Why meet in Helmond

As the fifth largest city in Brabant, Helmond is closely connected to Eindhoven, and with that comes an important position in the Brainport region. Helmond is traditionally thought of as an international textiles city, but now with the Automotive Campus can justifiably claim to be a leading international knowledge centre in the field of automotive engineering. From this, the city is creating a new identity for itself, and is rapidly modernising.

Fifth largest city

As the fifth largest city in Brabant, Helmond is closely connected to Eindhoven, and with that comes an important position in the Brainport region. Helmond is traditionally thought of as an international textiles city, but now with the Automotive Campus can justifiably claim to be a leading international knowledge centre in the field of automotive engineering. From this, the city is creating a new identity for itself, and is rapidly modernising.

Beautiful surroundings

The city offers beautiful architecture, while Helmond Castle and the surrounding countryside (De Peel) offer a beautiful glimpse into the rustic past. Helmond is a city that is perfect for business meetings. In the Castle and in the Cocoa Factory, the past and the future come together. There are several good conference hotels, and the Automotive House in particular offers a beautiful glimpse into the future with outstanding facilities for events, meetings and functions.

Automotive Campus

Located in the Brainport region, the Automotive Campus in Helmond is the national and international hotspot, meeting place and business location for the automotive and smart mobility industry. It is an attractive learning and working environment with state-of-the-art (testing) facilities and flexible accommodation options, with the Automotive House at its heart: an inspiring centre with various rooms for your events, meetings and gatherings. If you are active in Smart Mobility, Green Mobility, Materials or Manufacturing – in other words, you work at making mobility smarter, more efficient and safer – then you will not find any other MICE location in Brabant (or even the Netherlands) that is as perfect as the Automotive Campus.
