DEVCO Day : Annual and internal staff meeting
The "DEVCO DAY" is the annual and internal staff meeting of DG DEVCO. In 2011, the fusion between DG DEV and DG AIDCO into one bigger DG DEVCO was celebrated. All the employees of DEVCO were invited to celebrate the results of the previous year and to be introduced to the challenges ahead. This session was particularly important as it was the occasion to introduce the new management team.
This meeting gathered 1,200 people in the Flagey building in Brussels. The plenary room was not large enough to accommodate everybody so extra rooms were equipped to allow the public to follow this seminar by live transmission. A live web streaming was set up for colleagues from overseas as well. This session included the Communication Award Ceremony which highlights the funded project with the best communication plan. This celebration closed with a dancing buffet thanks to the DEVCO band (whose musicians are internal staff) and a memorable DEVCO party. Fair trade products were served during the coffee break.
