The Tall Ships Races are an internationally renowned sailing competition which took place in Antwerp from 7 to 10 July 2016. Sylvester called all hands on deck to provide a warm welcome to the 50 visiting ships and the 4,400-strong crews hailing from 30 different countries. The crews consisted in large part of trainees: younger people with diverse backgrounds united on the giants of the sea for the adventure of their lives. Among them were 80 Belgians.
We also ensured that the visitors could enjoy the family event of the year featuring all of that maritime beauty. Through a pedestrian boulevard from the Steenplein to the Rhine Cay, you could admire the ships and visit the city on the water for four days long. On the sidelines of the Tall Ships project, we also used water buses to bring visitors from Hoboken and Hemiksem to the Steenplein. This was a first for Antwerp, which the visitors enjoyed with great enthusiasm because of our fresh and exciting approach. Sylvester was also the organiser of services when the Tall Ships Races took place in 2010.
Telenet is a leader in Belgian telecom, media and entertainment industry but since the acquisition of BASE, the brand new Telenet Group can no longer be held back! We hold an annual event for the staff of Telenet, a live show worthy of TV, with this year's theme "Unstoppable." In addition to the realization of a compelling show - in which our own people are assigned special roles including with the live band - we also made several entertaining videos including candid camera-style features. The entire event along with a walking dinner took place in the Ethias Arena in Hasselt. The party continued in the Versuz club, hired especially for this occasion.
Sylvester has been a permanent partner with Telenet, organizing its internal company events since 2009. Each year we create an appropriate them which is then incorporated into the entire show.
