The aristocratic city of Brussels is the capital of the north-western European country of Belgium. Brussels which is the largest urban area in Belgium is composed of 19 municipalities including the City of Brussels which is the constitutional capital of Belgium, the Flanders and Wallonia. Brussels is in fact a Flemish-French bilingual enclave located in the Flemish-speaking area of Belgium.

Aside from functioning as the constitutional capital of Belgium, Brussels is also often considered to be the capital of Europe as it is home to the headquarters of the European Union. As a founding member of the EU it also hosts several other EU institutions like the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, the Committee of the Regions and the European parliament which is the legislative branch of the EU composed of representatives elected by the people of the member states for the duration of a five-year term.

Additionally this city which is characterized by the co-existence of French and Flemish cultures also hosts the headquarters of NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and Eurocontrol (the European organization for the safety of Air navigation) within its borders. Further this Belgian capital city is also home to the European headquarters of countless multinational corporations like Toyota, UPS, Proctor and Gamble, Monsanto, Shurgard amongst others. The presence of these various international organizations and companies has given Brussels a distinct cosmopolitan flavor as it is nowadays home to various different nationalities. In fact it is estimated that nearly 25% of Brussels inhabitants are foreigners who are employed in these diverse international institutions and companies.

All this hectic intergovernmental and economic activity has thus firmly established Brussels as an extremely important destination on the business traveler's map. According to recent records it is estimated that approximately 14 million business travelers visit Brussels every year. Moreover Brussels is also easily accessible as it is well served by its Brussels National international airport which is located approximately 11km (6 miles) to the northeast of the city and provides connections between Brussels and various destinations all over the world. Apart from these numerous air links, Brussels is also connected by the high speed trains like the Thalys and Eurostar trains which come into its Gare du Midi and connect it to various other European cities like Paris, London, Cologne, Lille, Amsterdam, Bordeaux, Marseilles, Montpellier and Grenoble.

To serve the needs of the many business travelers who visit the Belgian capital all throughout the year, the city of Brussels is equipped with many diverse hotels which can easily accommodate all kinds of budgets. Some of the popular business hotels located here include Be Manos which is a boutique hotel located near the Gare du Midi, home of the Eurostar, the Dominican which is a stylish hotel located near the Grand'Place and the Opera House and the Hotel Amigo which is also located near the Grand'Place and is housed in a beautifully restored 18th century building.

Conducting business meetings over lunch is an accepted custom in Brussels and the city which is known for its numerous gastronomic contributions like waffles, the Brussels sprout, French fries, chocolate and artisanal beers is also home to many top notch restaurants like Comme chez Soi (the city's premier French restaurant) Notos, a Greek restaurant popular with politicians and diplomats and upscale Italian eateries, Dal Padrino and Barbanera all of which are favored venues for meetings.

Business Travel View - Melbourne

by Anjeeta 13. January 2010 08:27
  Melbourne, a city which is located on the northern bank of the Yarra River is Australia’s second largest city. It is also the capital of the state of Victoria and is an important financial and commercial hub which is home to Australia’s largest seaport. The city of Melbourne was founded by European settlers in 1835 though it was officially declared as a city by Queen Victoria in 1847. Melbourne gained much importance during the 1850’s Victorian gold rush when gold was discovered in the nearby cities of Beechworth, Ballarat and Bendigos. As a result of this gold rush, Melbourne became a boomtown which attracted gold seekers from all over the country as well as overseas. Such was the importance of the city of Melbourne in the years that followed the gold rush that it went on to serve as the capital of the newly created nation of Australia from 1901 to 1927.

Today Melbourne whose Central Business District is dotted with several magnificent 19th century buildings continues to enjoy a prominent position in the Australian economy. The city hosts the headquarters of many of Australia’s leading banks like the National Australia Bank and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group as well as the corporate headquarters of several large Australian companies like the mining giant, Rio Tinto and the telecommunications major Telstra along with the headquarters of several international companies. Further Melbourne is also home to Australia’s first stock exchange, which was established here in 1861 and which today exists in the form of the Australian Securities Exchange, formed from the amalgamation of the Australian Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange in 2006.

Aside from being a financial center, Melbourne is also home to several manufacturing and services industries like the Australian automobile industry though it is also an important hub for multimedia ventures and IT services. Additionally this energetic city is also a favored venue for domestic and international conferences as it is equipped with the state of the art Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Center which is located along the Yarra River in the Docklands area of the city. The Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Center has in fact recently added the 5000 capacity Plenary Hall to enhance its many myriad conference and convention facilities.

However apart from its business and commercial side, the vibrant city of Melbourne is also renowned the world over as a center for the arts, education, entertainment and sport. The sport of cricket is big business in Melbourne which is home to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) or the nursery of Australian cricket. Along with cricketing events, Melbourne also plays host to several popular international and domestic sporting events like the Australian Open Tennis Tournament, the Formula One Grand Prix and the Australian Rules Football Grand Final. Furthermore Melbourne is also home to the Australian film, music and television industries and it is a city that is visited by hordes of business and leisure tourists each year.

Melbourne also has more than 9000 city center hotels that range from five star properties to well known value brands.

If you need to travel to Melbourne on business, your journey from the US will almost always involve a long haul flight with one or two stops on the way and the only way you can hope to cope with the resultant jet lag and the fatigue is by traveling in the premier cabin of your preferred carrier.
