Program

The goal is to maximize the number of visitors from both countries. The program must have some recognizable aspects, but it is equally important to offer an inspiring program through workshops, trainings, presentations and company visits. After the program, participants should feel like they have been part of a historical NC.

Friday October 22nd 

On Friday, JCI Zeeuwsch-Vlaanderen wil organise the 29th edition of their annual B2B event, the BO2, JCI members can attend the event via the early-bird passe-partout, a special B2BORRELEN ticket or by sponsoring the event.

BO2 stands for "Business Opportunity". In 2021 we will celebrate the 29th anniversary of the largest network event in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Our mission is to stimulate entrepreneurship, innovation and connecting Zeeuws-Flemish entrepreneurs. Subjects that are on the cutting edge of reality and the future are expressed yearly in this grand setting. The visitors are traditionally received with Zeeland-Flemish hospitality. After enjoying delicacies prepared by the local catering industry, an inspiring, short but powerful program follows. After the substantive part, it’s time for some fun with bands, DJ’s and drink. Entrepreneurial Zeeuws-Vlaanderen is an annual part of this spectacle and we predict that our JCI friends from the Netherlands and Belgium will have a great time as well if they decide to attend the event!

Apart from the yearly network event, there will also be a welcome drink for all Jaycees. This will be included in the Passe-Partout ticket, but it’s also possible to book a separate ticket for this. The welcome drink will start at 8pm and drinks and bites are included till 11pm. The afterparty of the network event will most likely take place at the same venue, so we can’t assure you that you’ll be in bed early……

Saturday October 23rd 

On Saturday morning we start with company visits in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and its surroundings. There will be a lot of different activities in the morning and the afternoon. This includes trainings, key-notes, workshops, cross-cultural parts, culinary activities and really interesting presentations. As soon as parts of the programme are confirmed, we will communicate these via the website, newsletters and our socials, so make sure you stay connected!
After the morning sessions we will have a short lunch break before the GA’s will start.

On Saturday afternoon, the GA for both The Netherlands and Belgium will be held simultaneously at two different locations / rooms. During the GA’s, we will also organise some side activities. After the GA’s we will have a few drinks and some small bites till 5pm.
After the drink everyone will have time to dress up for the gala night! From 7pm we will have a great party including dinner, music, surprise acts and so much more! All drinks and dinner is included in the tickets. We will make sure Belgium and Holland connect like never before!

Apart from the normal program, we will organise special events for our well appreciated senators and our beloved children.

Some program teasers we can already share with you;

  • A wonderful trip on a tugboat from the port of Ghent to Terneuzen with a workshop and a Burgundian snack in the meantime.
  • A visit to one of the largest employers in the Netherlands
  • A Michelin* lunch at a special location to enjoy the amazing food from our area
  • Gain inspiration from companies that work across borders
    So, we’ll be pushing boundaries!

Sunday October 24th

On Sunday we will evaluate the Saturday program, especially the night. This will be done during a recovery brunch, after the brunch, when we are feeling great again, we will end the weekend with a swinging Thé Dansant, for those of you who are unknown with this concept, make sure you are there (and maybe take the Monday morning off….)!!
