Forum 2040 begins with information meeting for all candidates
The opening meeting of Forum 2040 took place on the evening of Thursday 22 June. All eligible candidates for the Forum 2040 were invited to attend this meeting. Brussels Airport Company briefly explained the Strategic Vision 2040 and also the further progress of Forum 2040. All participants were given the opportunity to ask questions at length during the meeting.
Brussels Airport has taken the initiative to start Forum 2040 because the airport believes in the value of an open dialogue where the opinion of everyone is respected and because the content of the discussions can reveal new information and insights about the Strategic Vision 2040 based on the various positions and so help the airport operator enrich and refine it.
Further progress of Forum 2040
At the end of August, an independent jury will choose 80 participants for the Forum 2040 from more than 230 candidates. When making their selection, the jury will ensure a balanced representation based on the motivation given by the candidates for participating in Forum 2040, their place of residence and their profile. In the autumn, in-depth dialogue sessions will be held on the topics of mobility, landside and airside development.
The Airport Business District must become a vibrant ecosystem of its own, where large companies mingle with start-ups. With room for biodiversity and greenery. With room for innovation and new activities.
As part of its Strategic Vision 2040, Brussels Airport Company has put together a Quality Board to provide guidance to the company in the conception and design of ambitious planning projects and of the airport’s public spaces.
