In an interview following the 2018 EANS congress in October, Michaël Bruneau, President of the 18th European Congress of Neurosurgery, clinical director at Brussels' Erasme Hospital and a visit.brussels ambassador, reveals the winning recipe for a successful large-scale congress: a dedicated local committee, an attractive destination and the efficient support of the convention bureau’s team.

© Thomas Hauss

our support

Successfully organising an international congress while working full-time is possible, and worthwhile!


The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies Congress is an annual pan-European scientific congress and one of the most important scientific meetings for neurosurgeons. It aims to provide the latest developments to neurosurgeons and scientists in the field.

Why was Brussels chosen? What are its advantages over another destination? A tender to host the 2018 international Congress in a country was launched by the EANS. Brussels' bid was prepared by the BSN (Belgian Society of Neurosurgery), together with the support of visit.brussels. The bid contained many positive points and the BSN was awarded the organisation of the Congress in Brussels for several reasons: • Brussels is easily accessed from all over the world • The Brussels Convention centre is magnificent and ideally located (right in the city centre and within reach of all the city’s amenities) • Brussels has a huge accommodation offer

our objective with the pleasingly high number of 1,700 participants attending the congress.

What is your opinion on the help and support that you have received from visit.brussels? The visit.brussels team supported us from the start and all through the bidding process. They not only helped us to prepare the bid and our candidature, but two members of the visit.brussels team were also present during the selection meeting and participated actively in answering specific questions by members of the EANS international committee. There is no doubt that their professionalism helped the Belgian Society of Neurosurgery's bid win the right to organise the congress! It didn’t stop with the bidding process either! visit.brussels provided us with strong organisational, structural, promotional and financial support throughout the entire process, from preparations for the event to the end of the congress.

You are a renowned neurosurgeon and research scientist and you have a full-time job. How easy (or difficult) was it to organise the congress?

What was the main challenge for the 2018 edition of the Congress? How did you resolve it?

It was a huge task. The EANS team gave considerable support to the scientific committee, and AIM, the Professional Congress Organiser provided invaluable help from an organisational point of view.

Like many committees, our concern was to attract as many neurosurgeons as possible to attend the congress. Thanks to the strong scientific content and the overall advantages of Brussels, we achieved

The Brussels Convention Centre is also an ideal location. It is easily accessible and has multiple possible set-ups and meeting spaces that can accommodate up to several thousand people.

What three qualities most appeal to you about Brussels? • Its friendliness • Its cultural wealth • Its public transport network

What did your participants think of the EANS social events they experienced in Brussels? All the participants were very pleased they attended! Those who were present at the networking dinner held in the Autoworld museum were impressed and loved the atmospheric lighting and being entertained among historic cars. It is a great location. The gala dinner at the Palais d’Egmont, a former stately home that today houses the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was also memorable for its elegance and sophistication!

What would you recommend to international delegates if they could only visit one place in Brussels? It would definitely be the Grand-Place, it's a must-see! For those who have a bit more time I would recommend they wander through Brussels’ historic streets and visit the city’s top museums. If a delegate has four hours to spare to get the feel of the city and wants to spend 100 euros, what would you suggest he do? Go to the Grand-Place, have a beer, eat a waffle, and buy some chocolates to take back home! ■

The Ambassador Programme

our support

To elevate you and your event to the next level

THE AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME AIMS AT BUILDING EXPERT NETWORKS, INCREASING THE VISIBILITY OF KEY CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE AND ATTRACTING INTERNATIONAL EVENTS TO BRUSSELS. Brussels has developed strongly as a meetings destination in the last few years. This is also thanks to talented and committed experts who have attracted major international conferences to Brussels and have, therefore, helped make our city and their field grow and shine on the international scene. They are our city's best Ambassadors!

“ At FoodDrinkEurope, we have frequent interactions with EU institutions, with member states and international representation offices and many other organisations across the food chain that are located here. Being close to the decision-making centre facilitates our work. Moreover, the city is also a great place to work, to meet and to hold conferences; there

is lots of choice - even for the biggest events.” Mella Frewen, Director General, FoodDrinkEurope (Brussels)

Within BOZAR’s magnificent Art Déco building, designed by the legendary architect Victor Horta, we are very pleased to be able to offer a variety of unique and stunning spaces and auditoriums (200-2200 seats) in which you can host your events. As a European House of Culture, BOZAR’s artistic program opens minds and builds bridges between people, places and ideas, a sure fire way to stimulate your guests to come, see and discover.

