Since 2017, Eindhoven365 and the Municipality of Eindhoven have conducted extensive research into the city's and region's potential in the international conference market. The study showed that Brainport Eindhoven is severely underrepresented in the international conference market compared to other European innovative regions. At the same time, there is a lot of potential in the Brainport region. With the establishment of the Convention Bureau Brainport Eindhoven, the first step has been taken, and we can optimize congress recruitment for the region.
Everything shows that Brainport Eindhoven has the potential to attract international congresses: this is not only underlined by congress facilities and overnight accommodation in the region but also by the world-leading technology companies and the leading global position in various technology fields. It makes total sense the heart of Brainport, Eindhoven, is known for technology, design, and knowledge.
