Sylvester Creates. Captures. Moves.

Sylvester is the longest existing production house in Belgium, but we do not have a walker yet. We have 3 specializations in house with TV, video and events, with 1 common goal: telling stories. Today we have hundreds of programs and events on the counter. Realized by fantastic teams that somehow miraculously manage to turn the idea you have in your head into reality. And also within your budget. Programs, videos and events that continue to reverberate.

Organize events that bring people and companies closer together and make them grow. Create films and television programs that hit ten strings at once. Every day is a pleasure to do great things. To organize the most complex projects in such a way that it seems as if it has taken no effort. To smash the walls between television, video and events with the creative sledgehammer. And thereby achieve results that open mouths and create pure magic.

There are hip terms for that, 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 were born for it. It is the accelerator of our existence and we still have the control stick firmly after 25 years. Every small aspect of your assignment is taken care of 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 correspondingly.

Interested? Contact us and we will sit down at the table!

Creative virtual toast to the new year in our virtual NY event venue MEEPLE
28 October 2020

“We are no longer allowed to hold each other, but we cannot let go of each other either”: if our Minister of Health says so, who are we to argue with him? The start of the new year and the goodbye to the old are invariably moments to come together and connect with colleagues, customers and stakeholders. This New Year ...

The right partner for a successful event

Sylvester helped us to organize an online event, where we wanted to enter into a dialogue with some 60 professional stakeholders (NGOs, experts, sector organizations, young people, ...) In retrospect, the choice for Sylvester was absolutely the right choice. The online platform Meeple is well put together and met our needs to create as much interactivity and dynamism with the participants as possible, despite the virtual environment. The biggest plus for us was the team at Sylvester. They know very well what they are doing, are very flexible, think along and have a good laugh! We could trust them blindly and that is what you expect from an event partner. Recommended!

Top team for live stream Voka VB Verderkijkers 2020

Very professional, passionate, going for perfection, flexibility, top quality are just a few words to describe the collaboration. All viewers were astonished by the quality and smoothness of the broadcast. The best they had seen this year and that was reflected in the compliments we received. For our team it was a top experience, because the entire crew took us through the entire process. This was the 1st time for Voka Vlaams-Brabant that we organized such a large online production. Thanks to the very professional guidance under the command of Eveline and Hendrik, we were able to bring this to a very successful conclusion. Our great appreciation also goes out to the entire production team involved, because thanks to them this has become a gem. Sylvester & amp; co. Big thanks and a lot of respect. See you for the next event.

Successful online alternative for opening academic year

The suddenly changed world no longer made it possible to organize the opening of the academic year for Antwerp higher education in the traditional form. A solid and attractive alternative had to be found for the 1,600 attendees who previously came to the Stadsschouwburg and the big walking lunch on the Theaterplein. Various providers of "conference platforms" were questioned. Extensive video calls were also conducted with international providers such as vfairs.com and hopin.to. Aware of the risks as an early adopter, we have joined forces with Associatie Universiteit & amp; Antwerp colleges nevertheless took the plunge to opt for Sylvester's Meeple platform. We knew Sylvester as an organizer of major events - they worked together for several years for STUDAY, the Antwerp student reception with more than 20,000 attendees - but Meeple was completely new to us. The intention was to make a mix of pre-recorded elements and an important "live" part. Interaction had to be possible at all times. One-to-one video chat was a requirement. Robustness had to be guaranteed. Extensive use of proprietary branding elements was also a priority. We wanted to offer those present the experience of being able to move from room to room in a 'conference center', visit different stages and find each other in a plenary room or private conversation. This has been successful. It was also important for us as a client to be able to work with trusted suppliers for parts of the event. For the pre-recorded videos, we worked with hartstikkide.com, a small local player who immediately understands where we want to go. For the live studio part we wanted to stay in Antwerp and we chose storycatchers.be. The look & amp; feel was in the hands of our house designer Erik Desombere. That was no problem for Sylvester. The opening eventually had all the ingredients of the usual event but with an online touch. It became an opening with more momentum, with more options and individual experiences, a lot of interaction. There were five dance and music stages, a live presenter connecting the parts, video quotes, a remix of the Flemish Community hymn, a live plenary roundtable with video quotes, a much-frequented network lounge and continuous active chat. After the plenary part, there were also four discussion tables with the participants in the round table discussion. In short: the atmosphere of a lively opening of the academic year was matched. In the end, we turned out to be the very first users of the platform. We were able to take advantage of that to see a lot of supporting horns and bells, especially in the area of branding, created. Sylvester has always responded positively to our questions and comments.

