Amsterdam – September 19, 2019. After years of successful cooperation, Amsterdam Conference Centre Beurs van Berlage and Ovation Holland DMC have intensified their collaboration by formalising a partnership. The Beurs van Berlage and Ovation Holland DMC, the DMC brand of MCI, will continue to invest in expanding the services for its customers in the upcoming years, not only on-site, but off-site as well. These services will be offered under the new name “Beurs van Berlage DMC services, powered by Ovation Holland".
The building – designed by H.P. Berlage – was opened as a stock exchange and trade center of the Netherlands in 1903. It has a long history of trade, craftsmanship and mercantilism. In recent years, the monument has developed into a unique, inspiring, first-class conference location. The mission of the Amsterdam Conference Centre is to offer all visitors a unique, high-level experience and to exceed the expectations of its customers and guests. Above all, the Beurs van Berlage wants to think in terms of solutions in order to make the events and the experience around them unforgettable.
The partnership with Ovation Holland DMC ensures that all future meetings held in the Beurs van Berlage and are in need of a DMC, are offered a high-standard off-site event service. As a Destination Management Company, Ovation Holland DMC is the expert of Amsterdam and its surrounding area. With this expertise, Ovation Holland DMC will complement Beurs van Berlage’s proposition, which will ultimately make the Amsterdam Conference Centre known as the full-service venue in the heart of Amsterdam.
“It is important for us that we can offer our customers the widest possible range of services," said Beurs van Berlage's Managing Director Marcel Schonenberg, “with this collaboration we can continue to focus on what we are good at – providing a 5-star service during the on-site event – and we can leave all off-site services of an event to the experts in that field. ”
To reinforce the new cooperation and to realise the best possible communication, Ovation Holland DMC will also be physically present in the Beurs van Berlage. “By being close to our colleagues at the Beurs, we can make sure that our event plans are aligned. This means that we can improve the customer support," says Peter-Willem Burgmans, Managing Director of Ovation Holland DMC / MCI The Netherlands. “Through this collaboration, we are convinced that the Beurs van Berlage can offer its national and international customers the very best service."
