Where events meet art ...

The auction house is a renowned player in the art market and auctions at home and abroad. Every month there are various auctions with masterpieces on the program. The auction room has a unique appearance and is equipped with an auditorium for 300 people (with 150 seats in the gallery). In addition, 5 multifunctional rooms are available. You receive your guests in the new stylish reception areas Box and Parcours. In the Verlat- and Museumzaal you can hold a gala dinner or walking dinner for mx 300 people, in the middle of all the works of art. Our challenge lies in devising and implementing high-profile total concepts for all your meetings, product presentations, receptions, walking dinners, gala evenings, seminars, press presentations and private events. Our various spaces have a stylish and sleek interior and offer unlimited possibilities for your event in Antwerp South.

Concepts around art

As a location, Platform stands for originality in terms of interpretation of your projects: in the well-known auction house, there is always a piece of antiques, design or a unique collection of art objects to be sold, under the hammer or by hand. Usually these are antiques or rarities that are offered directly from private collections. On request, the room can be decorated with paintings by Ancient, Romantic and Modern Masters, sculptures, old chandeliers, carpets, etc. You will find the appropriate setting with unique and original art objects that will turn your event into an unforgettable photo shoot.

Full service

Platform offers you a full service that guarantees a professional and original approach to the most diverse assignments. By continuously 'scouting' new trends and subsequently translating them into events, we are able to realize original and surprising events time and again.


Luxurious reception

Thanks to the newest rooms Box and Parcours, your guests will be immersed in the art world in an exclusive way as soon as they are received.

A revolutionary 'box' that was slid into the old 19th century depot, not only serves as a reception area, but also houses three offices. Around the Box are glass showcases and a painting wall where the latest art objects can be viewed before they are exhibited for the auction.

Box en Parcours can be hired for a luxurious reception for up to 100 people. This can be the starting point of a conference or seminar that continues in the large Auction Room. Your event ends in style with a walking dinner or gala dinner amidst all the artworks in the Museum of Verlatzaal.

Classy meeting

Do you need an intimate meeting that stimulates creativity? We have a beautiful auditorium for 150 guests that can be expanded to 280 seats with all the technology needed to realize a high-quality presentation. A seminar is in its original sense a seminar led by experts, a professional driving force that most companies consider vital for the further development of business and personnel. Pure knowledge transfer is useful, but nowadays it can be more in today's corporate culture. When organizing a meetcentive, there is a great need for a pleasant and stylish seminar location. Thanks to the auditorium and the possibility to provide small break-outs, the Platform has all the facilities available to realize your meeting at the highest level. The breaks are given an extra dimension by the presence of our barista champion who surprises your guests with artful latte art or do we provide a smoothie bar with fresh juices? After the formal part follows an appropriate lunch formula and we complete the “meetcentive” with a great workshop on art or outdoor activity in the lively South. Good for the spirit, good for the return.

Business meets pleasure

Product launch, customer event, presentation, press presentation,… once or more times a year every company has reason to talk to customers, relations or colleagues. In Platform we receive your business relations for a stylish reception. We serve exquisite seasonal snacks at a gastronomic level or provide tasting buffets that are built around taste experience. During the reception we provide a delicious cocktail and in addition to the drinks that are available at the bar, some top wines or Belgian beers are opened throughout the evening to enjoy with the amuses. That way everyone gets the chance to fully indulge his or her taste buds.

We also cater to two completely different styles of receptions, the business class upstairs, and the trendy lounge downstairs. This way everyone feels optimally welcome and you get a nice synergy between your guests. A low-hanging mist, trendy decorated standing tables and beautiful flower arrangements with countless candles give that wonderfully cozy feeling. This is called Burgundian networking ... If you wish, the atmosphere can be expanded with appropriate musical entertainment to round off the evening on a high note. Good for the spirit, good for the return.

In Platform we create your business event where your guests can dine, socialize and party in a relaxed atmosphere. Your guests arrive at the attractively lit location and we provide a stylish outdoor act as a welcome. We welcome your guests in a stylish manner with a glass of cava to offer the guests a stylish welcome. During the evening and during dinner, atmospheric jazz, soul & lounge music will be played in this aperitif room. This is followed by “le moment suprême”, the speaker takes the guests through the figures and goals and a few employees are put in the spotlight in an appropriate manner. We then serve a delicious walking dinner. Culinary surprises, served with respect for the basic ingredients. Your guests will be amazed by the taste explosions and artistic dishes. After dinner we provide a nice lounge setting where your guests can enjoy a tasting of Belgian beers or Whiskey & Cigars on the terrace. Good for the spirit, good for the return.

Gala dinner

The champagne-cooled, beautifully set dinner tables, a pianist provides the right background music upon entry, everyone is dressed in evening attire for your gala dinner. Whether it concerns a benefit evening, a gala dinner for business relations or an intimate dinner for your guests, we ensure an unforgettable luxurious evening. During the aperitif we provide a beautiful champagne tower and we serve exquisite amuses for your guests. Our professional photographer will take portrait photos of your guests with their partner or colleagues upon arrival, this way everyone can take home a tangible memory of this evening.

After the reception, your guests are asked to take a seat at the beautifully set tables and there is an opportunity for a word of welcome. Afterwards, the first wine will be served and our waiting staff will serve the starter. The various wines and different courses follow each other at a leisurely pace so that your guests can fully enjoy all the goodies. After the tasty gala dinner, your guests can enjoy a coffee from our barista, and for the gourmets among us, a whiskey & cigar tasting. Good for the spirit, good for the return.
