On fire for Fire Brigades Congress - Dazzle Events


On fire for new edition of Fire Service Congress

Campus Vesta in Ranst was gearing up for a new edition of this year’s Fire Service Congress: Back2TheFuture. The multidisciplinary training centre for professional safety training welcomed around a thousand visitors and numerous speakers over two days. Dazzle Events guided the working group by providing structure and expertise and logistical support.

Volunteer and professional firefighters from all corners of the country

The Fire Brigades Congress is an initiative of the Fire Brigades Association Flanders, Network Fire supported by the Campus Vesta training centre. Two days a year, they aim to put all volunteers and professional firefighters in the spotlight. The event has international allure with visitors from all over Belgium and the Netherlands, and foreign guest speakers.

More than 70 workshops and keynotes took place in the site’s permanent buildings and exercise complexes, while a real catering village was set up outside and a 1,500m2 tent covered the fair. Both for lunch and dinner, guests could fortify their inner man with a walking dinner. Chairman of the Flanders Fire Brigades Association Hans Clarysse looks back with satisfaction: “Dazzle Events was very accessible and approachable. No difficult words, but to the point. The team immediately took the bull by the horns and made sure we worked in a structured way. A great collaboration that is definitely worth repeating!”

Internal working group under the guidance of Dazzle Events

The organisers of the Fire Service Congress stepped to Dazzle Events with the request to guide them during the preparation of the event and on the day itself. Whereas Dazzle Events often develops complete concepts and pulls the strings from start to finish, we are also happy to take on an advisory role where we can share our experience and knowledge with a passionate internal working group. “As firefighters, we are sometimes quirky and like to do things our own way. Dazzle Events offered us a fresh perspective on our internal organisation and working group, which was definitely a great asset. The team was particularly enthusiastic and motivated, very nice to work with,” testifies Filip Corselis, responsible for the Fire Brigades Congress.

Dazzle Events first studied the current functioning of the various parties. Based on our initial insights, we provided a structure for the meetings, supported the internal communication and gave advice on deadlines and planning. Thanks to our experience with complex logistical processes, we were also able to support the organisation of the Fire Brigades Congress in terms of logistics and help out where necessary. In short, it was an intensive collaboration with the organisers!

Engage a professional to organise your event

Do you want to keep the organisation of your event in your own hands, but need an experienced, external partner to support you where necessary? Then Dazzle Events is the perfect party. Entrust us with the tasks that seem too complex or that you would rather not do yourself. We do not have to organise your entire event from A to Z. We can, for example, take care of the communication process or follow up and adjust the entire project on a regular basis.
