Belgian Limburg Convention Bureau (BLCB)

Limburg, a historic and picturesque region in eastern Belgium on the border with The Netherlands, is a region with centuries of interesting history and strong cultural traditions, but is also a region that is new in the meeting industry. That’s because of a major step that took place in recent years that was a bold commitment to sustainability. Coal mines and industrial plants in Limburg were closed and replaced with knowledge centers, turning the former buildings at the sites into state-of-the-art meeting facilities. This, together with the green nature, the large choice of social programs, the hospitality and the culinary lifestyle of the inhabitants makes Limburg a true hidden treasure in Belgium.
