Brussels, Belgium Meeting Planning Overview

Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium, but it is also the capital city of the European Union. Due to this political influence, Brussels has become a central focus in economic development, with many global companies now choosing to operate out of the city. Along with a population of around 1.1 million people, Brussels is a central hub for economic, social, and cultural activity for the rest of the country and the continent as a whole – including that of meetings and conferences. In fact, the city hosts over 50,000 registered meetings, congresses, and exhibitions each year, and is conveniently positioned at the heart of Europe.

The city itself is compact, making it easy to explore by foot. A cost-effective public transportation system of metro trains, buses, and trams also makes it easy for meeting guests to reach key destinations, such as the Brussels Exhibition Centre or Brussels Expo. With over one million square feet of flexible exhibition space, this leading event facility and Belgium's largest exhibition center – can accommodate up to 2,000 people, and features an impressive selection of exhibition halls, auditoriums, and meeting rooms.

In addition to the Brussels Exhibition Centre, the city's Square-Brussels Meeting Centre spans several halls, auditoriums, and studio spaces, all located on the Mont des Arts, in the cultural heart of the city. Looking for a unique event venue? Museums, concert halls, sports centers, and even historic castles aren't off limits when it comes to event planning in Brussels.

With its role as administrative center for the European Union and focal point for the country's economy aside, Brussels is also a picturesque and popular tourist destination. Though Brussels is rather compact, it packs a punch when it comes to attractions, perfect for exploring after meetings.
