let’s meet in brussels

2017


Brussels:  an irresistible attraction Welcome to Brussels, Europe’s capital city and premier gateway for international organisations and associations! With its world-famous universities, 2.250 international associations and organisations, a high concentration of international companies, research & development organisations, decision makers and proactive supporting bodies, Brussels offers a dense network of expertise, resources and knowledge. More specifically, Brussels is a pivotal centre of excellence in the following fields: Life sciences & bio-pharma, Information and communication technology (ICT), Sustainability and clean technologies, Creative industries and media, Business services.

Every day, our ambassadors, recognised or upcoming experts in their field, dedicate their time to promote Brussels as a key destination for large international events. In addition, they help expand the network of experts by mentoring other Brussels leaders. The leadership of Brussels as the most association-friendly city is confirmed again, for the 7th successive year, UIA rankings show that Brussels is the no. 1 destination for association congresses in Europe. We can track this success to our approach of strengthening partnerships, streamlining activities and investing heavily in services to support associations. The support has been reinforced last year with a dedicated Association Bureau that connects associations with the diverse range of partners they need to build their businesses. All international associations are able to tap into a network of expertise, resources and knowledge in our growing regional ecosystem. In 2017 the new “International Association Club” opening in the European district will be another ideal place to enhance networking and experience sharing among different association representatives and learn more about various opportunities offered by the city. We are looking forward to welcoming you in our connected city.

Capital of

for meetings & conventions For the seventh consecutive year, Brussels was ranked Europe’s n°1 destination for congresses and meetings in 2015*. While many meeting organisers choose Europe’s capital city for its outstanding infrastructures, facilities and services, there is another defining reason for Brussels’s popularity: the help and services provided to organisers and delegates by visit. brussels, the Convention Bureau. * Union of International Associations

1 ❘ No. 1 ASSOCIATION CITY With 2.250 headquarters, Brussels is home to more international associations than any other city. It’s the best spot for getting up close to European decision-makers, building membership and bringing people together. Associations in Brussels benefit from a highly skilled and multilingual workforce, wide variety of meeting venues and gastronomy, and international education programmes for association executives. With its good geographical position and membership of the Global Association Hubs Partnership, Brussels enhances organisations’ links with other regions of the world and hosts Europe’s leading events for associations.

2 ❘ A SPECIALIST IN LIFE SCIENCES Surprised to know that Belgium has the world’s highest concentration of life science professionals? Or that it is the second largest pharma exporter in the world? Or 1st in Europe for per capita clinical trials? With its world-famous universities and concentration of international companies, Brussels offers a very intense research network and collaboration model that brings together academia, university hospitals, healthcare centres, international companies, and technology-driven communities and organisations. It’s thus no surprise that Brussels is a pivotal centre in life sciences.

3 ❘ DYNAMIC ICT SECTOR The Information and Communication Technology sector is growing fast in Brussels driven by strong local demand and close collaboration between academics, R&D and businesses, with proactive support from regional authorities. Foreign companies dominate, many of them with European operational and research headquarters in the area. Thanks to this attractive dynamic ICT market, Brussels is now recognised worldwide for its capacity for innovation.

5 ❘ CREATIVITY Long renowned for its Art Nouveau architecture and more recently for its fashion and textile design, Brussels is now emerging as one of the continent’s most exciting contemporary creative hubs. The film industry is booming (Brussels has 7 cinema schools), art galleries flourish (60 foreign galleries), and 2430 fashion and design companies employ around 50.000 people. Fairs and around 18.000 cultural events take place every year.

6 ❘ CORRIDORS OF POWER Decisions are made in Brussels: the city hosts all the major EU institutions including the Commission and Parliament. It is also home to a huge diplomatic corps, journalist community, lobby group (no less than 8686 registered lobby organisations!) and the largest concentration of international associations. But Brussels is also about business: 1700 international corporations operate Europe-wide from their base in Brussels. In parallel to this concentration, a large and sophisticated business services sector has developed, providing financial, security, arbitrage and other services to Brussels and the surrounding area.

interesting programme … and connecting with all the other innovations and advantages that Brussels can offer you.

why Brussels ?

