Following the tragic events in Brussels, yesterday evening, whereby two Swedish football supporters have lost their life, the government has increased the security level to the highest level possible, Level 4, for the entire Brussels Capital Region.
Consequently, and taking into account that many companies and organizations have asked their employees to telework today, we have decided to CANCEL the Bepact Fireside Chat with Secretary of State Alexia Bertrand of this evening at Febelfin.
We will look for a new date, and will communicate as soon as we can.
Please make sure you remain safe, and even if the gunman would have been shot, we need to remain vigilant for copy-cats or further escalation.
Thank you for your comprehension.
Let’s also take a moment today, to pay tribute to the two innocent people that lost their life.
Take good care,
Stefaan Fiers, president Bepact,
Jord Van Wassenhove, chairman WG activities,
Jeroen Dhanens & Isabelle Marchand, organizers of the event
