Sylvester Productions wins Benelux Event Award

11 May 2017

Leuven MindGate member Sylvester Productions managed to win a Benelux Event Award (BEA) for the Tall Ships Races 2016. The Belgian events sector rewarded Sylvester's efforts in organising last summer's largest free public event.

The Tall Ships Races are a renowned international sailing contest which 'dropped anchor' in Antwerp from 7 to 10 July 2016. It was all hands on deck for Sylvester to give all 50 visiting ships and over 4.400 crew members with 30 different nationalities a warm welcome.

Apart from that, Sylvester also took care of the experience for all visitors. Walks through the shipyards were included in the program and even water buses brought visitors to the event, a first for the Tall Ships Races.
