Sylvester Creates. Captures. Moves.

Sylvester is the longest-existing production house in Belgium, but we are not yet dealing with a walking frame. With TV, video, live events and (since this year) online and virtual events, we have 4 specializations in-house, with 1 common goal: telling stories and connecting staff, customers and / or stakeholders with a full experience. Today we have hundreds of events and programs on the counter. Realized by fantastic teams who in some wonderful way always manage to turn the idea you have in your head into reality. And also within your budget. Programs, videos and events that resonate.

Set up events that bring people and companies closer together and make them grow. Creating films and television programs that hit ten strings at once. And in the mix of these areas of expertise, we also create high-profile online events (live streams) and virtual events with our self-built virtual event platform MEEPLE, which has now been echoed abroad.


Every day is a pleasure to accomplish great things. To organize the most complex projects in such a way that it seems as if it took no effort. To smash the walls between television, video and (digital) events with the creative sledgehammer. And thereby achieve results that open mouths and create pure magic.

There are trendy terms for this, such as cross-media, multi-platform and live communication. But our cases say more than 1,000 buzzwords. Create, invent, organize, delegate, develop, design. We are born for it. It is the accelerator of our existence and we still have a tight grip on the control stick after 25 years. Every little aspect of your assignment is handled by our people. From idea to concept. From logistics to production. And we are proud of that. Because control freaks? Yes, we are. But the result is also corresponding.

Interested? Contact us and we will sit down or set up a video meeting.

Sylvester is the best :-)

With full confidence I appeal to Sylvester to help devise, support and realize our events; and this from the smallest idea, to a super production with all the bells and whistles. Nothing is too small for them. They come up with the most original concepts, are super flexible and immediately follow the objectives and take into account all possible subtleties. Class and quality! It should go without saying, but Sylvester is very transparent and clear about budgets and timings.
In short, a fantastic company with great people to work with!

Professionalism with a smile

Sylvester has a very competent, always enthusiastic and unburdening team, with whom it is a pleasure to work together. This year they again provided an impeccable follow-up, direction and capture of our hybrid two-day event. I really appreciate that they always think along to achieve the best possible results and thanks to their tons of experience, there is always something you would not have thought of yourself. Recommended!

Dive into the future - Port of Antwerp-Bruges


Two world ports that join forces and dive into the future together, that is something that you cannot just pass by.

To celebrate the start of Port of Antwerp-Bruges in an appropriate and memorable way, we were looking for a creative and reliable partner who could help us with this.
We found this partner in Sylvester, they came up with a strong concept, a well-developed plan and they fully understood our request to connect the 2 ports.

Sylvester created a custom-made immersive ceiling projection for us, through which you, as a guest, entered an underwater world and dived into the future together with Port of Antwerp-Bruges.
To highlight the synergy of both ports, the catering served dishes from hotel schools in Antwerp and Bruges and a live duet between a Bruges and Antwerp youth choir provided the ultimate goosebumps moment.

The start of Port of Antwerp-Bruges was successfully initiated, thanks in part to Sylvester.
Their expertise in production as well as their flexible and reliable team ensured a pleasant cooperation with the desired result.

Thank you Sylvester.

Sylvester, the whole team, takes you on a journey. Where do you want to go, what do you definitely want to see, what does it all cost, which surprises do I not want to face and which ones do, how can we excel, ...? Thanks for the unforgettable adventure.

Sylvester made our Co-innovation Tour a success

After 2 years we were finally able to organize an event for our customers with numerous demo installations about our products and solutions. Sylvester contributed to the success of both events in Flanders and Wallonia. Beautiful locations were presented. I can recommend Sylvester as they work very professionally and are also very flexible and helpful. Top!

Sylvester makes our Samana Future Congress a success

It is not so easy to explain to chronically ill people, informal carers and volunteers in an understandable and enthusiastic way what the main thrust of the new policy plan is. Sylvester has miraculously succeeded in this in the corona time with a digital, interactive and accessible event. An inspiring and in-depth event that was evaluated as extremely positive and professional by the 500 attendees. An energy boost for the functioning of our association. Thank you Sylvester!

Volley Haasrode Leuven and Sylvester join forces to realize an ambitious virtual business event

After 9 successful physical business events - the last one in January 2020 with 620 participants - Volley Haasrode Leuven (VHL) approached one of the largest volleyball clubs in Flanders, Sylvester, to produce the 10th anniversary edition completely virtually. It has been an exceptional success with more than 700 paying participants and a program and end product that has been widely praised. The program was moderated by Annelies Van Herck, Michael Van Droogenbroeck and Ruben Van Gucht. There was a debate with Alexander De Croo, Jan Jambon and Elio Di Rupo and a conversation with Tia Hellebaut, Kim Gevaert, Tom Boonen and Hendrik Tuerlinckx. Three musical intermezzos by Ozark Henry and fragments of interviews with ten speakers from previous editions (Eddy Merckx, Koen Geens, Theo Francken, Roberto Martinez, Bob Verbeeck, Nina Derwael, Evi Van Acker, Mark Waer, Gerd Vande Broek, Mohamed Ridouani and John Porter). Working with Sylvester was extremely professional and pleasant. Sylvester has continuously contributed ideas and co-created. Recommended !

Online European Music Festival for Youth in 35 countries and 2500 participants

The fact that the 69th edition of our festival could take place in these circumstances is partly due to the Meeple team. From the first contact, the team has shown commitment and trust. The employees have acted in a very professional manner to make our initiative a success. This firm no-nonsense approach was of the same drive as that of our own team, which consists entirely of volunteers.
Thanks to the open collaboration, we were able to set up a personalized online platform in a very short time. Fast feedback, clear answers, a proactive attitude and a stable solution ensured a successful festival day for our participants. A festival experience through the Meeple platform where we could offer our own jury concerts, workshops, live shows in an intuitive and smooth way to the 2,500 participants from 35 countries worldwide.
A successful match that tastes like more. Although of course we hope that the next edition can go live again. But who knows with an extra online side ...

Fantastic virtual award ceremony for EU trade association

The team at Sylvester created a fantastic virtual event for us (an EU trade association based in Brussels), which was live streamed from Antwerp. We needed to adapt an existing physical event (industry awards show) to an online format. The team had lots of creative ideas to make the show work with the audience watching at home. The result was a highly entertaining and professional event. The team are very friendly and supportive and we will not hesitate to work with them again.

Webinar NL + FR on ecological remodeling Triodos Bank

On March 24 and 25, we organized a webinar on ecological renovation together with Sylvester Events. Our office was converted into a real TV studio.
A very nice and professional team to work with: they think along with the customer, look for solutions, and give suggestions based on their rich experience. Worth repeating.

Tourist virtual experiences

Sylvester made 4 videos for Tourism Flanders. The assignment was to bring new tourism products to our international trade contacts, as they cannot come here to discover them themselves. It became 4 "virtual experiences" around Ensor and Ostend, Genk and LABIOMISTA, Ghent and Van Eyck and Beer & amp; Cycling in the Westhoek. The idea to work with the same flying reporter for the 4 videos as a common thread comes from Sylvester. We had less than a month for this and we more than succeeded. Received a lot of positive reactions from our trade contacts, the partners who cooperated and colleagues. It was a very successful collaboration.
