Travel to Belgium
Belgium is not a large country, but we can still safely state that there is a French, a Flemish and German area. It is a fascinating mix between all of them. Stunning castles, stately historic houses, you find them everywhere. Cities are known for their Art Nouveau and Art Deco and the food in Belgium is unrivaled. It has more three star Michelin restaurants than you can shake a stick at. Belgium is more than Brussels with its famous Avenue Louise, or Antwerp with one of the largest harbours of Europe. It also boasts the fairytale mediaeval cities of Bruges (Venice of the North) and Ghent. Belgium has thirty five UNESCO World Heritage Sites and two thousand chocolate shops.

Event ideas Belgium
Belgium offers huge potential as destination for MICE groups. There are many events we can embed into your group's program, for example music festivals:
Tomorrowland is one of the biggest and best known dance festivals worldwide which takes place each summer during two weekends at the end of July. It first was organised back in 2005 and since 2017 and by now is so big that it sells out in minutes.
The world's most famous DJ's come to Belgium to perform during Tomorrowland.
If your group visits the festival, we can organise a tomorrowland themed itinerary, which makes an unforgettable experience of your trip to Belgium.
Next to that, at FAME we have our own glamping tents we can set up at a nice location - we have a few great nature spots for this. This way, your group is private, but still gets the full Tomorrowland vibes. We organise a great breakfast and transfers to the festival site, so nothing stands in the way of a unique festival experience for your clients.
