1. AFTER THE CRISIS: FINDING SAFE REOPENING SOLUTIONS  

Some venues are currently hosting online events, while others are working on safe reopening solutions or hybrid events as a way forward. 

Here are a few of the steps being taken to help organise events while protecting the safety and well-being of all participants: 

BLUEPOINT BRUSSELS

To keep your audience engaged during the lockdown, BluePoint is offering the possibility of organising  remote brainstorming meetings via their live streaming platform so  your event can continue regardless of your location in the world.

Contact the VENUE to know more!  

DOCKS DOME

When event venues are allowed to reopen, Docks Dome will offer the possibility of organising  events in complete safety thanks to the installation of a video conference and live streaming system. All this, without any physical contact between individuals! Furthermore, the venue is studying the possibility of setting up a thermal camera system at the entrance of the venue to detect body temperature.

RESIDENCE PALACE

Residence Palace is the proud host of national and international major live stream press conferences. And as the venue also houses the International Press Centre, it is one of the best equipped for this type of event!

2. HUMANITARIAN HELP DURING THE CRISIS

Our world turned upside down in just a few weeks. Coronavirus has forced us to show solidarity and act together.
Have a look at these extraordinary responses from some of our larger venues:

  

WILD GALLERY

Wild Gallery is currently offering spaces to the authorities for needs related to the COVID-19 crisis: for material storage, or as temporary sewing factories, etc.

And the venue is also offering event rooms to universities and colleges so that they can safely organise their end-of-year exams by implementing distancing and other safety measures.
 

TOUR & TAXIS, THE SHEDS

COVID-19 is particularly serious for  the more vulnerable sectors of the population! Thus, The Sheds, is now transformed into a free temporary shelter, with a dormitory and medical care, for migrants, asylum seekers, and homeless people in Brussels. An initiative that was set up by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Belgium, in conjunction with other local partner organisations and NGOs. 

DOCKS DOME

Just as Wild Gallery, Docks Dome is currently offering spaces to the authorities for needs related to the COVID-19 crisis: for material storage, or as temporary sewing factories, etc.

And the venue is also offering event rooms to universities and colleges so that they can safely organise their end-of-year exams by implementing distancing and other safety measures.
