The theme of the 50th Brussels Girl Geek edition is spring, so it’s all about fresh starts and innovation. Even cleaning and decluttering can be just as much fun as an evening out with the girls as we proudly present a whole new ballgame: the Dyson DC36. Smooth engineering that might very possibly change your life.
How you ever wondered what the inside of a vacuum cleaner looks like? What is Ball Technology? What is Root Cyclone Technology? What will housing be about in the future? What are the newest trends in urban living Dyson tapped into to create this revolutionary product?
The event will be hosted by Dyson’s Maureen Soenen and co-presented by VJ, TV host and writer Nina de Man who will bring you up to speed with the latest trends.
Are you just dying to get up close and personal with a vacuum cleaner on a roll?
