Sandbox sessions

VRT Sandbox is looking forward to welcome you to the second edition of the VRT Sandbox Sessions. Discover the latest innovations that startups realized in collaboration with VRT brands such as MNM, Canvas and Ketnet. Look into the (international) opportunities, ideas and technologies that VRT Sandbox can provide for your challenges, and meet the startups that have been making a difference onsite VRT.

Dedicated stages

Media Fast Forward invites its partners to cocurate a session about a topic of their expertise, a challenge that they’re facing, or an opportunity for future media.

Closing talkshow

During a closing talkshow, we gather different experts in the grand Henry Le Boeuf, one of Belgium’s most beautiful concert halls. Here, we build one story with the different topics discussed during the day. What is the impact of media and technology on our culture and society? How do tackle these new challenges? Which steps do we take together in the future?


As every year, the Exhibition is the beating heart of Media Fast Forward. This year quite literally, as it is situated in the beautiful exhibition hall of Bozar, named after Victor Horta. A unique opportunity to present your company or innovation on this impressive location. The Exhibition consists of the Marketplace and R&D zone.


Find out about the latest innovations on the market. Connect with the startup scene and discover new opportunities for projects or collaborations. The Exhibition is the meeting point of Media Fast Forward.


Discover the projects that research and develop the media technology of tomorrow. This includes more immersive viewing experiences, personalised radio, and innovative news and programme formats engaging communities everywhere and at all times, customised to the right platform and user context. These innovation projects examine the evolutions of media and our challenges.
