Fashion, design, scenography... Across the country, municipalities, provinces, regions, museums, non-profit organizations or other public authorities award dozens of public contracts each year in these creative fields. These assignments can have a big impact on creative companies, you just need to know where and how to find them!

During this MAD workshop on Thursday, November 18, Bérénice Wathelet, lawyer at DLA Piper, and Danny Vrydag, deputy director Public Assets of the City of Brussels, will teach you how to tackle these public contracts.

This interactive and didactic day will help you discover more possibilities and opportunities within your field of expertise. It will also provide you with tools to develop a commercial strategy to maximize your chances of winning public contracts. How to approach a public project call? How and where can you find the public contracts that interest you? What are the points of interest when submitting an public project file and what mistakes should you avoid? Our two speakers will answer your various questions.
