The venue for the Congress will be the Concertgebouw which is located on the „’t Zand” Square in Bruges and has its proper underground car park facilities (Parking Het Zand for 500 cars) and is located at only a 5 minutes’ walk from the railway station where another car park for about 1,500 cars is available. All hotels are within walking distance and the short walk to the Concertgebouw will give delegates a general impression of Bruges’s architectural and historic splendour.

The Concertgebouw is a cultural centre, completed in 2002 when Bruges was European Capital of Culture. The halls, and the Concert Hall in particular, are famous throughout the world for their perfect acoustics. The building rests on 4,669 poles and the facades are covered with thousands of red terracotta tiles from Saint-Omer in northern France.
