Genk boasts three particularly inspirational meeting locations: Thor Central, Bokrijk and C-mine. These three settings are part of the brand-new ‘Flanders Heritage Venues’ network with meeting facilities, which Visit Flanders is confident will attract an ever-increasing number of international conferences to our country.
With 16 meeting rooms, an auditorium and two multifunctional rooms all equipped with modern technology, Thor Central is well placed to meet the demand for a unique heritage experience delivered professionally. Located on the former Waterschei colliery, Thor Centre is guaranteed to energize your future with a total experience subtly linked to its mining past, both in the infrastructure and in the catering and social programme.
For a truly visionary experience rooted in the past, head for C-mine! The buildings of the old Winterslag coal mine have been converted into impressive meeting spaces, like the Barenzaal function room in the Energy Building. The concentration of art and creative companies on the site gives C-mine its distinctive character. Every year the site attracts tourists from every corner of the globe.
A day out in Bokrijk for your staff, customers or business associates is a great experience from start to finish. From having a meeting in a beautiful renovated castle to team building in the museum or an outing for the whole company.
Under the banner of 'Reinventing craftsmanship' you'll find updated echoes of the past everywhere. From design and furniture to enviromentally responsible transport and lunch that includes bread from the site's own bakery. Bokrijk castle is available for meetings, while company parties and other big events can ben held in HANGAR58.
