Fairs, shows and congresses

Brussels is easy to reach and offers great facilities for shows, commercial fairs and congresses (MICE).
The Brussels-Capital Region has plenty of assets when it comes to hosting shows, commercial fairs and congresses. As well as easy access, Brussels also offers the right facilities for any event.

Central and accessible

Boasting a central location in the heart of Belgium and the European Union, Brussels offers easy access. An extensive rail network and the nearby Brussels Airport (just 20 minutes from the centre) ensure that visitors and delegates can quickly get to their destination.

The right facilities offers a collection of unique meeting spaces in Brussels.
And there are plenty of professionals and services to help make your event a success.

International connections

Brussels is not only the nerve centre of Belgium. It is also the seat of an array of European institutions as well as international businesses and organisations. Multilingualism is a given.

But there’s more

It’s worth remembering that Brussels is a dynamic green region with a huge number of cultural and leisure opportunities. You can also enjoy some of the Brussels specialities in one of the thousands of restaurants and cafés.

Assistance for your events helps you find the right venues for your conference, congress or trade show in the Brussels-Capital Region. It can also advise you on restaurants, hotels, activities and services of all types. Dedicated pages for event organisers help you find what you need.

Browse coming events in Brussels in the MICE calendar (meetings, incentives, conferencing, exhibitions). You can also use the calendar to promote your own event.

The right way

There are a number of rules governing the organisation of trade shows and fairs (such as clear pricing, sales conditions and the cooling-off period). A copy of the commercial regulations for fairs and shows is available on the website of the Federal Public Service Economy, SMEs, the Self-employed and Energy.
