It's in the north of Belgium, in the centre of Western Europe, with nearby airports so your delegates can easily get there, from wherever they are in the world. Train connections from cities such as London, Paris and Amsterdam are excellent, and even from Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt and Prague you'll be here in no time.

In Flanders, distances are short. You can easily get from city to city by public transport. Many of the venues are located in the city centre, making public transport there a fast, easy, and sustainable solution.
