Heritage meets innovation
Bruges is the destination of choice for those looking for quality, sustainability and innovation. The UNESCO World Heritage City strives to meet these criteria in collaboration with its partners.
Flanders Heritage Venues 2.0
Are you looking for a heritage venue or a venue with a unique impact? Toerisme Vlaanderen is supporting and developing a special network of venues at heritage sites under the name 'Flanders Heritage Venues 2.0'. These locations successfully passed a thorough quality audit and were evaluated on criteria such as sustainability, experience, accessibility, digitalisation and well-being. Sustainability and Toerisme Vlaanderen's 'Travel to Tomorrow' strategy were also important criteria when selecting these venues.
Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre
The BMCC is the ideal location for special events, conferences and trade shows. This is how the city of Bruges is aiming to respond to the increasing demand for multidisciplinary and hybrid capabilities in a state-of-the-art building. An exhibition area of 4,423m² and a divisible plenary hall for 514 people are among the many facilities of this new gem.
By the way, did you know that BMCC holds both the Green Key sustainability label and the M+ accessibility label?
The Concertgebouw (Concert Hall) best describes itself as 'The perfect scene for your event': state-of-the-art infrastructure and unique architecture also make this venue a perfect Flanders Heritage Venue. By making the link with art and its own artistic programming that is known across national borders, conferences, meetings, seminars, meetings, corporate events or parties get just that little bit more experience and impact.
Prefer a unique heritage location? From 2024, you will be able to rent the Provincial Palace for your conference or event. At present, this inspiring place is undergoing a full restoration. By adding new technology to this historic icon, the Provincial Palace will become a catalyst for business, events and conventions.
Green Key Label
Green Key is the largest sustainability label for the tourism and recreation sector in Flanders and is coordinated by GoodPlanet Belgium, with the support of Toerisme Vlaanderen. The new Green Key holders are being recognised for their efforts in sustainable and responsible business practices. For example, they keep their carbon footprint low thanks to energy and water-saving measures, offer local, organic and/or vegetarian options at breakfast, avoid disposable packaging and clean with ecological products.
As many as 11 locations in Bruges have the Green Key Label. The following Bruges establishments are proud holders of the label: Martin's Brugge, Martin's Relais, Crowne Plaza Brugge, Eco Fevery Hotel, Relais et Chateaux Hotel Heritage, NH Brugge, Radisson Blu Brugge, Ibis Styles Zeebrugge and BMCC.
