COMPLETELY ACCESSIBLE

Gent ICC puts the motto 'We Care' into practice. As a public building, the ICC ghent will offer complete accessibility for the disabled (recognised by VFG in 2006).

Gent ICC has special facilities for both wheelchair users and the aurally and visually impaired.

Gent ICC approaches total accessibility from two angles: the characteristics of the building and our attitude.
