A modern venue in a medieval city

The Bruges Meeting and Convention Centre (BMCC) was designed and built by Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, winner of the 2011 Pritzker Prize, in collaboration with META Architectuurbureau. The building combines clean lines and warm materials to exude a friendly, welcoming feel. And despite its distinctive character, it effortlessly blends into its surroundings: the historic centre of Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As you enter the BMCC, you step into the 4500 m2 Expo Hall: the biggest event space in Bruges, with room for 2,500 people. On the upper floors you’ll find a 516-seat auditorium with a foldable grandstand, plus 12 light and airy meeting rooms to choose from. On the top floor is a catering area for 500 guests. It gives access to a rooftop terrace with breathtaking views over the nearby centre of Bruges. So nearby, in fact, that your guests can easily discover it on foot.

Easily accessible, highly sustainable

You may be interested to know that BMCC is easily accessible for people with disabilities. As a matter of fact, it was the first event venue in Flanders to be awarded the coveted M+ label for accessible meeting facilities.

Organising your event at the BMCC is a highly sustainable choice. The green roof on the building buffers rainwater, purifies the air and regulates the indoor temperature. In addition, you can count on green energy thanks to heat pumps and solar panels, allowing BMCC to charge electric cars in the underground car park. The products during an event are also ordered from local suppliers.

Oh, and one more thing: on the BMCC’s green roof are two hives that house as many as 100,000 bees. The aptly named BeeMCC honey they produce makes the perfect gift for speakers and other VIP guests.
