You need some quality elements to organise a good conference: great speakers, delicious food and a great social programme. Ghent is the place to be for the latter. The city lends itself perfectly to exploration or transport by water.

Experts will agree: Ghent is best explored from the water. You can get a taste of the city’s atmosphere while passing by the most impressive attractions. As Ghent has so many waterways, you can explore the entire city from the water. Choose the lazy option and be sailed around by a boating company, choose the in-between option and drive a boat yourself in small groups, or choose the full-on sporty option and rent kayaks. For transportation from your conference venue to your gala venue, you can all take the water taxi. Or make Ghent’s water a real theme and organise a reception or concert aboard a barge.
