Bruges, where heritage meets innovation

Small but oh-so-perfect. Bruges’s compact size is its greatest asset. The city, tucked away in a landscape with plenty of canals, lush green parks and gardens, and whose historical and cultural heritage is second to none, has a lot to offer for your conference.

The city centre is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, your delegates enjoy exceptional venues, marvellous boutique hotels and many cultural attractions, all within walking distance of each other.

Exquise Michelin-starred restaurants and trendy foodie hotspots next to the world famous chocolate and beer corners make Bruges also the perfect place to pamper your delegates’ taste buds. Speaking about taste: offer your delegates a welcome reception in the impressive Gothic City Hall. An experience they will remember for a long time!
