Of”Cores announces the opening of its headquarters in Brussels

Of”Cores, the Belgian-based corporate event solutions company, is delighted to announce the official opening of its new headquarters in Brussels, in addition to its current representation office in Ghent.

Of”Cores’s main goal is to provide the highest standards of event management to national and international clients. From this perspective, Jean-Baptiste de Bock, Of”Cores Founder & Managing Director, says: “After organising more than 2000 events in Brussels for European associations, institutions and international companies, it was a natural move to settle in the capital. This is a way to ensure that our current and future clients get a high quality service and all the support required to realise their projects.”

The new head office is hosted in the Egg, an exceptional 15.000m2 post- industrial building dedicated to creativity and innovation. Jean-Baptiste de Bock describes the new working space as “inspiring, contemporary and open-minded”, in line with Of”Cores’ values.

The location of the new headquarters in the Egg is very convenient. It’s only a 5-minutes walk from Midi Station, which connects Brussels to major European cities such as London, Paris or Amsterdam. A strategic move for the growing start-up already well established within Brussels-based corporates and associations.
