Hackathons are an innovative way of achieving your business plans. It’s not surprising that more and more companies are using them and looking for suitable venues. The SugarFactory team has hackathon expertise, and the Pulppersloods makes the perfect setting for such an unusual event.

Its imposing pillars, brick walls and high windows give it a unique atmosphere, and with an area of 1,000 square metres, there’s plenty of room for the hackathon itself and a programme of accompanying events.  We have all the facilities you need – and because a standard internet connection won’t be enough, these include a high-power wireless network. Beyond Banking organised a highly successful hackathon at SugarFactory.

You can also combine different spaces to meet the specific needs of your hackathon. The Pulppersloods connects to the Middenfabriek and the Binnenstraat.

SugarFactory was the Netherlands’ oldest sugar factory, operating from 1863 to 1992 and owned by CSM Suiker. The air was full of steam, the din of cranes and other machinery, and the smell of sugarbeet.

Since 2002, it has been undergoing redevelopment by the Cobraspen Group, transforming it into a unique event location while keeping the factory itself fully intact. It incorporates all the advanced technology you’d expect from a modern event venue, but this has been done subtly and with respect for the factory’s character.

The unique décor is testimony to the former sugar factory’s industrial grandeur, and it is still making history with many memorable events.
