What is a Meetup?

An Enterprise Meetup is a half day event of local Extended Workforce Procurement & Talent Acquisition Leaders with vetted Solution Providers collaborating on best practices & networking in a safe venue.  It is typically hosted by an Enterprise Client at their corporate offices.

Who should attend?

Join an exclusive group of 40 Extended Workforce Leaders including Procurement, Talent Acquisition Leaders and Highly Vetted Sponsors as you collaborate on best practices in a safe venue. Meetups offers real-time market intelligence & insights for Extended Workforce Programs. The following Enterprise Leaders may join:

Virtual events vs. In-person events

While virtual events are easy and efficient, assembling in a safe and secure environment creates the necessary space to deepen relationships and expand thinking… creating trust and uncovering new ways of working.  (Being in Brussels doesn’t hurt, either.)

In-person and Ad-hoc

The best conversations are unplanned and spontaneous. "Bump into" your next peer mentor and solution innovator.​

Interactive Sessions

Lectures be gone! Dive deep during roundtables with Procurement and TA peers plus vetted, innovative provider sponsors.​

Cocktail Mixer

Experience a networking event like no other. Relax and unwind with peers and new colleagues. Grow your network and find affinities with each other.

FREE Tickets Available

Enterprise Clients attend for FREE including the in-person event plus cocktail networking reception.

Train ride away

Located in the center of Brussels and convenient by train and plane.

LinkedIn Live

Keynotes will be LIVE broadcasted on LinkedIn to reach thousands of Talent Leaders around the world.
