About Konligo

Konligo – a young VUB spin-off located in Brussels – makes it possible for creative event managers to stand out during events, for themselves and their clients, with creative and adaptable structures. The stands and tents bring an impressive immersive feeling and are installed very fast (hours instead of days). Our dream is a zero-waste event sector that does more with less: more resource efficiency, responsible use and material reuse and less impact on the environment. With our innovative transformable structures, we want to fascinate and inspire you. To achieve this, we combine creative engineering with the principles of sustainable development. We push structures to another level whilst continuing to strive for resource efficiency, and acting responsibly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-LJI0AKVos&feature=emb_title
