Coralie Berael

Forest National Arena

Coralie is Venue Manager at the Forest National Arena in Brussels since 2010, a legendary venue in the heart of Brussels.

She graduated as an MSc in Geography environmental Risks and Human Security(Belgium) in 1994 and delivered a master thesis about the effects of climate change on Mediterranean desertification and land use. The early findings of this research were part of the European Medalus project and allowed to build up strong foundations for weaving environmental concern throughout her career within operations, building & facilities management and online corporate communication. As the world is waking up and evolving very quickly, Coralie has made it her mission to encourage sustainable projects across the Sportpaleis Group, recently part of the Live Nation family. The entertainment industry still represents a major challenge on the green front, though we strongly believe that by ‘leading-by-example’, implementing and improving processes at venues and festivals, the influence of the music industry can truly reach much further down the line. Forest National is a member of the EAA (European Arenas Association) with a capacity of up to 8.000. This legendary concert hall built in 1970, is part of theSportpaleis Group which consists of a further 3 arenas (Sportpaleis & Lotto ArenaAntwerp, Ethias Arena Hasselt) and 3 theatres (Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen, Capitole Ghent, Ethias Theater)
