An annual forum held in Brussels to bridge the transatlantic gap between Europe and the Americas. The sponsors of this event hope to bring leaders from both sides of the Atlantic sea to discuss the issues that are most pressing for both sides and to create synergies for cooperation. Recent topics have included climate change, trade policy and immigration.
The speakers are notable members of parliament from European countries, the media, industry groups, multinational companies such as Google and many other organisations who have a stake in the relations between Europe and America. The main sponsor and organiser is the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
Held in March over a weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the setting is similar to other conferences with a large conference hall for shared sessions and smaller break out rooms for elective sessions. Media is present but parts of the conference are off the record and closed to the media.
On their website you will find transcripts, videos, archives and agendas from forums dating back to 2006. See what the speakers have to say about Asia, the Middle East, Russia and technology.
This event is normally hosted at the Conrad Hotel in Brussels, Belgium each year. A grand venue that’s large enough to accommodate over a hundred delegates and speakers. Metro: Louise
