AIDEX 2021- The Global Humanitarian Aid Event

The Confederation of Danish Industry and The Danish Embassy in Belgium invite you to exhibit at the Danish National Pavilion at AidEx 2021 – the world’s largest exhibition for humanitarian aid and development.

Each year more than 2,500 representatives of the humanitarian aid community from over 65 countries attend the AidEx event to exchange ideas and browse the latest solutions from the private sector. Attendees come from UN Agencies, the EU, Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, local and international NGOs, government and the private sector.

AidEx is an opportunity to show the aid and development community how
your company can help improve the efficiency and delivery of aid or make a
difference to those in need. Over 200 exhibiting organizations will take part
including logistics, communications, medical, shelter, W.A.S.H and technology
suppliers alongside international NGOs, associations and media. The AidEx
exhibition houses the full aid and development supply chain and is the
central marketplace for the community.


  • Position yourself in front of the professional aid community
  • Generate new leads
  • Demonstrate your products and services face-to-face
  • Raise brand awareness
  • Launch new products and services
  • Attract attention from global media
  • Benefit from an array of marketing services

The world is currently facing significant challenges posed by the pandemic
crisis. But the situation is improving across Europe, with business conditions
seeming to return to some sense of normality by November when AidEx will
take place.
Such events are needed now more than ever to bring relevant experts together, therefore AidEx will be taking place on 17 – 18 November with all national and global health and welfare guidelines to ensure that AidEx is run to the highest health and safety standards.

Participation in AidEx 2021 includes two elements: one focusing on the effective utilization of the Danish presence at the AidEx exhibition, the second focusing on building and developing international network at a Nordic Networking Reception.
AidEx is a two-day event, which encompasses a conference, an exhibition,
meeting areas, awards, networking and workshops. Its fundamental aim is to
engage the sector at every level and provide a forum for humanitarian aid professionals to meet, source, supply and learn. AidEx was created to help the international aid community engage the private sector in a neutral setting, drive innovation and support the ever-growing need for emergency aid and development programmes.

The first part of the campaign will be linked to the exhibition at AidEx on
17 – 18 November 2021 in Brussels. Here Danish companies will get the opportunity to be part of the joint Danish Pavilion exposing Danish solutions to an international audience.

  • Opening of the pavilion by the Danish Ambassador incl. a networking
    event where companies can invite partners and customers
  • Pre-arranged B2B activities
  • Promotional events to attract additional visitors to the Danish stand
  • Presence of organizers throughout the entire exhibition to support the
    Danish companies.

The second part of the campaign will consist of a Nordic Dinner Reception. The event, which has become a tradition for the Nordic participants, offers excellent international networking opportunities with customers and international development officials.
