If conference organisers are seeking to assure themselves about the quality of the facilities offered by Luxembourg Congrès, managing director Patrick Hoffnung can do so with ease: “The European Conference Centre building is reserved for three months of the year, April, June and October, for use by the council of ministers of the European Union. And through 2015, when Luxembourg held the Presidency of the EU, our buildings hosted the majority of its meetings,” he says. Our political leaders tend to choose the best.
