Conference venue

Het Pand

Address: Onderbergen 1, 9000 Gent, Belgium
Het Pand is one of the most prized and most frequently rented locations the University of Ghent has to offer. The location is in the heart of the city of Ghent on the banks of the river Leie, near the medieval port with the guildhalls as its remnants. The building used to be a Dominican Monastery, and is now housing the Congress Center of Ghent University, as well as several museum collections, exhibition rooms kept in the original state, and a top-restaurant with professional catering.
