How do you celebrate your birthday in an appropriate and impressive way for board members and relations? For ARAG Netherlands, XSAGA organized an exclusive conference of international allure in honor of its 60th birthday, in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Led by presenter Rick Nieman, the guests looked ahead based on the theme 'Making a difference'.

Making a difference

What is coming at us and how do we ensure that justice remains accessible to everyone?

The future literally flew over the guests during the spectacular opening by Another Kind of Blue with their unique drone dance act. In addition, there were impressive speakers. Such as Princess Laurentien, who emphasized the importance of an inclusive society. But also British bestselling author Richard Susskind and international human rights lawyer Nani Jansen Reventlow, who gave a fiery speech about the future of the law.

The last of the substantive program was former Commander of the Armed Forces Peter van Uhm about what price you sometimes have to pay to make a difference. Finally, the guests were treated to an impressive unveiling of the subsequent drinks and walking dinner through a smoke-enveloped mystery box that went up into the air to loud applause.
