Organizers

The companies and institutions exhibiting on the Belgian Pavilion traditionally offer a representative insight of the country’s know-how in the field of Smart Cities.

International Trade Agencies from the Belgian Regions of Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia are therefore present at the event to support our exhibitors and answer all enquiries from foreign authorities or potential investors and partners.

Wallonia Export-Investment (AWEX) is the institution in charge of developing the international economic relations of Wallonia, Belgium. Through a personalized approach, AWEX is committed to strengthening Wallonia’s position as the premier gateway for international investors seeking success in the heart of Europe. AWEX also supports Walloon companies in every step of their international endeavors.

This includes exports, technological partnerships, and development abroad. AWEX relies on a network of 400+ employees in nearly 100 countries around the world with 10 global hubs, including Barcelona, dedicated to the Digital Economy.

Together we are always ready to support you in your approach.
