Two Belgian event agencies, Event Masters and Borealis, have announced they are to merge.

The agencies will operate under the new name Event Masters Bruges, to offer complete event services including team building, tailor made events, destination management and incentives. The new company will employ 20 staff members and 50 freelancers.

Bert Knuts, of Event Masters, said: “Our companies share the same passion for events and our industry experience is perfectly complementary and mutually reinforcing. The merger allows Event Masters to offer its total service package in the western part of Belgium. And thanks to Borealis’ international experience and field knowledge, we’ll strengthen our position in Bruges."

Dries Jacobus, of Borealis Bruges, added: “Our personalities and company cultures are well aligned. And we both attach great importance to a personal, tailor-made approach to create original and memorable experiences.”

Also in Belgium, Brussels Airport has reopened this week, operating at 20 per cent capacity, two weeks after the terrorist attack on the Belgian capital which killed 32 people.
