PALAIS 12, for a grandiose meeting

Palais12 is ideal for events, conferences and congresses for 2000 to 10,000 persons.


  • Capacity from 2000 to 10,000 pax

Hall 12 has been completely transformed into a hall for concerts, events and shows. Since it opened in September 2013 it has welcomed the public to events as varied as the Motor Show and concerts with internationally-renowned artists such as Muse and Johnny Halliday, as well as sports events, musical comedies and more.
With 10,000 seats, Hall 12 provides the largest plenary capacity in Brussels, making the hall indispensable for large gatherings such as, for example, the visit of the Dalai Lama to Brussels in September 2016 and the International Congress of Notaries.

Many companies have also chosen this technically and acoustically sophisticated venue for their presentations, conferences and congresses.
Hall 12 offers great modularity, thanks to its retractable seating area. The stage can also be placed at various different places to suit the number of people present.

The hall is organised for an easy and efficient flow of large groups. Depending on your event, one or several entrances can be proposed. The hall is also directly linked to Car Park C in Brussels Expo by a passage way. This car park can accommodate 10,000 vehicles and is linked directly to the Brussels Ring.
Another car park, situated to the north of the hall, offers a VIP parking service.
The hall has several bars, cloakrooms and a lounge area which is luxuriously equipped and decorated.

The close proximity of Brussels Expo’s 115,000 m² facilities also enables organisers to combine a convention or a congress with an event, exhibition or reception. The possibilities are unlimited.

On the Heysel site at the foot of Brussels’ icon, the Atomium, Brussels Expo also offers two other auditoriums, with 2000 and 500 places, as well as numerous meeting rooms and spaces which can be organised as break-out rooms with intermediate capacity.
