HLC & L'Éventail join forces to become HLCÉ


From the beginning of May, all the activities of HLC (housed at High Level Communication) and L'Éventail (formerly Berpress) will merge into a joint entity: HLC & L'Éventail, or HLCÉ.

With its magazines, digital media and B2B and B2C events, HLCÉ aims to establish itself as a leading Belgian group in the field of high value-added publishing and communication, targeting a high-end audience. The company's strong roots in the South are set to carry over to the North, thanks to the contribution of entrepreneur Christian Dumolin (Koramic Investments) from Coutrai. François Didisheim, founder of High Level Communication, will head up the new group, which has around twenty employees.

As a result, HLCÉ will have a plethora of assets at its disposal: a dozen titles, including The Address Book, L'Événement, L'Éventail, La Gazette Diplomatique, Gentleman & Ladies, Lobby, Next2Be, Play Golf, Play Tennis and Zoute Paper, a generalist website and around forty annual events, including the L'Éventail conferences, the Lobby Awards and Zoute Approach Day.

All the details are available on Retrievermedia.be.
