Organisers of events in Brussels who are keen to support environmentally-friendly and sustainable venues will want to look at the Bel there.
Located on the re-developing Tour and Taxis site, formerly a huge customs clearance and goods warehousing area employing more than 3,000 people, the Bel is a new eco-designed and high energy-efficient building close to the city centre with an evolving infrastructure. It offers a modern raked-seat auditorium accommodating 415 delegates on multi-coloured seating that is comfortably padded and has folding tables. Some up-to-date AV technology is also included along with induction loops for those with hearing difficulties and booths for simultaneous interpretation.
Also offered is a large glassed Atrium area for receptions for 500+ with very high ceilings and lots of natural light, and some first floor modular meeting rooms for 20/40/50. And a restaurant specialising in using only local and regional organically-farmed produce, and a centre for environmental information are also available to use.
