The Middenfabriek, built in 1863, is the heart of SugarFactory. As soon as you come in you understand why. Immediately upon entering you will get a view of the impressive atrium with no fewer than three storeys. Reminders of the building’s original purpose are everywhere you look: boilers, pillars, machinery. It makes an inspirational setting for a hackathon.
More and more companies are investing in this concept, which originated in Silicon Valley. At 6,000 square metres, the Middenfabriek is SugarFactory’ biggest space, making it perfect for hackathons. Its many period details provide an unusual backdrop, and it offers space for accompanying events and catering facilities.
And because a standard internet connection is not enough where hackathons are concerned, we have a high-power WiFi network. You can also combine different spaces to meet the specific needs of your hackathon. Beyond Banking organised a highly successful hackathon at SugarFactory.
The Middenfabriek is connected to the Pulppersloods and Binnenstraat event spaces.
