The capital was only beaten by Singapore, which hosts 736 conferences. The two leaders were followed by Seoul (494), Paris (362), Vienna (308), and Tokyo (249).


Patrick Bontinck, CEO of, is delighted: “This latest recognition rewards the hard work done by the Convention Bureau, in collaboration with suppliers, as well as the excellent event facilities the city boasts. As well as this, with the very recent creation of the Association Bureau, Brussels has once again managed to demonstrate its ambition of really standing out in this field, despite fierce competition.”


A number of factors combine to make sure that the city reflects a positive image: modern, flexible and sustainable facilities and services, a central geographical position, great accommodation and access options and much more. On top of this, every day the team at the Convention Bureau offers their extensive expertise to make sure that conferences, meetings and events run as smoothly as possible. This includes arranging for visitors to be welcomed, pre-booking and customised support for a successful event. Added to this is the Association Bureau, a unique new concept that has only just been introduced, offering personalised services to international associations and providing solutions to all their needs and questions.
