BruCON is held at the Surf House in Evere. It's ideally located between Brussels National Airport (Zaventem) and Brussels North Railway Station.
The Surf House features a big auditorium, a lounge and several modular workshop rooms. In the auditorium, there are five huge screens to provide a panoramic view of the message you wish to convey. This area is perfect for holding presentations as the high-tech apparatus is a boon for efficient and professional communicating. In the lounge you can relax yourself in between the presentations and workshops and join us at the party on Saturday evening.
The location is easy to reach by train, bus, car or taxi. See below for more information.
