We would like to extend a warm welcome on behalf of all the EGC2019 staff. Whether you arrive early or late, it will be our goal to make you feel welcome and to help you enjoy your stay at the congress. Feel free to ask the people at the infodesk should you have any questions, they will do their best to help you.
You might be wondering how to best get to the congress venue. It will be easiest to enter Brussels by train. If you come by plane, don't worry, there is a direct line between the Zaventem Airport and Brussels Central Station, a ride that will take about 20 minutes. The venue is only a short 10 minute walk from the Brussels Central Station. If you're staying at a hotel in or near the center, rest assured, the venue is located a mere 5 minutes from the Grand Place.
Below you'll find an image of where the venue's buildings are located relative to eachother.
We really hope you will enjoy this fine moment in our capital city. Take a few hours to visit the City center: Manneken-Pis, the Grand Place and many other fine buildings are just a few steps away! But there is so much more to see and taste here in Belgium, enjoy your holidays!
Are you coming with little kids? We have prepared a playground for them and we invite you to join a WhatsApp group where you can discuss with other parents and share babysitting periods. Please write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a family presentation.
Here in Brussels, we care about the environment! Please follow these simple rules for waste disposal: Yellow bin: paper, cardboard (clean and dry) Blue bin: plastic bottles, metallic packagings (cans, tins), drink cartons Black bin: other waste
Note: the water in bathrooms is drinking water. Please enjoy it with a reusable bottle!
