Venues for conventions, seminars, conferences and events
Charleroi Métropole has a number of infrastructures dedicated to the organisation of events.
Of course, primarily, Charleroi Expo. The site, comprising 5 halls with a total of more than 40,000 m2 and an auditorium with 450 seats (la Géode), will shortly have a major renovation.
The CEME (Charleroi espace meeting européen) is a conference centre designed for meetings, seminars, professional events and private parties. It provides modular, light and airy spaces for maximum comfort with a pared down design.
The Spiroudome (6,300 person capacity), the Palais des Beaux-Arts(1,800 person), the Point Centre (180-person auditorium located in the centre of the Aéropole) or the Lacs de l’Eau d’Heure auditorium and the Centre de délassement de Marcinelle (350 person) complete the offer.
On a different note, let’s also mention the infrastructures of the Sporting de Charleroi and the Circuit de Chimay. The latter, recognised for its picturesque route, is one of the last road circuits in Europe.
What’s more, Charleroi will soon have a real convention centre enabling it to host professional and international clients in optimum conditions and to meet a growing demand. It will also enable the city to strengthen its economic roots thanks to the development of business tourism and the establishment of new businesses and companies.
