How do you choose your exhibition centre in Brussels?

Businesses, organizations, and artists who are involved in trade shows, fairs, and exhibitions look for large, attractive spaces with nearby amenities, and settings that will stimulate both participants and visitors. Follow our guidelines to find the ideal location.

Your event’s setting is of crucial importance

Are you organizing a trade fair or show that is also open to the public – or perhaps an exhibition at the same time as your congress? Are you representing a group of artists and looking for a place to exhibit their best work? Or are you looking for a suitable place to exhibit the complete range of your brand’s products?

Don’t choose just any exhibition space in Brussels to display your most valuable assets. There are so many outstanding exhibition centres in Brussels to choose from. Perhaps you are looking for a venue with a rich industrial heritage, or you might prefer something more modern. Find the ideal venue to match your criteria, the needs of your exhibitors, and the activities of your participants with the help of the venue finder created by Brussels Special Venues.

5 key criteria for your exhibition centre or showroom

Here is a brief survey of what to consider when deciding on the ideal venue for your next exhibition, trade fair, or show.

1.Think about location and accessibility

Brussels has beautiful exhibition centres easily accessible by car (from the ring road or motorway), on public transport (train, tram, underground, or bus), and on foot or by bike.

This is the advantage of being in the centre of Belgium and the centre of Europe – the public, the participants, and guests are never very far away.

Have a checklist for everything: Are there plenty of entrances, parking places, access for people with disabilities, and emergency exits? Is there enough space to circulate without congestion, and every facility for the display stand installers? Are there hotels nearby?

2. The size of the exhibition centre or showroom

You should also think about your attendance and the number of people you are expecting, the number of stands you envisage, as well as height requirements and other spaces you might need.

Choosing a suitably sized space is an essential factor when organizing an attractive, and lasting exhibition.

3. More than one hall? If so, how many?

Think about your overall scenario. Do you need several exhibition spaces, or will one be enough? Where will you set up the catering, relaxation, and entertainment areas for your participants?

Will you need a meeting or lecture room? Will you need storage space?

Where will your reception desks and payment terminals, cloakrooms, and sanitary facilities be located?

Brussels Special Venues, ideal for exhibitions, can offer a unified ambiance to keep to a common theme as easily as providing completely different universes each with its own atmosphere.

4. Equipment and services
