JCI

What’s in it for me?

Every JCI member remembers his or her first conference. To guide Marie, there will be a first timer session before the conference officially start with the opening ceremony.

Marie’s perfect conference program will offer the first timer session, drinks with fellow first timers, the opening ceremony, company visits, keynote speakers, the trade show, business game, food workshops, supporting the national debating team, after parties, enjoying a morning run on the Brugse vesten, enjoy our famous chocolate and beers and enjoy the award show and gala night.

We advise Marie to get a good night’s rest before arriving. Because at almost every hour, there is something to do in Bruges! The first timer competition (explained in the first timer session) will guide her to see every element of the conference.

The international experience will be amazing and we hope that Marie will be triggered to engage in even more JCI activities in the future!
