Zarina Mahmood, Account Director of hotel republic ltd, who organised this trip with their two hotel clients, said: "This FAM trip was extremely important to us. Brussels is such a popular city with the UK market especially with such easy access via the Eurostar from London St Pancras.
"The Hotel and Hotel Bloom are both fantastic city centre hotels. We wanted to show our clients that the city is open for business as usual and has some amazing restaurants and venues. We were delighted with the attendance, with the likes of FC Business Intelligence, Absolute Corporate Events, Inntel, Zibrant, Nexus Venue, Capita Travel & Events and LBCG taking part."
Both hotels organised a fantastic programme for our UK MICE clients. They took part in a cooking class with white asparagus (it’s the season), a visit to the oldest fine leather luxury goods’ company in the world, Delvaux, which was founded in 1829 in Brussels. And then everyone had an amazing time playing a great detective game called Escape Hunt which is Number 1 on ‘Brussels Fun and Games’ activity on TripAdvisor.
Louise Bouteiller from Nexus Venue said: “I had no idea how beautiful this city was. Both The Hotel and Hotel Bloom are stunning properties and we can definitely use both venues for future events." Emma Pullen from Zibrant added: "we had such a great Fam trip and our two days in Brussels were a revelation. The Eurostar journey to Brussels only takes 2 hours – perfect for Groups”
The Hotel is right on Boulevard Waterloo, towering high above Brussels and the high-end fashion-shopping street of the Belgian capital, just a few minutes away from all main attractions.
Thanks to the unique design of this iconic high-rise and its position in the city, each bedroom offers guests their own breath-taking view of Brussels. There’s great conference space too with 12 meeting rooms for up to 450 delegates, all with daylight.
Hotel BLOOM offers more than 300 spacious and brightly coloured rooms with unique frescos painted by European artists. This 4-star design hotel is located next to the Botanical Gardens. Again, the conference facilities are fantastic with twelve fully equipped meeting rooms and creative catering. The main room has a capacity of 300 people. It has been voted one of the trendiest hotels in the world by TripAdvisor. A must see!
