The venue


Rich history. Grand future.

The perfect slogan to describe the venue of a tech event. Handelsbeurs Antwerpen remains a stunning setting. Its high ceilings and neo gothic elements combined with state-of-the-art technology will make you forget about your day-to-day business and focus on today’s topic.