Autoworld is located in the exclusive buildings of the Parc du Cinquantenaire, one of the most beautiful locations of our architectonic heritage (built in 1880 and tells the car history from 1890 untill today). With its 250 beautifully preserved and restored cars, it is one of the most impressive collections of Europe and most probably also of the world ; this will definitely be an added value to all your events.

With new state-of-the-art technology installed in our landmark building, BOZAR’s brand new television studio offers clients and partners the ability to easily stream or record events from anywhere in the building, while making it simple to bring in outside content. Our new audio-visual technology installed in each theatre space helps make your life easier (and control technical costs). Our hi-speed WIFI, with the option to add VLAN 120 megabytes of reserved bandwidth and our BOZAR App with Digital Way finding technology enable seamless interactions with your guests. Ideally located in the historic city centre of Brussels, BOZAR is well connected by train and public transport, and easily accessible to both the centre and the European quartier.

Concert Noble is located in the heart of the European district. Imagine those balls choreographed with elegance and fluidity under an enormous chandelier, with their chassé-croisé dances and swirling waltzes. In tandem with those sumptuous balls, Concert Noble also hosted concerts, recitals and theatrical pieces. The King Leopold II assigned the mission to architect Henri Beyaert, who expressed all his great architectural talent. He created a suite of rooms arranged in a crescendo concept – larger and brighter the further you enter, up to an apotheosis: the impressive 400m2 Ballroom with its 15m high ceilings. The Concert Noble opened its doors with pomp in 1873. Concert Noble was the centre of culture and fashionable life. Amongst its guests were King Baudouin, the Shah of Iran, Lord Mountbatten, Monseigneur Forni and the Dalai-Lama. A venue dedicated to very special meetings! Concert Noble hosts receptions for up to 750 guests and seated dinners for up to 550 in the magestic rooms and Ballroom. Specialised in the operation and preservation of historical heritage buildings, Edificio enables you to create unique events in prestigious venues. Let our team guide you through the whole process. Specialised, reactive and closely-knit, our multilingual team will build your event with you – the way you want it – with advice, floral decoration, a variety of catering concepts, sound systems, entertainment and branding. Your Event Coordinator will work closely with you, from the first contact until your last guest has left.

A royal venue for your events

Prestigious spaces in the heart of Brussels !

In the heart of Brussels, at walking distance from the Grand’Place and the Sablon you can find the Bip, the visitor centre of the Brussels– Capital Region.

Opting for the BELvue museum and/or the Coudenberg as your choice of venue for your prestigious events, is opting to travel through more than nine centuries of history in the heart of Europe.

Bip offers a unique and prestigious setting for all your events : cocktails, press conferences, meetings, seminars, dinners… This neoclassical house opens its courtyard, receptions areas and a variety of new meeting rooms, all trendily decorated and appointed with the latest in design furniture and multimedia.

From the 12th century onwards, successive monarchs transformed a small fortified castle into a sumptuous residential palace, one of the most beautiful European palaces and one of Charles V’s main residences. This prestigious building was severely damaged by fire in 1731 and beneath the place Royal you will discover its remains, the archaeological site of the Coudenberg.

Prestigious or welcoming, our rooms accommodate groups between 10 and 250 people. Whether you are looking for a hushed atmosphere, a quiet work setting or an exceptional reception area, Bip has it all.

HARD ROCK CAFE BRUSSELS

Château de la Solitude is essentially RedFox Event’s playroom in which your ideas and our creative endeavors come to fruition. A unique three-story castle, it is equipped with five large neoclassical suites and two conference rooms that can be transformed depending on your goals for the space. Through the suite doors, you will discover our marble terrace and grass courtyard, well-suited for mixing and mingling network events, a garden exhibition, or perhaps an evening event under the stars. The castle marries ease of access in metropolitan Brussels with tranquility: despite its central location near both the airport and major highway, the chateau is cozily sequestered within the forest of Soignes, a perfectly remote location for formal and informal events.

