The Belgian Connection Association: what is our purpose, what do we offer?

The Belgian Connection (a non profit association) has the objective to promote the Belgian cultural and social presence in Romania. The vehicle to achieve that objective is the monthly networking event during which we invite the Belgian, Romanian and other international communities.
Next to the networking mixers, we organise events of different natures: cultural information, culinary, a concert or a performance.
The Mixers and events are meant to give you the opportunity to recurrently meet your newly acquainted network in a friendly environment.
