May.
A guide to Tech.eu Summit 2022

The first Tech.eu Summit is fast approaching and with a few days to go it seemed like a good idea to put together some information to make sure you have the best possible event experience.

Practical information

Date: Tuesday 17 May 2022

Time: Doors will open at 7:30 AM CEST and we suggest arriving no later than 8 AM CEST to make sure you can enjoy some networking and coffee before the busy program kicks off with a stellar opening ceremony and killer sessions, rather than queuing outside.

We expect to end the event day around 5:40 PM CEST.

Location: Brussels Expo (official address is Place de Belgique 1 -- 1020 Brussels, but see below for directions)

Online ticket holders: The event will be live-streamed here.

Social media: We've been using the hashtag #TechEUSummit for communication around the event, so it would be awesome if you could use it on your social media channels as well!

How to get there

The Brussels Expo has the most accurate and up-to-date information on how to get to the venue (entrance to the Tech.eu Summit will be at Hall 10).

There's ample parking space around the venue, but we suggest using public transportation (particularly metro, tram or bus) if possible; both morning and late afternoon traffic around Brussels can be brutal.

Pro tip: there will be a Visit Brussels stand in the exhibition area, and they will give you free public transportation tickets to get back home or use in the days following the event!

The entrance to Tech.eu Summit 2022 will be situated at Hall 10, situated on the right side when you're looking at the iconic Palais 5 (with the even more iconic Atomium behind you, in other words).

Bonus: our friends at Pony are giving all attendees a number of free e-scooter rides; they will be parked right in front of Brussels Expo. You can use the code “EUTECHSUMMIT” in the Pony app to secure two 60-minute rides free of charge.

Event registration & Badge pick-up

First and foremost, make sure you've secured your ticket and received a confirmation email.

On Tuesday morning, head on over to Brussels Expo and find the entrance by Gate C.

There will be signage outside and inside the venue to make sure you find your way there, and we have staff taking care of your registration and to keep your belongings safe in a secured cloakroom. A team of volunteers will be spread across the venue halls throughout the day to ensure a great experience for you, even it's your first time at Brussels Expo.

Please bring your ticket to the event, as well as a government-issued photo ID. Again, we suggest arriving no later than 8:15AM CEST to make sure you can fully enjoy the event.

Can't seem to find your ticket? No need to fret, if you give us your name along with a photo ID we will retrieve your registration on-site.

Networking with other attendees

Offline events are a natural place for networking, and we've got a nice little tool to make things as easy as it gets!

Instructions:

  • Log in to your Tech.eu account (using the email address used to register for the Summit ticket)
  • Complete your profile
  • Head on over to the Tech.eu Summit website
  • Click the 'Join the Event' button on the top
  • Find the networking tool on the right
  • Go forth and connect with other logged-in attendees!

What to expect on-site

Check out our star-packed agenda (note that there are two stages, 'Inspire' and 'Grow') and speaker line-up. With 90+ international speakers, expect a day chock-full of inspiration.

There will be networking and quiet areas in Hall 10 where our many sponsors and partners will be exhibiting, as well as a variety of delicious food stands and coffee+water corners to make sure you stay fed and hydrated.

Oh, and there will be treats from Visit Brussels and Qallo. ;)

Covid-19 measures / travel info

There are currently no coronavirus-related measures in place that would interfere with a 'normal' Tech.eu Summit experience, but we do advise to check out the official government information website.

Please do note there it is still mandatory to wear a face mask on public transport from the age of 12, and of course there may be certain requirements in place depending on where you are traveling from. Check out the official government website for more information.

If you have any concerns or questions, do please get in touch.

Side events

This year, our focus was on delivering a great Summit, so there are no official side events or after parties planned for attendees. That said, the weather forecast for next week is looking very promising so seize the opportunity to discover Brussels' amazing food scene and nightlife if you can.

May we humbly suggest checking out the area around Place Saint-Géry and Place Sainte-Catherine for a guaranteed good time.

Shout-out to our amazing partners

This event wouldn't even begin to be possible without the help and support of our many sponsors, ecosystem and media partners.

Massive thank you already to Google Cloud, Nasdaq, the European Innovation Council, our Gold and Platinum partners.

Much love also for Molten Ventures, Scaleway, Target Global, Sastrify, Pony, Isomer Capital, Colendi and VAUBAN for the support.
