Leaders Club International would like to thank all the participants, partners and all countries for the wonderful evening. Congratulations to the winners and Leaders Club Belgium for making this happen.
This time we left the bustle of downtown behind us and took a trip to Berchem. An upcoming area at the edge of town. We welcomed more than 50 (inter)national people in Antwerp for this trendtour: Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Ukraine, Russia and Turkey got to know Antwerp a bit better foodwise.
During the Leaders Club Awards in Paris, the yearly presidency was given to Belgium. Eric De Wagenaere became the new President of Leaders Club International. His job for the next year? Trendwatching and taking you all on this food journey without ending.
Congratulations Eric, we’re looking forward to the upcoming year!
This trendtour was a the perfect moment to get to know Paris from another perspective. Concept hopping all day to see new, and more classic projects in the neighborhood. Starting the day with a good breakfast and ending it with a tasty cocktail, that’s what we like!
During this international trendtour we had the perfect opportunity to discover the not-to-miss Nordic countries, which are experiencing an unprecedented dynamism in terms of gastronomy and foodservice. The two Nordic countries we visited were: Helsinki – the Finnish capital and Tallinn – the capital of Estonia after we crossed the Baltic Sea by ferry.
Thank you for joining us on this amazing trip!
