Ignace Bultijnck* – A commercial developer with a cultural feeling

Ignace Bultijnck

“Uplace is an absolutely unique project. Starting from the innovative entrepreneurial spirit of the Uplace team, a degenerating and polluted ground near the Brussels ring road and the airport of Zaventem will be transformed into a unique place where shopping, work and relaxation are combined in an innovative way to an unprecedented experience destination. With my theatre background, I am also very delighted that northern Brussels will get a culture temple of 3000 seats. ”


After studying commercial engineering and sound engineering, Ignace began his career in the theatres of Bozar and became quickly responsible for establishing some 30 exhibitions per year and technically less obvious hall productions. Via an intermediate step as a general contractor at ABC-Planid, he became responsible for the maintenance of existing stores and all the construction projects of construction of Inditex in the Benelux. Almost four years later, he took under his wing all the expansion projects of the Group Inditex (Zara, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Oysho, Zara Home & Stradivarius). Today, Ignace uses his interest in the world of construction and retail for the commercialization of the Uplace project. In the meantime, he got his MBA from the Vlerick Leuven.
