MOVE Congress 2021 main building
MAISON DE LA POSTE: “Gather for business or pleasure in one of our ‘living rooms’.”
The MOVE Congress 2021 will be held in the Maison de la Poste building, which began as ‘Hôtel de l’Administration’, serving as Tour & Taxis’ administrative centre for telephone and telegraph services in the early 20th century. In the 1970s the building was used as a post office, earning the name ‘Hôtel de la Poste’ in the process. In the 1990s Hôtel de la Poste de la Poste even housed a popular nightclub! Since the 2000s it has become one of Brussels’ preferred venues for private and public events.
The building is evolving once more, as Maison de la Poste, a home away from home and one of Brussels’ most unique meetings and events spaces. Each space has been designed in collaboration with renowned interior designers including Diego Fortuna, Fleur Rossdale, and Benedetti Interieur.

“Maison de la Poste was designed to have a positive long-term impact ecologically, economically, and culturally. It is also designed as an optimal events venue that will be enjoyed by many generations to come.” Jean Vandamme, Venues Manager

Physical activity can help prevent non-communicable diseases. This is an established and scientifically proven fact. But it has taken time for the health and sport and physical activity sectors to recognise that they can join forces to help people become more active for their health.

The last MOVE Congress in 2017 began with the whole room Bhangra dancing to a Bollywood soundtrack in Birmingham’s City Hall. How can we top that this year? With an interactive demonstration led by Hungarian Skipping World Champion and Cirque de Soleil performer Adrienn Bánhegyi at the opening of the 2019 conference on 16 October! Adrienn is a world record holder in skipping and that title is about much more than some serious endurance jumping. Her tricks (see above) have seen
