During this annual event, ALD presented its employees with the results of the past year, The objectives for the future and current market developments. The employees also had the opportunity to discover the new premises for the first time before the relocation.
Each year a guest from outside the company is invited. This year, this honour was given to Mark Herremans. Elected sports personality of the year 2002 by the Belgian press, Mark Herremans is one of the best motivational conference speakers. Given the changes and transformations taking place in the automotive industry, ALD Automotive wanted to underline the importance of reinventing oneself and bouncing back in order to maintain a presence in the sector.
For this particular evening, Mark Herremans revealed how adversity can be transformed into opportunity and how this can stimulate creativity, so that drawbacks can be approached as potential advantages. He explained that problems can end up being beneficial if we focus on the positive aspects and that teamwork can contribute to our success. A great future lies in wait for ALD Automotive therefore.
It was with great pride that EASI kicked off the year with an unforgettable and successful event that included awe inspiring acts and original activities for all ages. Our catering partner, Great Traiteur, pampered the attendees with extremely refined food during a glamorous gala dinner.
The entertainment was of an extremely high standard, thanks in part, to the amusing bubble-blowing act. The venue had been transformed into a carnival setting with a wide range of activities and treats to conquer the hearts of sweet tooths. Popcorn, toffee apples and candyfloss were some of the sweet delights that the participants were able to enjoy together with lots of fun and laughter during the numerous mini games. The participants went all out for a heavenly evening of entertainment and fun. The photo booth was put to enthusiastic use and on the dance floor everyone’s feet touched the floor.
It is clear that the software developers know how to organise a party and how to bring it to life with the right proportions of glitter and glamour!
The goal of the Manager of the Year award, organised by Trends and Kanaal Z, is to reward the most inspiring HR professional over the past 12 months.

The 350 attendees and representatives of the partners agreed that the new HR Manager of the Year, Peter Michiels, had done a fantastic job! He closed this thoroughly enjoyable evening with an inspiring speech.

MICE Party was back with a bang! This year’s edition of MICE Party was fully booked! 900 people attended the event that was taken to the next level!
No less than 900 people from the event industry came together to enjoy nice drinks, delicious food and great entertainment in a completely transformed venue. Positive vibes, networking and mostly a whole lot of fun were key. It was the perfect opportunity to see the colleagues outside of work and to discover the Event Lounge, which has recently been completely renovated. The dynamic duo, AKA the MICE Brothers, Erik Wood and Olivier Wauters chose our venue to host their incredible event last Thursday. This edition’s theme was tropical in anticipation of spring and summer. The winter jackets were put away and the sunglasses were taken out!
