Lamot Conference and heritage centerVan Beethovenstraat 8-10
BNAIC/BeNeLearn 2022 takes place at the Lamot Conference and Heritage Centre, centrally located in the town of Mechelen, a short train ride from Brussels and Antwerp in Belgium.
The venue, previously an old brewery, is a multifunctional and integrated space providing 8 comfortable meeting rooms as well as a cultural heritage service. It provides a place for public projects around the Mechelen’s cultural heritage such as big summer exhibitions and is a focal meeting point for Mechelen as well as hosting an increasing number of international meetings.
Location details and maps can be found at lamot-mechelen.be/en/#accessibility-section, along with information about local parking if required. We highly encourage our visitors to use public transport. Mechelen has a direct connection by train from most other cities in Belgium.
Anyone still choosing to come by car can use the relatively inexpensive peripheral car parks ‘Zandpoortvest’ or ‘Douaneplein’, for those coming from Brussels, and the ‘Rode Kruisplein’ car park for those coming from Antwerp. Both car parks are within walking distance (1.2 – 1.6km) of Lamot.
Finally, you can also visit the local city car parks, Q-park Lamot and Vinci Car Park.
