Brussels is the foremost destination for association congresses in Europe.
One of the reasons why so many meetings are organized here is because decisions are taken here, making it also the best place for lobbying, in all its forms. That's partly why such a vast mix of organisations and associations have set up base in Brussels, making it the number 1 destination for association congresses in Europe.
But the capital of 500 million Europeans is not just about politics and administration. Things are not only decided here, they're also designed here; not just debated, also created. There is an exciting cultural and artistic tide, and a surprising fashion scene flowing through the city, helping to create a multicultural melting pot.
* In 2015, visit.brussels signed an alliance with Destination DC, Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau and Dubai Association Centre to assist international associations to grow and to better serve their overseas members by using the cities as regional conduits to extend their efforts around the world.
visit.brussels also launched its new 'association bureau'. The goal of the association bureau is to further improve the support available to international associations and to consolidate the global role of the region in the work of these associations. By creating a 'one-stop shop', a specific point of contact for international associations, the new office will help guide associations to the right resources, training and contacts to help them reach their professional objectives successfully.
visit.brussels is the official Brussels visitors and convention bureau. It represents all the governing and professional bodies involved in the meeting industry and provides free advisory services.
