Luk Warlop, President, European Marketing Academy
“In 2015 we organised the annual conference of the European Marketing Academy in Leuven (EMAC).
It was a large conference, with 900+ participants spread over 4 days. It featured plenaries, poster sessions, up to 15 parallel sessions at the same time, lots of smaller committee meetings, and a doctoral student consortium. All activities were held in KU Leuven buildings, located within a radius of about 200 meters in the centre of Leuven, using lecture halls and seminar rooms for the conference sessions, and making maximum use of the attractive historical locations for the more prestigious conference activities like the opening reception, the keynote speech and the award sessions.
The closing conference dinner was held in a huge tent on the lawn in front of the Arenberg Castle."
Bringing your conference to Leuven allows you to immerse it in a safe but vibrant university town, use the ample facilities of the university and work with a dedicated Convention Bureau.
