Originally constructed for the 1958 World Expo, SQUARE is located in the extensive former Palais des Congrès, an elegant, architecturally significant building. Many of the original features, including expansive murals by Paul Delvaux, René Magritte and Louis van Lint, have been carefully restored and are now set within a contemporary design conceived by a team of leading European artists.

SQUARE provides its guests with all the very latest amenities – from superb auditoria and extensive exhibition space, to cuttingedge business technology and audio-visual equipment. All within a strikingly modern ambience.

SQUARE, this architectural landmark in its own right, is located in the vibrant Kunstberg/Mont des Arts cultural quarter in the heart of Brussels.
