On 6 December 2018, the experience.brussels exhibition will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Since its creation, some 300,000 visitors have come to discover Brussels in a different way. Today, to consolidate this success, the exhibition has launched a new concept and a contest with its Time Capsule.
Since 2008, experience.brussels has been showing visitors the capital of Europe as they have never seen it before. The exhibition presents Brussels, its districts and its communities in an innovative, playful and original manner. With a quiz, an interactive model of the Brussels-Capital Region, a photo exhibit and even sound umbrellas, visitors can discover the modern, cosmopolitan and multifaceted city that is Brussels.
The Time Capsule: A photo and a wish for Brussels in 2028
Experience.brussels aims to be a modern exhibition that keeps pace with the times. This is why it is constantly changing both its technology and its content. The latest new feature is its Time Capsule, which will be unveiled on 6 December 2018. Local inhabitants and visitors will be invited to take a selfie in one of their favourite places in Brussels and upload it to the site. They will then get free entry to the exhibition, where they will be able to access the Time Capsule and leave their wish for Brussels 10 years from now. Since the photos will not be unveiled for another 10 years, the Time Capsule will keep the ones exhibited online blurred for the next 10 years. The capsule will be sealed during the Iris Festival and on the 30th anniversary of the Brussels-Capital Region in 2019 and reopened in 2028.
A contest with a chance to win a gourmet meal
To coincide with the creation of the Time Capsule, visit.brussels is launching a contest. The first 500 participants to place their wish in the Time Capsule will get the chance to win a free gourmet trip on Tram Experience. The two winners will each win a meal for two on Tram Experience.
Renovations and the opening of a new exhibition hall
In addition to the Time Capsule and the campaign, the exhibition will be changing over the long term as four of its halls undergo renovation. And in 2021-2022, a new exhibition hall will open devoted to the culture and gastronomy of Brussels.
