How did we do it?


The Gentse Winterfeesten are an example of a Veldeman logistics masterpiece. In 2013, the City of Ghent established a tender including a request for a concept that would immerse the Ghent inner city in a magical winter atmosphere. It was decided to hold the Gentse Winterfeesten on no fewer than 3 squares: the Korenmarkt, Emile Braunplein and Sint-Baafsplein.


No fewer than 18 experienced Veldeman tent builders got the job done in only 3 days – an excellent performance considering the scale of the project! 6 lorries, 1,125 m² of cassette floors, 1,275 m² of tents (with cassette floor and counterweights) and 550 m² of scaffolding for level differences that run up to one meter.
From the long-standing collaboration with Veldeman, it is clear that the organisation has every confidence in the future: all the way up until 2019 we will answer the call for one of the largest and most beautiful winter villages in the country.

Quinten Goekint, administrator of EMO bvba explains:
“Building an ice rink is a great logistical challenge, something that Veldeman grasps perfectly. Veldeman knows what the weak points are that deserve extra attention in order to bring a project to a successful conclusion. It is a large player on the market and a strong partner that is able to carry out a large number of projects within the set time frame.”
