Late November, Haarlem Convention Bureau attended the second ‘Tafel van Nederland’. During this event, the role of Convention Bureaus for bookers and event organisers like you were discussed. As was Holland’s domestic and international status as a congress country. These are the results.
Compared to other bureaus, Haarlem Convention Bureau is a fairly new organisation. That hasn’t stopped Haarlem Convention Bureau from managing to attract no less than 34 partners. Resulting in a diverse range of associated hotels, meeting locations and social activities. Beside its rich cultural heritage and the broad offering of shops, cafes and restaurants Haarlem is known for, this emphasises the town’s excellent business opportunities. Take into account the large number of hotel initiatives of the past years, and it’s evident that Haarlem is perfectly capable of easing Amsterdam’s crowded business market.

Holland’s potential as a congress country
The ‘Tafel van Nederland’ displayed exciting results for The Netherlands as a congress country. We’re doing very well! There’s no social unrest and travelling distances between regions and cities are short. Especially for foreign perceptions. Foreign visitors may even feel Holland is like one big, extended city. Making the ‘Holland City’ moniker often attributed to our country especially fitting. A reputation which is further strengthened by the excellent cooperation between Convention Bureaus across the country.