Nice cooperation!

It is not easy: suddenly developing a fully digital (and fascinating) concept for an event that you normally organize physically every year. But together with Sylvester this worked out fantastically. Even more: it was simply a success with more than 350 viewers! The collaboration with Eveline & amp; Femke (and for a short time also with Loan) went very smoothly. When we suggested working for the location with another partner, they were very flexible. Very nice working together! We can only recommend Sylvester. Thanks for the great guidance!

Great first collaboration with Sylvester

It was the first time that we collaborated with Sylvester: The switch from a physical to a strong and exciting digital event was the challenge! This professional team showed a strong commitment to our story from the start, we were immediately on the same wavelength. Working with An Moors, Tim Vlummens and their team was pleasant. Before, during and after the event, there was clear and fast communication and good agreements were made that were always met. Their high availability, accessibility and eye for detail are professional features that we particularly appreciated. Our digital event was original and a bull's eye; it was enjoyed by all participants and exceeded our expectations. Thanks Sylvester, working with you is a must.

Bye Femke and bye Eveline, Are we satisfied with the broadcast? More than 100%. Mathematically that is not possible of course. I mean: way beyond expectations. And our bar was set high. We are super happy to have been able to work with you, with a super professional attitude in all areas. Attention to small details. Which are not so visible individually. But taking the whole thing to a higher level. Oh we can really enjoy that. You have also made an effort to understand who we are and what we want to bring to our network. Fulfilled all promises: not so obvious either. Pleasant to deal with. Worth repeating. Please forward this hymn to your boss? Because you deserve a big compliment.

Extremely professional cooperation!

A well-designed giant picnic: Sylvester Productions originally worked on that for Welzijnszorg vzw.
The outbreak of the corona crisis 2 months before the event itself put a stop to this.
Fortunately, we could count on fast and concrete thinking from all event producers.
In no time, Sylvester's employees had come up with an alternative to our online celebration of the end of 50 years of campaigning. Based on a quick briefing, we witnessed the unwavering enthusiasm of everyone within this event company. From graphic designer to TV producer: everyone was available. Every step within the (rather exciting) process was worked out down to the last detail.
On the day itself we were welcomed warmly and corona-proof in their own studio.
From concept to end result, we felt a very strong commitment to our story and we could count on clear communication.

Party 30 years GO! - May 3, 2019 - Lotto Arena Antwerp

The GO! celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2019. The apotheosis of this festive year was a real festival on May 3, 2019 in the Lotto Arena Antwerp.
The day was divided into two parts. In the morning, we welcomed primary school students, and in the afternoon we welcomed students from secondary education and school teams. In total we were present with 14,000 people. Sylvester guided us through this event.
The first idea was to organize an open air festival. The tickets flew out the door faster than expected. In no time our pasture was full and we had to disappoint schools that could no longer register. In order to give as many schools as possible the opportunity to celebrate, we had to adjust our program last-minute.
Sylvester searched and found a solution for us. By changing the program and the location, we were able to double our capacity and this within the set initial budget. For example, we went from an open-air festival to a spectacular stage show in the Lotto Arena in Antwerp with numerous acts, all in line with our pedagogical project.
Sylvester took care of the entire organization from start to finish. They listened carefully to our wishes and expectations. They also always stay within budget and let you know if there are changes. It is very nice to work with them. You get what they promise and more. They always work with very professional teams. Everyone knows their job perfectly.
As an organizer you can sleep on roses.

