The Distillery is a concept, created and developed in 2016 by a brother and sister from Ghent. We are a unique team of talented people, all inspired by the same concept and driven by being at our best in what we do.
Open communication, trust and humor is what binds us and makes us a great team (and a well-oiled distillation-machine).
Being part of various organizing committees during our school time in Ghent, we experienced ourselves the challenges of ticket distribution. The Distillery offers a solution to both organizer and party-goer.
We also aim to be a forerunner in greening the ticketing process in Belgium: in three years, we want scanned ticketing via smartphone to be the norm and reduce the printed ticketing to zero.
We believe this simple and practical concept will help people enjoy their free time even more.
We believe in ourselves and in the power of the team.
We believe this drop can start the ripple of a greener world.
We are proud to be part of ARTEpreneur, a cooperative association giving advice and support to young companies.

We would like to introduce RIK BAETE to you. He is considered being a top law-student at the University of Ghent and not to mention, a trustworthy friend of The Distillery. Rik is in charge of the legal section of the company, including making up contracts, creating standard clauses and securing your privacy.
He is looking forward to hearing from you, if you encounter any legal issues. You can contact Rik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the beginning of the project, SHAUN JANSSENS has been there for us,
he lead us to software, introduced us in the ARTEpreneur-group and finalized and secured our site. If you are interested in creating a site, don’t hesitate to mail him. You can contact Shaun at email@example.com.
THE FACULTY OF LAW OF THE UNIVERSITY OF GHENT gave us the opportunity to work with some of their master-students. Business Law professor Diederik Bruloot integrated us in a legal clinic. Privacy and Security are values we consider to be of grand importance for our customers. The legal clinic helps us to guarantee these in the best possible way.
The concept was founded in the year of 2014 by DORAN LAGAERT, who is also one of our team members. The roots of his subtle attention for detail, that is found in his work, stretch out all over The Distillery, which is something essential in our branche.
Alpha Photography provides a series of unique pictures and aftermovies for us to use in the store, our Facebook-page and pretty much everywhere else.
Negenduust is lead and owned by THOMAS BEYLS, an ambitious entrepeneur and above all a very creative mind. The combination of quotes, prints and durable fabric explains why the brand is such a hit among young and old.
He provides personalised sweaters for us to wear while we scan the tickets at the events.

“Dankzij The Distillery kan je tickets op de meest simpele manier aankopen en gebruiken. Zelfs luie mensen, die af en toe eens iets vergeten, kunnen altijd naar binnen.”
SIMON DE COCK (FREAQUENCY)
“Je kent het allemaal wel; je wil naar een feestje, fuif of bal, maar vindt geen dealer meer in de buurt. Geen nood! Koop je kaarten vanaf nu gewoon bij The Distillery. Kei-gemakkelijk!”
WOUT DE SMET (EVENTORGANIZER BLEND 2017)
“Voor de editie BLEND 2017 zijn wij na lang twijfelen volledig overgeschakeld op online ticketing. Dit bleek een juiste keuze te zijn. De samenwerking met TDS was erg aangenaam. Op vlak van verkoop konden wij als organisatie bijna alles uit handen geven. Voor een beginnende onderneming was dit een erg constructieve en professionele coöperatie. De persoonlijke aanpak en service kan je niet bij andere ticketproviders vinden.”
JORIS DE KEULENAER (EVENTORGANIZER GALABAL VTK 2017)
“The Distillery knows what teamwork is, great communication and 100% dedication!”
