Brussels Expo Welcomes Seafood Expo Global and Seafood Processing Global Brussels has been shaken in its heart by the terrorist’s attacks on March, 22. After the shock of the events, and a necessary period of mourning, everyone in Brussels wants to go on. We have quickly resumed our minds and rebuilt normal activity, because it is all together that we must ensure that Brussels remains standing, and our International Capital and its values stay resistant to the terrorist threat. Today, all economic, cultural and educational activities in Brussels are back to normal. Life in Brussels is going on! Professionals in restaurants, shops, museums, attractions and hotels are warmly welcoming you. Like in all other European cities, public and cultural spaces are open and the organisation of guided tours, congresses, fairs and exhibitions is conducted in entirely normal circumstances with extra care for security. Nevertheless, there will be more police and military presence throughout the city centers, the metro, the airport and Brussels Expo. Brussels is the capital of 500 million Europeans and home to many International organizations. Only one week after the attacks, Brussels welcomed the 13th EU-India summit with the presence of many heads of state. Brussels is more than ever happy to Welcome Seafood this new spring.
This website is meant to give you all the information you might want to know about life in Brussels, actual situation, and safety. It is updated daily. Regional Brussels authorities and Belgium’s Federal authorities are doing everything to secure the city. In Brussels Expo, a few events were cancelled on the days following the attacks but all activities were quickly reprogrammed. New dates have been found for all the events that have not taken place in these exceptional circumstances. Meanwhile, Since March, 22nd, Brussels Expo has hosted 3 large concerts, welcoming up to 17.800 visitors, as well as a conference with Prime Minister of India with 4.600 attendees.
