General Information about Brussels for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals
Brussels is the capital city of Belgium with a population of 1.2 million. It is located in the north-central part of the country in one of the most urbanized regions of Europe, between London, Paris, the Rhine-Ruhr and Randstad. Brussels is home to many national institutions including the Royal Palace, where the royal family resides, the Palace of the Nation, the seat of the Belgian Federal parliament, or the Palace of Justice, where the Court of Cassation is located. Since World War II, Brussels also became the administrative center of various international organizations, such as the European Union (EU), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), or the World Customs Organization. The city’s architecture is highly eclectic, combining the Gothic, Baroque, and Louis XIV styles with the modern and postmodern styles of, for example, the EU institutions. Brussels has over 80 museums, including the Royal Museums of Fine Arts and the Magritte Museum, as well as a large number of universities, including the world-famous ones Vrije Universiteit Brussels and Université Libre de Bruxelles. The city is also famous for its local waffles, chocolates, French fries and extremely strong and tasty beer.
The City as a Conference Destination
Brussels, Belgium is one of the largest conference centers in the world, probably also due to the presence of EU and other international organizations on its territory. The city’s most notable conventions focus on economy and finances, business, tourism, technology and life sciences. Some of the most important conferences taking place in 2018 include: Digital Finance Europe, the 5th People & Workforce Analytics Seminar, the World Summit on Accessible Tourism, the SRI Study Launch by the European Sustainable Investment Forum, and the SLAS Europe Conference & Exhibition (which will host over 1,000 academics, scientists and technologists from all around the world).
Brussels Food Options for Conference Delegates
There are various highly rated tourist attractions in Brussels which you should visit after your business conference. The city’s main square, located in the Brussels Old Town, and known as the Grand Place is an impressive architectural site and one of the most well preserved squares from Europe. The most important building in this square is the Royal Palace, the official residence of Belgium’s royal family. Another famous attraction is Belgium’s Royal Museum of Fine Arts, which is one of the largest museums in Europe. However, the most notorious and visited tourist attraction in Brussels remains the so-called Manneken Pis, the small statue of a little boy urinating, dating back to 1388 and deemed by locals as ‘the oldest citizen of Brussels.’
