General Information – IRCOBI Europe

Our next European conference will take place on 13.-15. September 2017 in the historic heart of Antwerp in Belgium.
Antwerp is the economic centre of Belgium thanks to its international port. It is also city on the river Scheldt, city of renowned painter Rubens, of diamonds, of fashion, and, of course, of famous breweries. The sum of all these different aspects is what makes Antwerp a vibrant metropolis, which is relaxing, heart-warming and great fun.


Right in the middle of Antwerp’s medieval city centre lies the fifteenth-century hospice “Elzenveld” that will serve as our conference venue. The magnificent gothic cathedral, the Botanical Gardens, the traditional “bird market” and the Meir with its many shops are all just a stone-throw away from the conference venue.
Celebrate 20 years of Euro NCAP with us! Join IRCOBI in Antwerp in 2017!
