5 reasons why Ostend should be on your bucket list of ideas for your next event

Seminars, team building activities, family days... Everyone can’t wait to return to in-person corporate events again. Here are five reasons why you should definitely add Ostend to your list of possible locations for your next corporate event:

1. Hotels

Ostend has the largest number of (quality) hotels on the Belgian coast. Whether you prefer a gem of a boutique hotel, which you can reserve exclusively for your group or an elegant 4-star hotel with sea views, Ostend has plenty of options when it comes to accommodations. Many of the city’s hotels also have meeting facilities. Perfect for scheduling a meeting with all your co-workers before heading out for your team building activity! Discover the city’s hotels.

2. Special venues

If you’re looking for an original venue for your next corporate event, look no further than Ostend. Where else can you organise a meeting or congress in a historic fort with a view of the dunes, a former post office (the old post office counters are a great way to receive your co-workers or guests)? Or how about a dinner with a view of the racetrack or the city’s skyline? You can even organise an event on the stage of Kursaal! The sky is the limit! Discover the city’s special venues.

3. Sea & beach

Mention Ostend and most people will immediately think of the sea and the beach. And we can see why! Our seaside location is one of Ostend’s greatest assets. Can you think of anything more relaxing than an invigorating walk along the seafront or on the beach at the end of a long day of meetings? The sound of the waves crashing on the breakwaters, the pleasant (and healthy!) sea air... One thing is certain, you always get that holiday feeling when you visit Ostend. And let’s be honest, after the many months of working from home and social distancing, we are all looking forward to that holiday feeling!

4. Teambuilding activities

With a sea view, your MICE event won’t feel like work! A team building activity at the beach or at sea is always a hit with participants. You can go sailing, take a speedboat to the wind farm off the coast of Ostend, and much more. What’s nice about Ostend, however, is that it has something to suit all tastes. A team treasure hunt in golf carts, an escape from Fort Napoleon, working together with the entire team to assemble a race car... Just a small selection of the many options you can choose from.

5. The Meet in Oostende team

Our enthusiastic MICE team is ready to help make your event a success with their many years of experience and an excellent knowledge of Ostend and its numerous possibilities. After listening to your needs and finding out what exactly you’re looking for, we set to work to find the perfect venue and activity for your next corporate event, after which we send you a proposal.
