Registration is now open: BEREC Stakeholder Forum

22 September 2021

After more than a year of having  online events, BEREC is excited to meet in person again! Registration to participate in the BEREC Stakeholder Forum on 28 October 2021 in Brussels is now OPEN.

The major BEREC annual event will take place in DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels City hotel and will have a new format. BEREC invites stakeholders to meet and greet the Working Group Co-chairs in the morning. The “Meet & Greet” sessions are planned as informal meetings, during which the registered stakeholders will have a possibility to exchange ideas over a coffee talk about challenges in the sector. The BEREC Working Group Co-chairs will have four 30-minute rounds of meetings with a maximum of 20 participants. After a break, a new group of participants will gather to meet the Co-chairs.

The Meet & Greet sessions will start at 09:30 CEST and last until noon. To participate in the Meet & Greet sessions, the stakeholders have to register and identify both the group and time slot in which they would be interested.

After lunch, BEREC invites all stakeholders to join the conference part of the BEREC Stakeholder Forum. The incoming BEREC Chair, Annemarie Sipkes (ACM, the Netherlands), will present the draft BEREC Work Programme 2022. Together with the BEREC Chair Michel Van Bellinghen (BIPT, Belgium) and the BEREC Chair for 2023, Ms Sipkes will reply to questions regarding BEREC’s work and its plans for the future. The participants will have the opportunity to follow the lively discussions and later engage during the Q&A sessions. A more detailed conference programme will follow soon.

Starting with a handshake and continuing with exchanging of ideas and discussions, BEREC needs to engage and cooperate with stakeholders to further improve the consistency and harmonised application of regulatory rules, thus enhancing its working methodology. The BEREC Stakeholder Forum will conclude with the networking reception.

The stakeholders are welcome to participate in the event physically. Participation is subject to prior registration. BEREC also ensures that stakeholders, who cannot travel can follow the livestreaming of the conference. The online platform will provide an opportunity to send questions to speakers.
