We are delighted to welcome you to Belgium, to Antwerp and of course to our newly established Room with a ZOO – The Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp (Belgium) (FMCCA).
It has been quite a voyage since stepping into the world of conventions and purpose built convention centre management four years ago – it has been a real journey of discovery, camaraderie and re-learning how we do things for which we are truly grateful to have had the many friendships formed along the way with our AIPC colleagues. So, for this reason it makes us especially proud to invite you to come and meet at the AIPC Annual Conference and General Assembly to be held at the FMCCA 23-26 June, 2019.
Although young in the industry, our venue opened its doors April 19th 2017, we feel we have created a unique proposition due to our location within one of the oldest scientific zoos in the world with its research centre and conservation programs. Our icon of these conservation efforts is personified in Matadi, our silverback gorilla who has become the Ambassador for client CSR opportunities and who we very much hope you will meet during your stay.
Antwerp is a home to chocolate, diamonds, beer, a tradition of design and 16th century buildings – with this historical background within walking distance we look forward to welcoming the worlds venues to our home and to sharing in the many discussions on issues facing venues in today’s world.
A very warm welcome!
Dries Herpoelaert | Chief Executive Officer and
