Blog IPMS Belgium

This Blog is an online complement to the IPMS Belgium quarterly magazine, KIT. Its main aim is to allow for the publishing of reviews of new products graciously sent to us by various manufacturers and artisans and of reviews of new products purchased and/or tested by our members. Those are the type of reviews that we have been publishing in KIT for a very long time but it was felt that we needed another outlet, allowing us to publish faster, more regularly, more comprehensively and to a wider audience than can be done in a printed magazine.

Please find below our latest published reviews.
