The Polak is the largest conference hall in the Résidence Palace. It is named after the Swiss architect of the Résidence Palace, Michel Polak. It is the favourite room for prominent visitors. So why not join them?
After the large Polak conference room is the smaller Passage. The 'Passage' used to be a small transitional space joining the Polak and the Maelbeek, hence the name. It is suitable for smaller, although not less important, conferences.
After the Passage is the Maelbeek conference room. This third conference room is named after the river Maelbeek, in whose valley the Residence Palace is situated. Slightly larger than the Passage, this room is suitable for medium-scale conferences.
