(ALSO FOR HANDYMANS)
The Vizitfabriek is the office of vizit, a restored 19th Century textilefactory in the centre of Ghent. On a regular basis we organise concerts, conferences, tastings and much more.
The VIZIT factory is a unique location that houses in the former cotton mill that was active during the 19th and the 20th century. The industrial character and the surrounding park offer a unique décor for your event. The VIZIT factory is available for events, seminars, meetings, receptions, photoshoots, concerts, theatre, exhibitions and so much more.
A historic location that is the kind that you clap in the middle
The VIZIT factory used to be a textile factory that printed on cotton and spun cotton to thread from 1851 to 1972 using steam machines. The cotton mill was powered by steam that was generated in the three kettles fuelled by coal. It is in this boiler house that the VIZIT factory is located. After the closure the factory was completely renovated with respect for the original atmosphere and has been surrounded by an open park that has a view on the cosy canal ‘de lieve’
The ideal space for whatever you want
VIZIT offers you a wide range of possibilities in two halls
‘The pump room’ is an all-purpose hall that is ideal for organizing concerts, dinner, parties, meetings or a theatre show. Literally everything is possible in the unique atmosphere of the factory. This is also the ideal location for photoshoots and video recordings for the VIZIT factory is very spacious.
‘The boiler room’ is decorated in a warm vintage style and is cosy and spacious. Ideal for an aperitif, exhibitions or concerts. In the boiler room there is a bar and has an adjacent kitchen, which is useful for caterers. In the boiler room the industrial vibe is present because of the economiser in the back of the room. But it is in front that the showpiece of the VIZIT factory stands: the 125 year old Lancashire boiler.
