How to get to FACTS

1. Public transport

Tram 1 will take you from train station Ghent Sint-Pieters right to the FACTS doorstep at Flanders Expo and back again!
Buses 76, 77 and 78 will also take you to the venue without a scratch.
A tram or bus ride is not included in a FACTS entry ticket.

2. By car

You can leave your TIE Fighter, TARDIS or other vehicle on our parking lot. Flanders Expo provides its own parking facilities, which can be accessed directly via Exit 14 of the E40 motorway (Brussels – Ostend). A parking day ticket costs 10€. These prices are not the choice of FACTS. The parking lots are owned by the City of Ghent.

Coming to FACTS by public transport? Then you can always consider a train/tram/FACTS ticket combo!

This ticket type will be available one month before FACTS, through the website of NMBS.


The Cosplay ticket grants you access to FACTS, but also gives you discount for coming to the convention in cosplay. In other words, the only requirement for this ticket is that you come to the show in a costume!

Can’t complete your cosplay in time for FACTS? Don’t worry, you can exchange your cosplay ticket for a Standard ticket at the entrance. You simply pay the difference in price at the cash register.


This ticket simply gives you access to FACTS. Nothing more, but certainly nothing less.

Enjoy all activities and shows in our comic con!


Enter FACTS at 9 am instead of 10 am. 

This is how you get to score the unique items in our huge geek market and perhaps even some limited Artist Alley drawings.

You can also enjoy the activities first and walk around FACTS with almost no other fellow fans. A real experience!

The VIP pack contains the following extras:

  • Access to FACTS from 9 am instead of 10 am. The scanning starts a little earlier, to give everyone a chance to enter at the exact time.

  • VIP parking spot for the chosen day(s), near the VIP Entrance. Coming to FACTS in style!
  • Exclusive FACTS VIP badge and lanyard. Please, no VIP gang signs… No throw it up, we’re kidding.
  • Reserved front row seats for actor panels. You’ll be so close that you can count the nose hairs of the actors. But please don’t.

  • EXCLUSIVE TO A VIP WEEKEND TICKET: a VIP goodiebag with all sorts of cool stuff.

Since 1993, the FACTS organisers have been working their hardest to do right by the thousands of fans that come together in Ghent. We always aim to create a safe space for all our fans to gather, be themselves and make unforgettable memories with like-minded people and guests from all over the world.

With the well-being, health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, crew and partners as our main priority, FACTS has been closely following and monitoring the evolution of the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, the Corona pandemic, during the last days.

Since the situation in Belgium is becoming more critical every day and since the US government announced travel restrictions to Europe, FACTS has decided to cancel the FACTS Spring 2020 edition due to force majeure.

After considering all possible safety measures, we have ultimately decided to follow the guidance of the local health organisations and governments indicating that mass events should be cancelled.

As our main goal is to offer our amazing community the unique experience they deserve and to guarantee their safety, we simply were left with no other option.

It pains us to take this decision, but we are already looking forward to the next gathering with all our fans, exhibitors and guests on 24 & 25 October in Flanders Expo Ghent. In the meantime, we have worked very hard to guarantee an even more impressive line-up of stars and we are excited to announce that Ian Somerhalder, Rebecca Mader & Troy Baker have already confirmed that they will be present to meet all their fans in Belgium on 24 & 25 October. More guests and surprises will be announced in the coming months.

All our visitors, exhibitors and partners will be contacted personally by e-mail very soon, with more information regarding the next steps. All entry tickets will remain valid for FACTS in October, but visitors will get the choice: keep the ticket(s) for October or ask for a refund. More detailed info on that will follow soon.

We appreciate the support we have received in the past week. The feedback was invaluable in helping us determine this decision.

Kind regards,

The FACTS team
