Conference dinner

The conference dinner with the ECLAS awards ceremony will take place at Thagaste Monastery. Thagaste is located in a unique monastery where monks still live and work. The beautifully restored inner courtyard at the heart of the monastery is a true oasis of peace.

Thagaste is more than just an event area. The monastery is also known for its unique and rich heritage. You will discover monumental paintings in the cloisters, and each conference room is decorated with artwork, gathered during the rich and long history of the monastery.

The monastery also owns a beautiful, historic library. And last but not least, there is the St. Stephen’s parish church with its monumental Baroque organ built in 1873 by Jean-Philippe Forrest. You can find more information about Thagaste here.

You can reach the monasterium of Thagaste from the location of the conference at a 20 minute walk alongside the beautiful river Leie, right through the city center of Ghent.
