 “We are proud to have won this award,” said
Heidi Martens. “It shows that our efforts and the efforts from all Special Event Venues in Brussels are noticed and are paying off. Our goal is to provide events’ organisers worldwide with free information and resources that will facilitate their venue search in Brussels. What makes us unique is that our non-profit organisation proposes 40 different event venues.”

Special Venues represents the widest choice of unique venues in the capital of
Europe, each with their own character and charm. “Our network offers every type
of venue: premises that are purpose-built or industrial; heritage and iconic
locations; contemporary, architect-designed spaces, black boxes; as well as
museums, concert halls and theatres. All so different that they are not
competitors of each other! Unrivalled! The common denominator between the
venues is a high level of service and an exceptional appearance. And each
location remains individually responsible and independent, thus preserving the
unique character of the locations.”

“Brussels Special Venues focuses on bringing the proprietors of business events locations and event organisers together. This means that clients do not pay a commission for our services”  Ms Martens explained. “The various locations that are affiliated with BSV form a strong network within Brussels to help the business guest as much as possible in the search for the perfect location. Of course, all our locations meet the most important requirements. They have a unique character. In addition, it is important that the venues can accommodate events for at least 100 guests; our locations mainly focus on B2B events.”

Brussels Special Venues has a unique venue finder via the website:, which helps you to quickly and efficiently find the right venue for your event.
