Cancelled: Decision 2020: The US Presidential Race after Super Tuesday
Please note that this event has been cancelled for the time being.
In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus, AmCham Belgium has decided to postpone the event to a future date. If you purchased a ticket, you will be refunded via Eventbrite. If you registered for the event, we will send you a new invitation as soon as we confirm a new date for this event.
November 3, 2020: on both sides of the Atlantic, this is a date to be marked on the calendar. The race has already begun. For the next 11 months, the whole world will be watching the US presidential election. On the one hand, President Trump is gearing up for re-election, while on the other, the Democratic candidates face a long road to the party’s nomination. What can we expect from the election campaign in the run up to the November vote? Where do the candidates stand on the issues that matter to voters? In the aftermath of Super Tuesday, when many key states hold their primaries and caucuses, we will hear from the Democrats Abroad and the Republicans Overseas – bring your own questions!
For US citizens in Belgium, this is an opportunity to participate in the debate and share views and concerns about their home country. For non-Americans, this event represents a way to understand what are the main actors and issues at stake. For both US and non-US citizens from all backgrounds and ages, this is a unique opportunity to actively express their ideas and get concrete answers to their questions on an election that will impact the whole world. Moreover, both the Democrats Abroad and the Republicans Overseas will provide the opportunity to register to vote to any US citizen attending the event. Register here.
