Showcases overview

On Tuesday evening, October 13th, the Jubilee Award Ceremony of the Brain Foundation took place in the Beurs van Berlage. Because of corona, not in the physical presence of hundreds of guests, but online via a live stream in a unique and interactive setting in the Effectenbeurszaal of the Beurs van Berlage.

During the event, led by presenter Art Rooijakkers, 5 top researchers were honored and the award was awarded to Prof. dr. Iris Sommer, who is now able to conduct research on the relationship between the intestines and the brain, thus improving the lives of half a million Dutch people with a brain disorder.

We have chosen to hold this festive event in the Beurs van Berlage. Not only because of the fantastic appearance and accessibility of the location, but also because of the enormous hospitality we experienced from the very first contact.

In addition to this hospitality, we also experienced a large dose of flexibility during the course of the preparation process. The original plan for a “traditional” event changed into a digital concept within a few months. All thanks to the cooperation of the Beurs van Berlage and its “technical people". Despite the fact that our guests could not be present live, they still got the real Beurs feeling because of the beautiful decor in the unique ambiance of the Effectenbeurszaal.

From the very first moment that corona emerged, the safety of us and our guests was of main importance. During the preparations as well as on the evening itself, everything was done to ensure our safety by following all corona guidelines. I have experienced this as very pleasant.
