The Convention Bureau of VISITFLANDERS is responsible for the promotion and development of Flanders & Brussels as a meeting destination. Our team has in-depth product knowledge and offers advice and guidance free of charge.

We provide tailor-made proposals and put you in contact with all the right suppliers on the market. Together with our local partners we organise site inspections and familiarisation trips to bring meeting planners to our wonderful destination. During these trips we not only allow you to enjoy the good life, but also give you a chance to experience our excellent hotels, restaurants, special venues, meeting venues, etc.

We want to convey our passion for our destination to the organisers of meetings, incentives & conferences.


Limburg is a region with centuries of interesting history and strong cultural traditions, but is also a region that is new in the meeting industry. That’s because of a major step that took place in recent years that was a bold commitment to sustainability. Coal mines and industrial plants in Limburg were closed and replaced with knowledge centers, turning the former buildings at the sites into state-of-the-art meeting facilities. This, together with the green nature, the large choice of social programs, the hospitality and the culinary lifestyle of the inhabitants makes Limburg a true hidden treasure in Belgium.

Why Bruges for conferences, meetings & events?

Bruges is a must-have-seen-once-in-a-lifetime kind of city. It is the most sustainable, safe and walkable city in Flanders. Its entire city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. All hotels and venues lie within walking distance in a unique historical setting.

Bruges boasts more than 3,300 rooms in 101 charming hotels from 1* to 5*. It offers also 2 convention centres right in the city centre, with a capacity of 1,250 pax: Site Oud Sint-Jan is a former medieval hospital and Concertgebouw Brugge is a contemporary high-tech architectural wonder.


Antwerp is the famous world capital of diamonds. Rich with history Antwerp is also hip and trendy. It’s the place to be to find art, design, contemporary architecture and fashion. The renowned Fashion Academy offers young designers a chance to grow and be creative.

Founded in the Middle Ages, the city has long standing culinary traditions. As a result, Belgium’s fashion capital is not only a great place to shop but also an excellent destination to eat out. Why not combine shopping and gastronomy and have your lunch in one of the city’s ‘cool’ concept stores!

Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp is Flanders’ newest and most spectacular meeting venue. It combines a historic setting with daring modern architecture and state-of-the-art technology. This exciting complex in the heart of Antwerp incorporates a multipurpose, glass- roofed atrium, a contemporary 2000-seat auditorium and some thirty meeting and seminar rooms for up to 2500 persons. It’s the ideal venue for your upcoming convention, congress or special meeting.
