Brussels was chosen as the location for the joint PLG group 8th European Pharma Licensing Symposium back in October 2015 because of it’s central location, standard of suitable venues and excellent transport links to all parts of Europe. Following the shocking attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek Metro Station in March a serious review was undertaken a few weeks later to determine the safety for delegates and impact on the event itself, which takes place in September.

Guidance was sought from a number of local organisations who provided reassurances that security was being tightened in responses to the attacks, as it had across major cities throughout Europe. In parallel with this process we conducted a search of alternative locations that could offer availability, these included Dubrovnik, Lisbon, Rome and Vienna.

Our role was to advise our client (the PLG groups) on the current security situation, how this was expected to develop in the lead up to the event and detailed options if the decision was taken to change location. After careful consultation with the client the decision was taken that the event would remain in Brussels, subject to continual examination.
