Organize a conference or business event

Conventions & Events

The real work only starts after you have won the bid or the pitch. Organizing the International conference or business event takes up a lot of time and coordination with various parties in the city. It entails a fair amount of logistical and financial challenges. The conference or event locations need to be booked, hotel rooms need to be block booked and transportation will need to be arranged. In the case of a conference, a lot of time and attention must be dedicated to finding sponsors and promoters to attract a sufficient number of participants. The close cooperation between the partners in the city makes it possible to plan everything correctly from a distance and to retain enough influence on proceedings. In the run-up to the international conference or business event, we can support you with advice and expertise in various areas. We would like to think along with you to find a good solution if you find yourself facing logistical challenges or other bottlenecks. We could get you in touch with a PCO that takes over the actual organization of the conference or event from you. Moreover, we offer promotional tools about Rotterdam that you could use during the international conference or business event.
