First edition of Transeo Conference

Three organizations active in SME transfer: SOWACCESS (Belgium), CRA (France) and MKBase (The Netherlands), organized in May 2009 in Spa (Belgium) the first European Conference on SME transfer to exchange good practices among professionals and see how business transfer is tackled in the different European and oversea countries. Private, public and academic experts took part in the first edition of the Transeo Conference.

In total, 200 participants from 18 countries attended the Conference.

The second objective of this first Transeo Conference was to confirm among European SME transfer professionals the relevance of setting up a European SME transfer association. The Conference attendees showed a clear desire to be part of the future association and 50% considered even becoming founding members of it.

In December 2010, Transeo AISBL (international non-profit association) was founded in Brussels (La Hulpe) on the occasion of its constitutive assembly.
