DADA to Brussels for DIA Europe 2022

April 5, 2022

After two years of restrictions, it was a huge pleasure for DADA to attend the DIA Europe 2022 Conference from 29 – 31 March in Brussels, Belgium!

Four of DADA’s employees – Managing Partners Angela van der Salm and Joanna Mania, PV associate Chun-Fung Lung and RA Consultant Miranda van Bodegom – traveled ‘south’ from the Nijmegen office to visit Belgium’s (and Europe’s!) capital and represent DADA in the exhibition hall of the SQUARE Brussels Meeting Centre.

In short, DIA Europe 2022 aimed to drive insights into action by connecting key policy discussions to real-world knowledge. This was achieved through exciting sessions, exhibitions, short courses, great networking sessions, and many more! With the new DIA app, it was easier than ever to exchange contact information by scanning personal QR codes, discovering someone’s availability, and scheduling meetings! Accommodating all those who did not yet feel comfortable enough to journey to Brussels, it was this year also possible to join for sessions online, videocall other attendees, and look at ePosters.

Although the number of participants was a bit lower than usual and the venue was therefore somewhat smaller, we were delighted to get back to in-person events and be able to network with people in a semi-formal setting. And networking we did; meeting all kinds of interesting people who stopped by DADA’s booth at stand C01, as well as visiting all the other exhibitors ourselves. We even held a raffle, handing out DADA gadgets to the lucky winners!

With our splashing red colors, it was difficult to miss our booth! Should you have been at Brussels but did not manage speaking with us, and you have questions about what DADA can do for you? Do not hesitate to send us an email or contact one of us via LinkedIn!

A big thank you to all of you who were there for this wonderful week! We hope to see you all in Basel next year for DIA Europe 2023, the 35th anniversary edition!
