With a capacity of roughly 15,000 it is one of the largest indoor venues in Belgium. Located in the Heysel Exhibition Park, it was originally built in 1989 but was redesigned and reopened in its current form in 2013.

The venue

Situated on the Heysel Plateau, Palais 12 hosts major events, such as big concerts, conferences, shows and major sporting events for a maximum capacity of 15,000 people.

As the many large events organised at Brussels Expo demonstrate and thanks to its central position and accessibility, Palais 12 is the only venue in Belgium capable of welcoming spectators from all across the country, the equivalent of an attractiveness potential of more than 11 million people. This is a huge asset for Palais 12, Belgium's only venue to boast such a high prospect of spectators.
