The commencement ceremony of “Han Academic Year 2016” took place on IndustriePark Kleefse Waard. One of the old factory halls was transformed by Nightlife Productions into a true event venue. In addition to the ceremony in one of the factory halls, there was also a HAN Parade in the park. During the HAN parade, visitors enjoyed performances, lectures, stand-up comedy, food trucks, and a news café.

HAN, IPKW and Nightlife Productions

Transforming a factory hall into an event venue requires some thought and effort. Together with client HAN, IPKW and Nightlife created a beautiful result. Nightlife Productions was the advisory as well as executive party in this project.


To achieve this result, the “studio effect” were central. By using mobile stands and a circular structure above the stage you directly though the desired effect. 24 Martin moving heads combined with the stadium lighting also puts an extra emphasis on the “studio effect”. To still emphasize the old factory, we have highlighted the walls and roof with some of our new CLF Ares wash fixtures.
