In the heart of the province of Hainaut, not far from Mons and Valenciennes, the site of Le Grand-Hornu is part of Wallonia's major heritage. As a former industrial coal mining complex, it is recognised as one of the most beautiful places of the Industrial Revolution and is classified as a Walloon heritage site as well as a UNESCO world heritage site.
After having been one of the flagships of Belgian industry, the site of Le Grand-Hornu is today one of the leading cultural sites in Belgium dedicated to the promotion of contemporary design. In addition to the Innovation and Design Centre (CID = Centre d’Innovation et de Design) , the site is home to the Museum of Contemporary Arts, the MAC's (Musée des Arts Contemporains).
On this site, steeped in history, there are several rooms of different capacities that can accommodate professional and private events: weddings, seminars, conferences, meetings, etc.
The CID Auditorium (60 people) and the MAC's Auditorium (50 people) are projection rooms with remarkable acoustics. They are ideal for organising courses or conferences.
The Grand Auditorium is a large ellipsoidal modular room with a capacity of 200 people. Conferences, symposiums, seminars or work meetings can easily be organised here.
The meeting room in the North Wing is a more intimate space that can accommodate about 15 people.
The Lampisterie, a long rectangle with cast iron columns and a wall of mirrors, is ideal for exhibitions, seminars, workshops, team buildings or other private events.
All the rooms are comfortable, spacious and equipped with the necessary material.
The professional team of the Grand-Hornu organises various activities that can be offered during your event, such as a guided tour of the site or the MAC's.

The site is also home to the RIZOM restaurant, one of the 6 projects of the brilliant chef, Sang Hoon Degeimbre! RIZOM stands for creative, local and intercultural cuisine.
Depending on the number of guests and upon prior reservation, the restaurant can accommodate your guests. If not, you will be offered a list of various authorised caterers and brewers.
Other valuable assets of this venue are its central position in the province of Hainaut, its proximity to the motorways, its large outdoor spaces and the presence of a large parking lot. These are all advantages that will contribute to the success of your event.