EDIFICIO - SOLVAY LIBRARY

MIM (Musical Instruments Museum) joined the Brussels museum district on the ‘Mont des Arts’ in June 2000, a lovely new setting for this museum founded in 1877, combining Art Nouveau of the former Old England store building by Paul Saintenoy and the neoclassic style of the Guimard building.

The Solvay Library is located in Leopold Park in the heart of the European district. Here is a magnificent venue created by the vision of one man, Ernest Solvay. The idea was then conceptualised by the renowned Brussels architects Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld. They drew up the plans and carried out the construction work in 1902. It was here, in this ancient Institute of Sociology, where scientists from around the world came together to share their thoughts and ideas. In this science park, Einstein, Bohr and other Nobel Prize scientists gathered for the famous Solvay Conferences. No wonder the venue resonates with brilliant minds! In the 1980’s, the building was abandoned and fell into ruin. Thankfully, after being listed historical monument in 1986, it was saved and fully renovated by the Region and Citydev.brussels in 1994. Today, in this elegant library with its diverse and complex style worthy of a novel, Edificio can host private and professional events from 50 to 250 guests. Specialised in the operation and preservation of historical heritage buildings, Edificio enables you to create unique events in prestigious venues. Let our team guide you through the whole process. Specialised, reactive and closely-knit, our multilingual team will build your event with you – the way you want it – with advice, floral decoration, a variety of catering concepts, sound systems, entertainment and branding. Your Event Coordinator will work closely with you, from the first contact until your last guest has left.

Exceptional quality is the attribute characterizing the MIM collection of more than 7,000 instruments of all kinds and from all places. 1,200 of them are staged in a lively arrangement, full of surprises. On the four floors of exhibits, audio and visual displays intermingle by means of infrared headsets and an interactive sound area.

RESTAURANT


❘ THE BRUSSELICIOUS LABEL Ample and convivial, Belgian cuisine is rich in tradition and age-old recipes. Its roots lie in the land and the sea. Its signature products are chocolate, beer and chips, accessible to, and enjoyed by, just about everyone.

food & dining

The selection of Belgian/Brusselier restaurants is particularly vast in the capital. The Brusselicious label lists the best spots that honour this Belgian cuisine. Each certified establishment has its own personality but all endeavour to defend the values of local cuisine: simple, convivial and tasty. The final selection was conducted by a panel of culinary journalists, who have considered the presence of distinctive dishes on the menu, ingredients used, overall quality and service.

AUX ARMES DE BRUXELLES

VOLLE GAS

In our private dining rooms hosting from 12 to150 people, we cater for both private receptions and business dinners. A dining hot spot, our establishment is brimming with 100-years history and offers elegant, classic home cooking and authentic traditional Belgian recipes.

A TYPICAL BRUSSELS BRASSERIE Located at 21 place Fernand Cocq in Ixelles, with a terrace on the square and a warm, classic interior, this restaurant is so characteristic of the local lifestyle that French comedian and filmmaker Dany Boon filmed some scenes of his film Rien à Déclarer here.

From express lunches to full menus, everything is considered to make every visit a delicious culinary experience. With traditional, homely yet elegant Brussels décor, quality service, a friendly setting steeped in history and a wide range of menus specially developed by our chef.

Rabbit in Kriek beer, Zeeland mussels and Malines chicken in a morel cream sauce are three examples of a cuisine that is loyal to the local culinary traditions. A touch of creativity has been added to the dishes, which are also available for delivery.

Aux Armes de Bruxelles is one of your unmissable culinary stops in Brussels!

A FESTIVE VENUE The music, often jazz, the monumental oak bar, the smiles and speciality beers... There's no fuss here, just a relaxed and fun atmosphere. The Volle Gas also hosts your receptions, banquets and celebrations for up to 120 people in it's vast upstairs room.

Famed for its legendary Grand-Place (a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998) and the no less famous Manneken-Pis, who is undeniably part and parcel of Brussels’ cultural heritage, the capital of Europe is also one of the cradles of Surrealism, of which René Magritte is a figurehead, and Art Nouveau. By 1890, Horta, Hankar, Cauchie and Blerot were breaking boundaries to create a total and organic art, deploying its curves and arabesques in magnificent townhouses, furniture, decorative objects, and crockery. This movement, as creative as it was shortlived, was to evolve into the sleeker and more geometric Art Deco of which many listed examples adorn the streets of the city. With its rich heritage, Brussels also boasts a wealth of museums that criss-cross its territory and are real tourist hubs.

