For any type
of event

Anything is possible

A successful event depends on several factors. Not least upon the location – an inspiring place where your visitors can immerse themselves in the subject of the event in peace and quiet. The atmosphere and appearance of the location play an extremely important part in that.

The historic halls and imposing foyers (links to the halls page) leave an indelible impression, are inspiring and provide the necessary peace and focus. The numerous smaller rooms and halls provide an opportunity to hold additional workshops and can be used as break-out rooms.

From conferences, meetings, cultural activities, corporate events to book presentations, debates, brand launches, … everything is possible!

Each room possesses the necessary Wi-Fi, projection, sound system and other facilities. Hybrid events can also be held.

Together, we will look at your needs and offer the most suitable formula or package, with or without the desired catering. A fixed contact person will liaise with you to create the perfect, tailor-made event.


The Bijlokesite is a green and inspiring oasis of peace a short distance from the historical heart of Ghent. Lonely Planet once described Ghent as ‘Belgium’s best kept secret’. Ghent is the city of the Mystic Lamb, Charles V and the famous three towers! The Bijlokesite is home to one of the most exceptional medieval buildings – the renewned Bijloke Hospital. For 800 years, it was a hospital, but nowadays, it is an extra special MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) venue.

Cultural hotspot

In addition to being a MICE venue, the buildings on the Bijlokesite also have a life as a city museum and state-of-the-art concert hall. This makes this cultural hotspot in Ghent the ideal location to combine a conference or event with a fascinating museum visit or resounding concert.