Staff party 2018

In September 2018 we collaborated with Ben & Hendrik van Sylvester for our staff party on the occasion of our 50th anniversary. They are very nice, enthusiastic people and very pleasant to work with. Our event was well prepared down to the last detail and we did not have to do it ourselves. They take everything off your hands so that you do not experience any stress yourself.
It is not often that everyone is really satisfied with the event, but that was the case in this case. We only heard positive comments from all employees and everyone enjoyed a wonderful day. So the ideas they put forward for activities were perfect and doable for everyone. That made the event a great success!

Sylvester Productions told our story 'Flight Forward'

Last year, the Operational Site Management entity of the Agency for Nature and Forests ran the 'Flight Forward' project. A project in which foresters, green workers and administrators all over Flanders participated intensively.
Now, a year later, we are completing 9 of the 15 projects and it should not go unnoticed!
Our event "Landing, one year of Flight Forward" on 26/10/2017 in ANTWERP EXPO MEETING CENTER has been a success thanks to the collaboration with Sylvester Productions. Together we have found the right mix for an excitingly varied day program. Towards the event, we could count on solid support and during the event EVERYTHING went smoothly including timing ;-).
Sylvester Productions provided the direction and stage techniques. A valuable collaboration!
Quote from Stefan Borry, project manager operational site management: “I am very satisfied this day, people have transcended themselves. I've seen a lot more than I hoped. It was actually almost unbelievable. It was a very intense year, it was a very intense day, but we are here, we have landed, we can move forward! ”

Ring Day - Antwerp, September 2017

We worked with Sylvester on the 'Ring Days' assignment: six days on which the design teams for the roof of the Antwerp ring road entered into a dialogue with schools, residents, neighborhood organizations and citizen movements. This assignment was carried out under a framework contract from the Flemish government for the organization of events.
Sylvester nevertheless established a flawless organization within a very tight deadline. During the holiday season, the entire team responded very flexibly to the expectations and wishes of the extensive project team. Partly thanks to their efforts, the Ring Days were conducted professionally. The project team was able to put all concerns about logistics and practical organization aside and focus on its core business: the dialogue with residents of Antwerp and Zwijndrecht. Thanks for the great cooperation.

Samenwerking ikv The Tall Ships Races 2016

Following a public tender by the city of Antwerp and the Antwerp Port Authority, the organization of The Tall Ships Races (7-10 July 2016) was assigned to Sylvester Productions and PushToTalk for the search for sponsors and hospitality partners on the one hand, and the complete logistics organization of this large-scale event.
The collaboration with Sylvester Productions was very professional. Meetings took place on a regular basis with various parties (city, port, nautical working group,…) and Sylvester's team. During these meetings, pain points were tackled and opportunities were created.
During the four-day event, everything went smoothly. The implementing partners scored very well in various areas:
- City and port always had a point of contact. The project manager also had a complete overview of the entire event, which meant that last minute issues were tackled very quickly. Moreover, the input of various parties (both national and international) had to be taken into account, but that also went smoothly. These different partners spoke only full of praise for the organization after the event.
- In terms of logistics, Sylvester Productions was a very strong and reliable partner. Several aspects were taken into account with attention to the needs of all partners involved.
- Budget management was transparent. The clients always had an overview of the resources.
- Also elements that were not originally part of the public tender were smoothly executed by Sylvester Productions. For example, they fully supported the recruitment of trainees and made extra efforts for partnerships with pleasure boat companies.
The visitor satisfaction survey showed that 74.3% had a very positive impression of this event. The city can only join that.

Every year the Saint sets foot in Antwerp. This is realized through a collaboration between the city of Antwerp and Sylvester. Although this is an annual project, there is always something that needs to be changed every year. Due to the flexibility and professionalism we always get out. Consultation and mutual respect contribute to a successful event. Since different parties are involved (production, actors, participating groups, security personnel, logistics personnel, ...) it is not always easy to get all this done at the same time. The timing is sometimes a bit tight, but that makes the challenge even greater!
