Our history

Yesplan came about through a collaboration between the arts center Vooruit and 3 Professors from the University of Brussels computing department. The development of the system was in direct response to the Vooruit having identified a need for a system that would centralize and simplify all communications and workflows around the planning and production of cultural and commercial events. 

Yesplan was designed so that it could be used by any cultural organization and not just the Vooruit so that when other organizations were interested in using it, they were able to spin it off in a separate company from the arts center. Today more then 300 venues across Western-Europe and the UK are using Yesplan as their central event management system. 

Yesplan employs a total of 25 staff, with offices in Ghent, London, Den Hague and Oslo. Mostly working remotely and covering 14 countries

The approach to developing Yesplan right from the start was for planners and computer experts to come together to make sure that the need was being fulfilled with the best possible state-of-the-art solution with a highly intuitive user interface.
