The conference location is Elewijt Center, near Mechelen (Belgium). Elewijt Center was also the location of the XP Day Benelux 2004 conference and the previous Agile Open. The center has a lounge, which even on a full day has space available and if the weather is good, it is possible to retreat to the front square or the garden. We will have a large room with a small break out room available for the conference. We will provide flip charts and a beamer.
