    Other financial info

    Grayling has taken a wide, inclusive view of what interest representation and lobbying includes (covering active representation of interests but also monitoring, as well as events and press relations linked with the EU political agenda).

    We have however excluded from our list of clients those for whom we provided Belgian Public Relations services or media relations targeting individual Member States or other countries.

  • EU Structures

    Groups (European Commission)

    none

    Groups (European Parliament)

    Grayling organised for the Mission of South-Korea a "Roundtable discussion on the situation in the Korean Peninsula" on 19 October 2022, at 20:00 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The event was hosted by Lukas Mandl, MEP.

    Communication activities

    We produce a number of publications that analyse current affairs and EU policy.

    We also run a blog "The EU Lobby" (theeulobby.eu) covering the latest developments in Brussels and the EU Institutions.

    Finally, we also organise and host regular events on topical issues, upcoming EU Presidencies, and our own initiatives.

    Other activities

    For most of the clients listed below, Grayling Brussels provides EU public affairs services which range from simple monitoring and political intelligence to strategic advice and the support of advocacy campaigns helping our clients defend their interests in a wide range of policy sectors (transport, energy, environment, trade, health, consumers, agriculture, ICT etc).

    We also advise our clients on their European communications strategy and on how to increase their visibility with the EU-Brussels media.
