Coralie Berael

Forest National Arena (BE)

Coralie has been venue manager at the Forest National arena in Brussels since 2010, a legendary venue where she experienced her very first concert as a 6 year old - when her musical passion was first ignited. 

After she graduated from a MSc in Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security (BE) in 1994, she moved to London and built-up 15 years of experience in business analysis, building & facilities management and online corporate communication across the UK and EU mainland.  

Since operating in the heart of Brussels, the activity has been dominated by security and safety issues lately and the focus of the entertainment industry has shifted overnight from creating unforgettable experiences to keeping people safe and alive.

Forest National is a member of the EAA (European Arenas Association) and has a capacity of up to 8,000. This legendary concert hall was built in 1970, and is part of the Sportpaleis Group, which consists of a further three arenas (Sportpaleis & Lotto Arena Antwerp, Ethias Arena Hasselt) and three theatres (Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen, Capitole Ghent, Ethias Theater).

When having a day off Coralie likes to…  go to a concert or festival to observe, get inspired, and exchange notes.
