AidEx and Development2030 were held in Brussels on November 17-18, just 4 days before Belgium and some other EU countries introduced more special measures to prevent large gatherings and counter the further spread of Covid. Every effort had been taken to keep participants safe as they took part in Europe’s only physical events for the aid and development sector during 2021. With 1,262 on site attendees over the two days, the show felt really busy. There was a significant buzz of excitement as professionals from the sector came together to meet each other in person for the first time in almost two years. Two conferences were held to consider further reductions in the space for civil society and the impact of Covid-19 on achieving the UN SDGs. 22 different sessions were held with more than 60 speakers and a myriad of different workshops and ancillary meetings also took place throughout the two days.
