Testimonial ACV-Nationaal
Oostende is a place where both the Flemish-speaking and the French-speaking participants of our convention like to go to. It allows them to experience a bit of a holiday feeling while working hard. We always try to let them discover parts of Oostende during their stay. This year we are planning a visit to C-Power and Oesterbank.

We have had an excellent cooperation with Kursaal Oostende for some years now. De Lijn takes care of our transport and we can count on Oostende Convention Bureau for good advice on hotels. They also inform us of what’s new in Oostende, and of the different events.
