Evelien van Kessel

After studying Facility Management at the Hague University of Applied Sciences, I started my career at the commercial department of Royal Theater Carré. I joined the Beurs van Berlage in February 2014 where I started as an Account Manager. Since August 2018 I have started to fulfill my current role as Director of Sales. Together with my colleagues from the Sales and Conference Services team I focus on contracting (international) congresses and events, based on a full service concept. Working in a commercial role within a historic building is a great combination that suits me well. The history of the building, my passion for hospitality and the international working environment give me great satisfaction in my daily work. It makes me proud to be part of the Beurs van Berlage team.
