Square Brussels Meeting Centre
Mont des Arts
SQUARE provides its guests with all the very latest amenities – from superb auditoria and exhibition space, to cutting-edge business technology and audio-visual equipment. All this in a strikingly modern atmosphere that balance function, inspiration and serenity.
SQUARE is housed in the extensive former Palais des Congrés, an elegant, architecturally significant building originally constructed for the 1958 World Expo. Many of the original features, including expansive murals by Paul Delvaux, René Magritte and Louis van Lint, have been carefully restored and are now juxtaposed with contemporary design conceived by a team of leading European designers.
With its spectacular views over the Brussels skyline, SQUARE is somewhere to inspire the mind to greater heights and ambition.
Brussels is home to the European Commission, Parliament and NATO, a buzzing, influential city where history is made. The city is a key European commercial hub too, a base for many progressive international companies.
But more than that, Brussels is a compact city, friendly, cosmopolitan, easy to get around. Eating out plays a significant part in Belgian life: along with the celebrated local cuisine, there are restaurants representing every corner of the globe. Nightlife is lively, with plenty of concerts, bars and clubs, theatre and dance, something for everyone. For a major European capital, Brussels is surprisingly eco-friendly too, peppered with parks and green spaces.
A walk through Brussels takes you through a potted architectural history, from ancient medieval buildings to strikingly modern edifices, taking in the Art Nouveau styling’s of illustrious architect Victor Horta along the way. With official sanction, huge walls in the city are covered in bright murals, outsize homages to the country’s many comic book heroes, including Tintin, Lucky Luke, Largo Winch and the Smurfs.
