An innovative and cultural diamond on the river Scheldt

Antwerp is a metropolis on a human scale. Large but navigable. Building on its history, but permanently innovative. Full of diversity, but always recognisable. You can experience every taste, style and colour here, benefit from a huge range of expertise, and encounter both thinkers and doers.

This global port on the River Scheldt once was the home of famous painters as the iconic Flemish Baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens and Sir Anthony van Dijck. Today conference delegates can admire their works in museums and churches throughout the city.

The gourmets among your delegates will be impressed by the many local delicacies and beautiful dinner venues in historic settings. With its thriving cultural scene, bustling trade and culinary gems, Antwerp offers the ideal setting for your next conference.
