De Werelt was built in 1962. Local newspapers refer to it as 'the largest conference venue' in Western Europe. De Werelt isn't the largest center anymore, but due of the unique natural environment and combination of conference and hotel facilities, the place has retained its appeal over the years. Numerous leading companies, governments and organizations held meetings at De Werelt.

Conscious and local

De Werelt Conference Center is doing everything it can to protect the environment without sacrificing the comfort of its guests nor the quality of service. Below are a few of sustainability measures..

De Werelt is in possession of a golden Green Key. Green Key is the international sustainability mark for companies in the event industry. It guarantees you that we do everything we can to save the environment. This, of course, without sacrificing comfort and quality. De Werelt also supports and initiates initiatives to keep corporate social responsibility within its organization on the agenda. 

We use organic and/or regional products in the preparation of our dishes. We oppose food waste, without your guests being deprived of any dishes they may like. This means that food is sometimes left over. We collect these leftovers which are later converted into biogas.