Brussels is steadily becoming a more eco-friendly destination, and it shows. The city was recently voted No. 1 sustainable city in Europe in terms of environmental policy. It is already one of the greenest cities in Europe with 28 m² of green space per inhabitant and is one of the most active cities in the area of passive construction with more than 265.000m² of exemplary buildings. Cleantech events now taking place here include the Annual Carbon Capture and Storage Summit, Renewable Energy Law Conference and Sustainable Energy Week. In addition, the Ministry of the Environment of Brussels Capital Region focuses strongly on the circular economy (PREC programme), good food and the fight against waste (Good Food Brussels).

In this compact city, many places are within walking distance, or a short ride away by tram, bus or metro. And if you’re staying near the city centre, walking is a wonderful way to discover historic Brussels. 1,500 km

L ove Bugs & Flower Power

Tintin at Train World

> 05/03 - Autoworld During the month of February, the month of Valentine’s Day and the Love Bugs Parade, Autoworld devotes an exhibition to the Volkswagen Beetle and its derivatives. This year’s theme is Flower power. www. autoworld.be

> 16/04 - Train World The first temporary exhibition to be organised at Train World honours Hergé. The creator of Tintin sent his famous journalist on travels to the four corners of the Earth. The train is the vehicle he used to travel the world,from Europe to Africa, passing through both Americas and the Orient. An epic journey to be explored through exceptional documents. www.trainworld.be

> 05/03 - BOZAR This exhibition sheds new light on Pablo Picasso’s sculptures, a lesser known aspect of the artist’s oeuvre. Throughout his life, he experimented with three-dimensional materials and techniques and his sculptures are among the most radical of the twentieth century. Following the overwhelming success of the show at the MoMA (New York), BOZAR and the Musée national Picasso-Paris present around 80 sculptures in dialogue with paintings, ceramics, and ethnographic sculptures from his private collection. www.bozar.be

MARCH 2017

BXL Universel > 26/03 - Centrale for Contemporary Art A thoroughly Brussels exhibition, true to the city’s diversity and surrealist character. The works, sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, reflect a city with two traditional languages and a distinctive dialect. Franz Gselmann’s Weltmaschine draws inspiration from the Atomium. The exhibition also includes visual art by Pieter Geenen, ecologically motivated work by Lise Duclaux, installations by Charlemagne Palestine and Kendell Geers, and photography by Vincen Beeckman. www.centrale .brussels

celebrities. This exhibition, which will travel later to the MUMA in Le Havre, is a thematic presentation of some 80 works, from the late 1970s to today, from major international collections, both public and private. www.museedixelles.be

C over Art > 25/05 - Comics Art Museum Sometimes, comic-strip readers are so struck by a cover image that it comes to symbolise the work in question. Cover art must find a tricky balance between the author’s vision and the wishes of the publisher, art director, and head of marketing. Is it there just to catch the eye of a prospective buyer or should it be a work of art in itself? This interactive exhibition confronts visitors with these dilemmas. www.cbbd.be

Pierre et Gilles > 14/05 - Museum of Ixelles Since the 1980s, the artistic duo Pierre et Gilles has produced iconic pop art-style images in unashamedly kitschy colours, with references to mythology, the Bible, and art history. They have done portraits of numerous 17

Just married, A History of Marriage Robe de mariée à bustier et boléro assorti 1954

The Belgian artist Pol Bury (1922-2005) was one of the founders of kinetic art. After being influenced by Magritte and CoBrA, among others, he decided to follow a new path. Fascinated by the art of Alexander Calder, he turned to sculpture and incorporated motion in his work. He went on to win international fame. This retrospective includes paintings, sculptures, mobile works, fountains, jewellery, and graphic and written work, in the largest Belgian exhibition devoted to Bury for twenty years. www.bozar.be

Néron & Co, Sport!

