Beurs van Berlage organisation
Since 2008, the Beurs van Berlage has been a limited partnership with four equal shareholders, namely the Municipality of Amsterdam, De Key, Amvest and BPD Nederland BV. From that date, the building as a whole has known one organisation and clearly defined basic principles:
- Open and accessible;
- Preservation and expansion of social function;
- A competitive return;
- Preservation of the monument for future generations.
As a public building we have some house rules. We kindly ask our visitors to honour them so that we can maintain a respectful relationship.
In order to achieve the aforementioned key values, the Beurs van Berlage offers a platform for meetings. The following vision was formulated to realise this: “Personal encounters have become even more valuable in an increasingly faster paced “digital” world, especially when they occur in a special place, in a special environment.”
The Beurs van Berlage distinguishes itself thanks to:
- The authentic and unique stories;
- Its high level of hospitality, service and quality to clients and guests;
- The various elements that enhance each other;
- By “opening” the building and offering its visitors and users a unique experience;
- A healthy return is achieved and the monument will be preserved for future generations.
This results in the following mission: “To be the best conference and event centre at 5-star level. Each of our staff is personally ready to make any enounter in the Beurs van Berlage an unforgettable experience!”
The Beurs van Berlage has various departments, managed by the departmental managers who together form the management team:
- Managing Director: Marcel C.B. Schonenberg
- Commercial Director: Michiel Lindenbergh
- Operations Director: Lydia Baloe
- Food & Beverage Director: Paul de Callafon
- Financial Director: Hakima Nouzi
The Beurs van Berlage is a central meeting place in Amsterdam city centre, in a nationally listed building. Due to its function, the activities that take place here are different every day and there are many users and stakeholders. In our business operations, we want to take our stakeholders into account to the greatest possible extent and we undertake all our activities in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.
People, Planet, Profit
By being aware of the fact that the Beurs van Berlage is an exceptional building and that this comes with its own restrictions, we pursue a sustainability policy that takes the three Ps (People, Planet, Profit) as a sustainable basic principle to the greatest possible extent. The full sustainability mission and vision can be found in the attached PDF.
