Transeo Summer Summit 2023 - Charleroi, Belgium

In June 2023, more than 80 intermediaires from all around the world gathered in Charleroi, in the heart of Wallonia, to discuss various topics about business transfers and acquisitions. How ESG factors impact businesses in their M&A strategy; how to advise companies properly about ESG; the family governance and how to implement a family constitution; and how valuation multiples evolved the last decades. This Transeo Summer Summit was the opportunity for Transeo Members, but also for special guests to discover the friendly atmosphere of the Transeo Community, with interesting insights, exchange of good practices and deal making, but also networking moments and informal discussions.

Transeo Summit 2022 - Paris, France

100 experts in transfers and acquisitions of companies gathered in Paris around the topic of international build-ups.

What is a build-up strategy and when to use it? How to finance it? How to find suitable targets? How does the EU support build-up operations? What does the academics say about international build-up?

The high-level speakers of the 2022 edition of the Transeo Summit answered these questions with interesting insights from all over the world: from France to Canada, Germany, Belgium or the Netherlands.