This exhibition focuses on sport. www.marc-sleen.be 18

Just married, A History of Marriage > 31/08 - Museum of Costume & Lace More than 200 years of bridal fashion, from the late 1700s to the today. Wedding dresses came in every colour before white was adopted in the 19 th century as a symbol of virginity. Some brides wore black if they wanted to wear a dress again or as a sign of mourning; after the Great War, black made way for halftones such as grey, beige, and violet, already the recommended colours for second weddings or mature brides. The rules gradually became less strict and bridal wear is now a matter of personal taste. www.museeducostumeetdeladentelle .be

Ice Cream > 31/08 - Brussels Museum for Mill and Food Embark on a fascinating journey around the world and through the history of the coldest recipe ever. A delicious exhibition! www.moulindevere .be

Poison / Gif > 03/09 - Museum of Natural Sciences The exhibition with a sting in its tail! The snakes, lizards, frogs, spiders, insects and other venomous creatures in the Poison exhibition are live and spread throughout more than twenty terrariums. A trained specialist looks after their health. With a bit of luck you can even observe him working (through the window of our secure laboratory)! During your visit please try to move slowly, don’t knock on the tanks and make as little noise as possible: (sound) vibrations disturb the animals and could make them hide away in a corner where you will not be able to see them. www.naturalsciences.be

More than 200 years of bridal fashion, from the late 1700s to the today. Wedding dresses came in every colour before white was adopted in the 19 th century as a symbol of virginity. Some brides wore black if they wanted to wear a dress again or as a sign of mourning; after the Great War, black made way for half-tones such as grey, beige, and violet, already the recommended colours for second weddings or mature brides. The rules gradually became less strict and bridal wear is now a matter of personal taste. www.museeducostumeetdeladentelle .be

MAISON DES BRASSEURS (LA)

BELVUE & COUDENBERG

The Brewer’s House is situated in the historical heart of Brussels on one of the world’s most beautiful squares. The house as it stands today, dates back to 1698.

Prestigious spaces in the heart of Brussels ! 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.

However, this majestic building has a history that began long before the construction of the modern building. The rise of the brewers as a professional organisation or guild in Brussels, and later in the whole of Belgium, plays a very important role in this history. Even to this day both histories are intertwined as the House is the last guild house to serve its original purpose as the seat of the “Belgian Brewers”.

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.

By organizing an event there, you will be sure to surprize your guests with this amazing hidden venue and its gorgeous location!

BRUSSELS MARRIOTT HOTEL GRAND PLACE

With a total of 354 rooms and 18 meeting rooms the Crowne Plaza Brussels - Le Palace is a reputable and well known Conference hotel in Brussels.

Located in the heart of Europe’s capital, within walking distance of Brussels’ most admired landmarks such as the Grand Place, the Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place is surrounded by a melting pot of hip young designer fashion outlets and multinational eateries. Showcasing luxurious accommodation in a historical building, the hotel offers 221 rooms which are the perfect place for travelers to alternate seamlessly between work and play, never having to choose between style and substance.

Dating back to 1908 and renovated in Art Nouveau style, the hotel is ideally situated : just a short walk from the Grand Place, from the main shopping street, and close to Brussels main train stations. As metro and public transports are accessible in front of the hotel, the major business districts, exhibition centres, and EU Institutions are at easy reach.

When an occasion calls for an exceptional setting, the Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place has 611 m2 of premium function space. At Marriott, we understand that every meeting has a unique purpose. The hotel reveals it by designing innovative experiences with engaging technology, having flexible workspaces to inspire collaboration, and thinking of creative solutions for the way people work today.

With meeting rooms that have natural daylight and state of the art facilities (integrated screen & projector, sound system, free Wi-Fi) the Crowne Plaza Brussels - Le Palace welcomes events and conferences organised by the EU Commission, Government and major companies active in the pharmaceutical, law, banking or audit industries.

Looking for the latest hot spot to impress your attendees? The Beursschouwburg located across the street from the Marriott Brussels Grand Place will create the wow effect you seek. At the state of the art Midtown Bar & Grill, the menu features a selection of premium USDA certified Prime beef along with fresh seasonal dishes showcasing local Belgian delights.
