BENL meetup – Leuven

Meeting likeminded FIRE people is always great fun. That is why Mr Cheesy Finance and I setup up another meetup. 

This time, we aim for a 2 day meetup in Leuven.  Mark your calendars for the weekend of February 24 and 25, 2018. We will be meeting up in the beautiful city of Leuven in Belgium. You can join us one or 2 days.

This time around we are planning to make it into a weekend long event. As many of the Dutch (and other international visitors) will need to travel, the plan is to commence Saturday afternoon after lunch. We will conclude on Sunday afternoon, so there is sufficient time to travel home.

As per usual:

  • You are free to come and go as you please;
  • We will request the usual small fee to cover things like food, drinks and rental of the facilities/equipment. This usually boils down to around €10-15 per day (excluding breakfast/lunch/dinner!);
  • You are responsible for your own accommodation if you want to join for the full 2 days; and,
  • We strive to have the location(s) easily accessible by both car and public transport.

More details will be provided to all that register. Please take note, we are targeting a maximum of 40 people for this meetup on both Saturday 24 February and Sunday February 25.

What are we planning?

Not all details are clear just yet, but the general program for this weekend looks something like this.

Saturday February 24, 2018:

  • 13:00 – 14:00: Warm welcome and informal chats;
  • 14:00 – 18:00: Presentations and discussions (we are considering an afternoon about Dividend Growth Investing. For the discussions we are looking for your opinions, strategies, tips and tricks!)
  • 18:00 – 20:00: Dinner (local restaurant); and,
  • 20:00 – ??:??: Belgian BEER and other drinks + more informal chats.

Sunday February 25, 2018:

  • 10:00 – 12:00 Leuven City walking tour with Amber Tree Leaves as our tour guide;
  • 12:00 – 13:00 Brown bag lunch; and,
  • 13:00 – 16:00 Presentations and discussions about Permaculture and ethical investing.

  1. Hi ATL – Happy New Year!
    Would you consider opening the event up (say the presentations) to people who would like to attend virtually, using something like Skype video?
    That way FIRE enthusiasts who are too far away or cannot get there would be able to “attend”.

  2. Interesting, I’ll try to join for the 2 days (maybe not the full duration though)
    Looking forward to it, only time i could attend so far was at the Antwerp meetup, which was definitely worth it 🙂
