The OPEN DAYS programme in Brussels will involve about 600 speakers from 30 different countries, including 24 EU Member States and Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Norway, Switzerland and Russia. They represent a large variety of regional, national and European institutions involved in regional policy and urban development: 25% represent national or regional ministries, another 25% regional and local development agencies and similar bodies and 20% come from European Commission services and other EU institutions. The remainder represent private enterprises, banks, universities and non-governmental organisations (NGO).

The countries with most speakers represented are Germany and the UK (40 each), Italy (36) and Poland (28). 30 speakers are either Members of the European Parliament or national/regional ministers or mayors. More than 120 speakers come from European institutions, most of them representing European Commission Directorate-Generals (regional policy; employment, social affairs and equal opportunities; enterprise and industry; transport and energy; information society and media; environment; fisheries and maritime affairs; internal market; research; education and culture).
