4Instance is the leading organiser of events for the public sector in Belgium

4Instance: network for public-affairs management

4Instance, founded in 1996 in Brussels, is an independent organisation, having established itself as the ideal forum for today's modern public management with its main focus on ICT, HRM, organisation, finances, communication, etc.

4Instance combines the eMagazine, the public sector congress, the Whitepapers, the Public sector fair, the conferences, the workshops and executive events.

4Instance pays special attention to all aspects of management within the public sector. From the very beginning it involves the public management in all its activities. Innovation always plays a central role.

Building bridges between public institutions, companies and academia ...
4Instance is a dynamic and creative forum for people who hold influential posts in the worlds of administration, politics, the business community, and scientific and social ranks.

This central forum is a strategic point pivoting around new user-friendly and flexible ideas. These ideas can build bridges between the government bodies, the academic world, and the business community. This means that the 4Instance promotes PPPs (Public and Private Partnerships).

Interactivity
4Instance reaches public managers through the website, the magazine, and the conferences which are all also linked to the Public Sector Fair.
For instance, via the programme of a conference, you can click on a stand.
Via an article of the magazine, you can click on a stand of an administration, or a stand of a business.
Via the stands, conversely, there are also links to magazine articles, whitepapers, and presentations at our conferences.

To this end, 4Instance maintains close ongoing contacts with relevant international experts: academics, public managers, entrepreneurs, etc. These experts regularly share their expertise and know-how with attendees at dedicated 4Instance events.

The monthly 4Instance online magazine offers articles on current relevant management topics like ICT, HR, organization, finance, marketing, etc.
4Instance eMagazine
20 years after the first printed publication of the magazine, 4Instance publishes the "4Instance eMagazine". Not just a newsletter, but a real magazine. Moreover, the new option also provides the opportunity to glean some information.

The magazine can be read as a regular magazine, or you just read article after article. In addition, readers can quickly find all articles on a particular topic in the archive. Since 1995, 4Instance has focused on practical experiences. It is therefore a magazine by and for public servants.

Public servants/government managers: share your experiences!
As a public servant or government manager, would you like to publish an article on a specific topic or on work experience? Do you have a fact you would like to share? Please contact us, and we will certainly get in touch with you.

The Public Sector Fair

   The Public Sector Fair

The Public Sector Fair is open to administrations and businesses wishing to share their services, experiences and references in the form of a virtual stand.
Bringing both businesses and administrations together allows them to share best practices in an environment of trust.

Presentation

The Public Sector Fair tackles topical issues, and offers visitors a wide array of knowledge, inspirations and answers.

At the online Public Sector Fair, public directors, leaders, and decision-makers as well as professionals will find a wealth of information and networking opportunities under one roof.
The Public Sector Fair helps public sector professionals in senior or middle management to find solutions as well as ideas to solve problems in their day-to-day work.

Virtual Environment

The fair is organised in a virtual environment - very similar to a physical fair - with 15 buildings and a variety of halls dedicated to various current topics and temporary events.

Organised as a physical fair, this virtual fair bundles the assets of a professional and intergovernmental gathering in person: making appointments, obtaining documentations, direct talks, examples of best practices and the advantages of the Internet: it is always open, the information is regularly updated, visitors have free access, it saves time and money.
