Voka Open Bedrijvendag

The first Sunday of October traditionally marks the biggest single-day event in Belgium: Voka Open Bedrijvendag! A day where entrepreneurs far and wide, small and large, are celebrated; interest is piqued; and jobs are found.

This Sunday – October 4th – they’ll blow out 30 birthday candles for what will become a truly special edition, in this current pandemic. Of course the necessary measures are taken to insure the health and safety of visitors and participants. In the current pandemic Voka Open Bedrijvendag therefor became a fully digital event this year!

But that surely won’t spoil the fun, as presenter Xavier Taveirne is ready to guide the visitors/viewers through five amazingly interesting companies all over Flanders. Flemish minister Hilde Crevits will kickstart the day at Roularta Media Group, for what promises to be a day full of interesting visits at noteworthy companies such as Skeyes, Belgische Marine, Politie Zone Rupel, Stokerij Rubbens, Bellewaerde and Belgisch Centrum voor Geleidehonden.

The visits can be followed through a livestream on www.openbedrijvendagvirtueel.be, where viewers can also ask questions during the virtual tours. In parallel with the Virtual Day, some fifty additional companies will be permanently open for a virtual tour on the website, which will stay online for at least one more year. What’s not to like?
