Apply to host a WCEF Studio

Want to engage your stakeholders in meaningful discussions on the circular economy, but a full 2+2 days’ programme sounds a bit too heavy? We have a solution for you: host a WCEF2024 Studio!

WCEF Studios are local events that deliver all or part of the main forum programme while incorporating additional elements, live or online. Studios can be held around the world during the annual main event or in the days following it.

This year, WCEF Studios can be held from 15 to 26 April. They give an easy access to participants who are not able to join the forum in person in Brussels but who still want to engage in stimulating circular discussions . In addition to screening top content from WCEF2024, studios offer a chance to discuss circular economy topics, build on skills you already have—or learn something entirely new.

Since 2021, dozens of WCEF Studios have been organised by universities, financial institutions, corporations, associations, NGOs, media, the public sector and organisations around the world.

WCEF2024 Studios can be organised by showing either live streams or recordings of the main forum’s sessions. When organised during the main event, additional local programmes can take place during the breaks or before or after the main event’s programme. Additional elements can include, for example, local keynotes, roundtable or group discussions, workshops and networking.

Studios can be organised in English or, when boosting the local circular economy community, in other languages. The host is responsible for all practicalities and expenses related to organising the event, including the venue, virtual event platform, local programme content, invitations, registrations, marketing and communications, as well as possible translations.
