Cvent stands with you during the Coronavirus outbreak. A letter from CEO & Founder Reggie Aggarwal
Brussels is easy to reach by air and international and national rail and road. As a result, it's an ideal destination for events. The city also sees a considerable number of cross-border commuters travel in and out each day!
Brussels' great central location means that you can go anywhere in the capital very quickly. It's incredibly easy to move around in this compact city. If you’re staying near the city center, walking is a wonderful way to explore or to reach your event venue. 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, the cornerstone of the Brussels Expo group. With over 1 million square feet of flexible exhibition space, this leading event facility — 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 48,000 EU officials, diplomats, international business workers, and press correspondents, Brussels has the highest concentration of decision-makers who shape the lives of hundreds of millions of people. The city hosts all the major EU institutions and is home to a huge diplomatic corps and journalist community, as well as countless lobby groups. You can’t get any nearer to Europe’s policymakers than Brussels! But the city is also about business, with 1,700 international corporations operating Europe-wide from their base here, spawning a diverse business services sector.
Brussels also facilitates meaningful connections and networking with other associations, private partners, and public authorities.
