Beurs van Berlage

The Beurs van Berlage is a hotspot that cannot be missed during your visit to Amsterdam. It is the vibrant meeting point in the heart of the city. One thing is certain, there is always something to do in the unique historical building! Have a bite to eat in one of our restaurants, visit the Tony's Chocolonely shop for the tastiest chocolate, order the most delicious fish dishes in The Seafood Bar, rent a bicycle or use one of the lockers in the Bike Rental and discover the secrets of Sherlocked. Check out events and the expositions in our calendar.

As Managing Director I am chairman of the management team and responsible for our operation and management of our special National Monument.

My passion is hospitality and I am proud that we, together with all our colleagues, strive again and again - with success - to offer our customers and guests an unforgettable experience and to exceed expectations. Whether it's about a large international conference, a visit to an exhibition or a dinner in our Bistro or on the terrace.

I started working at the Beurs in 2009, with the assignment to find a good destination for the former stock exchange, to allow de Beurs van Berlage to play a role again in its environment and to ensure a healthy return. We succeeded, although of course we are never done with this ...

Before the Beurs, my career, after my education at the Hotelschool The Hague, took place in the world of leisure as director of various amusement parks in the Netherlands and Belgium. The fear of a few people about a roller coaster ride through our Grote Zaal has, of course, proved to be unfounded. But the profession as director of the Beurs does not differ substantially from that of an amusement park; we are a hospitality company that continues to develop and where a park often uses beautiful stories and themed themes we have received those stories and ambiance from H.P. Berlage.

I have various other positions including: Chairman BIZ Damrak Beursplein, Chairman Paleiskwartier, Daily board member Association Amsterdam City, Member advisory committee recreation De Hoge Veluwe national park.
