We have learned that Brussels Furniture Fair, which takes place from 6 to 9 November in Brussels Expo, is saying goodbye to general manager Lieven Van den Heede. Van den Heede received his resignation on Friday 15 July.
The Board of Directors of the fair has not yet reacted to the decision, so it is anyone’s guess as to why Van den Heede, who worked for Brussels Furniture Fair for 16 years and succeeded Els van Pelt as general manager in 2015, is leaving. A successor is said not to be known yet. In a personal reaction, Van den Heede let us know that “the board of directors and I had a difference of opinion about where the fair should go”.
