Create Tomorrow's Heritage

This is the campaign VISITFLANDERS Convention Bureau and its partners have launched at IMEX 2019 in Frankfurt. A combination of professionally equipped Flanders Heritage Venues and the expertise of key Flemish industries, businesses and universities, make Flanders the ideal location to host association conferences.

Flanders, not just a location

Flanders, definitely not just a location to host association conferences. Situated in the beating heart of Europe, surrounded by other major cities and easily accessible. That’s us! Wake up in Antwerp, have your meeting in Ghent and take a break in Bruges. The short distances between locations can help make your conferences a hub of possibilities.

Despite our comparatively small size, the know-how of our key industries, businesses and universities couldn’t be any bigger. Indeed, Flanders has become a world authority in specific domains like Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, renewable energy, chemistry … and many more.

History lies around every corner of our (art)cities and is world renowned. No matter whether you want to organise a conference in a medieval library, an old brewery, an abbey or even an old coal mine. We can make it happen. Even better: we promise you a location as inspiring as the conference itself. And of course, our Flanders Heritage Venues, a professional network of inspiring meeting locations in Flanders, are very well equipped. And we know how to welcome our guests: it’s our aim to give each one of them an unforgettable experience. Through our exquisite gastronomy, culture and varied leisure activities. Our team won’t settle for less.

IMEX Frankfurt is one of the world’s most important meetings industry platforms. The perfect opportunity to launch our new brand ‘Create Tomorrows Heritage’. Together with our Flemish and Brussels’ partners, we showcase and tell our meaningful story to the international associations and meetigs community.

says Evelyne Bardyn, senior meeting manager of the VISITFLANDERS Convention Bureau.
