The Lamot congress center is located in the center of Mechelen. The old beer brewery Lamot was completely renovated between 2000-2005. The bold architecture ensured a successful combination of old and new; a modern vision for the future with respect for heritage.
The conversion of an old industrial site into a bustling event location that offers added value for the retail and catering industry in the centre of Mechelen fits perfectly in the OVAM policy. After all, the recycling of old industrial space in residential areas ensures that the scarce open space that is still available in Flanders is not used for project development but leaves room for nature development.
At this event we opt for 100% delicious vegetarian catering. This way we keep our CO2 emissions to a minimum. We also reduce waste associated with catering to a minimum. To avoid food surpluses, we have our participants register separately for dinner on May 18 and lunch on May 19. If you are unable to attend, we ask you to notify in time so that we can still adjust our catering order.
The Lamot congress center is located 15 minutes' walk from the train station in Mechelen. This beautiful walk runs via a floating walking path on the Dyle and gives you a wonderful view of the Mechelen city center. Our selected hotels are also within walking distance of the convention center.
The convention center is also easily accessible by public transport. By taking bus 1 you travel every 15 minutes from the train station to the Lamot congress center.
These hotels in Mechelen have the Greenkey label. This means that they make important efforts to reduce their environmental impact.
