Welcome to Gibbels Public Affairs, a young and dynamic office that offers strategic, communication and lobby advice to companies and organisations that wish to build or strengthen their presence in Brussels or simply to find their way in the often complex EU environment.

Increasingly, companies and organisations become aware of the fact that the majority of all regulation affecting their business comes from Brussels. When a piece of legislation reaches the Member State, it is often too late to exert any meaningful influence. It is therefore crucial to be present at the very early stages of the EU decision-making process.

Through a solid network within the European Institutions as well as close links to a wide array of non-Institutional Brussels stakeholders, Gibbels Public Affairs will help you stay ahead by functioning as an early warning system to EU initiatives relevant to your organisation.

Being informed at an early stage means being able to intervene at the moments that count. Gibbels Public Affairs will help you determine your communication and lobby strategy, we provide tailored stakeholder mapping and arrange for access to EU decision-makers, relevant to your dossier.

With GPA as ‘your link to the EU’, you will always be one step ahead.
