Unizo Vlaams-Brabant & Brussels has proclaimed event agency and production house SYLVESTER as provincial 'SME of the Year' on Friday evening. Sylvester can start dreaming of the national title. This will be announced on 6 December during the Unizo Topseminar.
Sylvester is the country's longest-established production house. The Haacht-based company has been a fixture in the event and television world since 1993. Highly acclaimed TV programs such as 'Feeling for Tumor' and 'The Entrance of Saint Nicholas' are on their list of achievements, but also well-attended events such as the reopening of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, the Tall Ships Races and the merger event of Port of Antwerp Bruges.
The company stood out to the jury because it grew from 15 to 33 employees in the midst of the corona crisis. By developing its own virtual event venue platform 'MEEPLE' and by specializing in live streams with unbridled passion and energy, Sylvester can call itself a leader in organizing high-quality physical, online and hybrid events. Thanks to internal studies, strategic analyzes and the unique cross-fertilization between their TV, video and events team, the company also understands the new needs and trends within the hybrid post-corona communication world like no other.
“Sylvester is a deserved winner, ambassador and source of inspiration for other entrepreneurs,” says Elke Tielemans, director of Unizo Vlaams-Brabant & Brussels.
CEO Geert Vanoverschelde sees the title as recognition for the boundless commitment and passionate drive of the entire team. “Instilling quality day after day in what you do, but also in how you do it, that is in the Sylvester DNA. Connecting people interactively with our events and audiovisuals is our drive, but also within our own team of Sylvesterians,” says the CEO, who adds that innovation combined with a positive corporate culture is a top recipe for success.
On December 6, Sylvester will know if it will also win the national title.