AN EXPERT TIP! The Sewers Museum offers an extraordinary trip into a very hidden side of Brussels. The sewer network under the city is nearly 350km long!

In Brussels, the streets speak for themselves: it is a city where the creative genius of the fin-de-siècle bloomed, often understated, in the shadow of Europe’s other great metropolises. And yet, it is here that Art Nouveau remains inspired, unaffected, and immortal and shows its complex and exquisite beauty to the public. Join us to commemorate the work of this extraordinary architect!

AN EXPERT TIP! Visit the Basilica of the Sacred Heart: the fifth biggest church in the world and the largest Art Deco building ever constructed. It also offers you a breathtaking panoramic view of the city

The legacy of Art Nouveau (and to a lesser extent, Art Deco which developed in the 1920s) lives on in Brussels and flourishes with buildings in each of its neighbourhoods, particularly the well-to-do communes of Ixelles and Saint-Gilles. These houses – some 500 intact buildings including shops, cafés and private houses – can be found across the city. Belgium’s most prominent architect, Victor Horta, had caught on to the style just as it emerged and began to design brick-and-stone artworks of his own, which bore Art Nouveau's characteristics inside and out. The spiralling staircases resembled curving shells, the windows took their shapes from flowers and cosmic geometrics, the columns and walls seemed to dance to a harmony of colours and parabola.

Why not plan, during the BANAD festival in March or by private appointment, a guided tour of an exceptional Art Nouveau interior which is normally closed to the public

Brussels' Art Nouveau


The announcement of the opening of the brand new Kanal-Centre Pompidou modern art museum, built in the former Citroën warehouse - an imposing 38,000-square-metre ‘glass cathedral’ Art Deco building - is going to play a major role in the presence and growth of contemporary art in Brussels. In terms of creation, Brussels has many assets: the streets are dotted with countless galleries, collectors and art centres to please an ever-increasing international audience. Lots of international artists have made the Belgian capital their home. Not a day goes by without an event coming to stimulate its cultural scene: the opening of an exhibition, a fair or trade show, a conference or themed guided tour… Contemporary art is alive and evolving in all its forms. It’s even spilling out onto the streets and walls of the city. Numerous players contribute to this richness. Brussels has a lively design and fashion scene, and a style all of its own. There are also original programmes for exclusive gala evenings, fashion shows and private shopping.

Sustainable features are everywhere in Brussels: on its roofs (such as the KBR - Royal Library’s urban allotment and the institutions’ beehives), in its Good Food restaurants, in its ecocertified accommodation and on Europe’s largest pedestrian area. This sustainable mindset enables objects to enjoy several lives, thanks to the composting workshops, “repair cafés” and vintage boutiques.

When it comes to music, evenings and nightlife, you’re going to love Brussels! Today it is a vibrant jazz city, as evidenced by daily live concerts in bars, clubs and bigger venues. Sometimes it’s an exotic, trendy or lounge setting; sometimes it’s a swanky setting for music lovers or foodies. Jazz has always been part of Brussels’ DNA. great names like Adolph Sax, Toots Thielemans and Django Reinhardt have shaped the history of jazz. With its jazz concerts, rooftop parties, gay-friendly events, club nights, festival-closing parties or jams until the small hours, Brussels is brimming with wonderful events in an electric and friendly atmosphere.

As you wind your way along the streets and alleyways, comic strips are everywhere in Brussels! And it’s no wonder since many authors from Brussels have contributed to its rapid growth in popularity worldwide. Several museums, galleries, markets, festivals, team-building activities and specialist stores are entirely dedicated to the comic strip. Welcome to the land of Tintin, the Smurfs and many more heroes of the ninth art! Brussels is the unchallenged capital of the European comic strip and we have a selection of individual and group incentives and team-building activities that pay homage to one of our country's greatest exports. You won’t be disappointed!

AN EXPERT TIP! The comic strip trail (the murals walk): meet Tintin, Astérix, Blake & Mortimer, Bob & Bobette (Spike & Suzy) or Lucky Luke as you wander down a street, around a museum or simply past a café. As you come across sixty or so monumental murals you’ll get to know these legendary characters and their talented authors. The only walk of its kind! The itinerary is available at visit.brussels' tourist information centres.
