Today, we meet Allison Oostendorp who is Project Development Manager at Be-Here, our newest venue.

Hi Allison, what role do you play at your venue?

“We are a very small but enthusiastic team of 3 at BE-HERE! I’m one of the coordinators and I handle especially the events, the communication and all the different projects and initiatives of our entrepreneurs, neighborhood or other collaborations”.

3 strong points that make your venue unique?

“-> The beautiful renovated building and its huge renovated hall surrounded by delicious food shops

-> The great entrepreneurs who are active in sustainable projects, cultural and social initiatives and even a nice offer of wellbeing sessions. That’s why we call it our “Sustainable Village”!

-> The good vibes that everybody can feel !”

What facilities does your venue offer for a B2B event?

Grande Halle: A large and bright hall under a magnificent glass roof (1.200m²) that will impress every guest.
Salle Byrrh: A quiet and bright meeting room on the first floor (70m²).
Salle Violet: Nice and intimate meeting room (30m²) on the ground floor with easy access, also for people with reduced mobility.
Studio: A pleasant space available by the day for wellness initiatives or other quiet workshops.”

You are a BSV member. Why did you join us ?

“Our sister, Ateliers des Tanneurs, is also a BSV member and we were very happy to be part of the network. Together we are stronger !”

Last question on the future of events: How did you cope following the pandemic and how do you see the evolution of events in the months to come?

“We openend only 6 months before the pandemic. I can only say that this crisis was very heavy for us and our entrepreneurs.
But we came out stronger and with a lot of creativity ! We are looking forward to show our beautiful sustainable projects to the public !”

Thank you Allison 😉
