Our association and its members benefit from various partnerships with other associations and companies from Strasbourg and other parts of the European Union.
Partnership with the German Parliamentary Association
The European Parliamentary Association maintains close contacts with its “German sister”, the German Parliamentary Association (DPG), which has its seat in Berlin and brings together the members of the Bundestag.
The APE was, indeed, created on the model of the German Parliamentary Association, and, even if during the years it developed its own specificity, the two associations keep on sharing the main aim, i.e. fostering a dialogue beyond political divisions.
The General Secretariats of the APE and the DPG meet on a regular basis and the two associations are engaged in the organisation of some common events.
Partnership with Restaurants of Strasbourg
The APE offers its members the opportunity to benefit from a 10% discount in 7 restaurants of Strasbourg.
This is a particularly interesting offer for MEPs and diplomats, as it is extended also to visitors groups, who can access to special price menus.
For more information about this offer, contact our General Secretariat.
Partnership with the “Galeries Lafayette”
The members of the European Parliamentary Association and their assistants can benefit from a 10% discount in the fashion store Galeries Lafayette in Strasbourg.
Moreover, they have access to personal fitting rooms, can use for free the personal shopper service, and have right to express alterations and free purchase delivery.
Galeries Lafayette also sponsors some events of the APE, as, for instance, the Christmas Party 2016.
Partnership with the distillery “Distillerie Massenez”
Since 2016 the Alsatian distillery Distillerie Massenez sponsors the organisation of some events of the European Parliamentary Association, by offering a tasting of its special spirits to our guests.
More precisely, Distillerie Massenez has so far contributed to the organisation of: our Garden Party 2016, the dinner debate “The Transatlatic Relationship after US elections”, the “Days of Slovakia” and our Christmas Party 2016.
Our catering service “Chez Soi”
For the organisation of their events in the villa of the APE, the members of the European Parliamentary Association can access at special tariffs to the catering service Chez Soi.
