A convention centre in a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Small but oh-so-perfect. Bruges’s compact size really is its greatest asset. Here your delegates can enjoy exceptional venues, marvellous boutique hotels and the city’s many cultural attractions, which are all within walking distance of each other. The entire city centre is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bruges has a whopping 24 museums and a cornucopia of special venues where you can host your conference. How can you fail to be impressed by a welcome reception in the impressive Gothic City Hall? The city, which has about ten Michelin-starred restaurants and over 50 chocolate shops, is also the perfect place to pamper your delegates’ taste buds.

In short, this small scenic city, that is tucked away in a landscape with plenty of canals and whose historical and cultural heritage is second to none, has a lot to offer for your conference.
