Small cities, great experiences

What makes Flemish cities such a great location for your conference?

Small cities, great experiences. That perfectly sums up the experience of a Flemish city. There is much to experience in each of the cities, while these experiences are barely a stone’s throw from each other. In this regard, the Flemish cities differ thoroughly from cities such as London and Paris, where distances are considerably greater. And despite their proximity to each other and their common history, each city has its own DNA and charm.
