On 13 and 14 May, the Sports & Entertainment Technology Club, the Energy Technology Club and the Building & Infra Technology Club organised an economic mission to Paris in the context of Paris 2024 (Summer Olympics) and Grand Paris (major infrastructure and energy project). More than 60 members were able to establish direct contacts with the decision-makers of the projects.


After a joint seminar with Engie/Tractebel, the members of the Energy Technology Club were able to meet Total, Doris Engineering, TechnipFMC, and Framatone.
On this occasion, members of the Energy Technology Club could obtain insider information on their activities, their current projects, as well as the contacts needed to become suppliers to these important customers.

On Monday afternoon, members of the Sports & Entertainment Technology Club met with the Director of International Relations and the Technology Advisor of the OCOG (Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games) in Paris 2024. A meeting organized by François de Kerchove d'Exaerde, Ambassador of Belgium to France and Monaco, at the Belgian Embassy, followed by a beautiful reception at his home. The next day, a meeting was organised with Benoît Piguet - Director of Institutional Relations at SOLIDEO - Company for the delivery of Olympic works.

The following day, a meeting with Benoît Piguet - Director of Institutional Relations at SOLIDEO (Société de livraisons des ouvrages olympiques) - was planned. During these meetings, the members presented the very best of Belgian sports technology.

The Building & Infra Technology Club has concentrated on 2 large architectural firms: PCA-Stream & Agence Jean-Paul Viguier et associés to present new technologies and to join these offices, which is particularly difficult for a subcontractor. We also met a Vinci Construction Manager who was looking for Belgian suppliers for their multiple projects. He will return to Belgium at the end of September to enter into new partnerships.

This mission brought together no less than 45 Agoria member companies, an opportunity for the 60 participants to also extend their network during these 2 days.
