Updated: Jan 9, 2020
Before choosing the right venue for your event in Brussels or anywhere else, first you need to decide on the type of venue that would best fit your needs. Conference venues come in all shapes and sizes with varying facilities and budgets.
These are the types of venues you could choose from:
Conference centers: They are typically modern and purpose-built. They may have both auditoriums with fixed furniture and conference rooms without fixed furniture. The two main ones in Brussels are The EGG and The Square. The Square is the largest purpose-built conference in central Brussels. It is modern, rather prestigious and has a capacity of around 2500 people.
Hotels: Many hotels have conference facilities. The upside is that you are also able to offer accommodation and catering.
Special venues: They could be museums, banks, offices and other unusual premises. There you need to bring everything yourself, starting from furniture, decoration, AV equipment to catering.
EU Institutions and similar: The European Parliament and the European Economic and Social Committee have a large number of meeting rooms. However, you would need connections (a host) to book the venue for you.
