Square Brussels Meeting Centre is an alluring technological gem in the heart of the Quartier des Arts that gives a newfound visibility to the former ‘Palais des Congrès’. It represents a poetic emblem incarnate in the 16-metre tall glass cube that forms the principal entry to the premises. The design is transparent and light; it’s bold and modern but at the same time it appears to blend into the surrounding architectural landscape. It offers 27 meeting rooms, an exposition zone, restaurant, and a brasserie. The foyer of the meeting center is decorated with prestigious works of art which create an ambiance specific to the site — a mix of history and future.
