The MEETINGS® Awards are handed out during the MBE, an annual event for professionals working in the Dutch MICE industry.
Winning the award is a vote of confidence by the Dutch MICE industry as Joan Dubbelaar, Event Manager at the Louwman Museum, points out. “We are delighted to receive this award, especially as we were nominated by our business relations and clients. The award is an important expression of appreciation for the Louwman Museum as an event venue.”
The Louwman Museum is the world's oldest private car collection and contains over 230 antique and classic cars. The museum also acts as a venue for business events and was initially founded by P.W. Louwman who established an import dealership for Dodge and Chrysler automobiles.
Event Manager of the Louwman Museum Odette Bos commented, “In 2017 we hosted nearly 300 business meetings, which means that more and more visitors got to admire our wonderful collection of antique motor cars. This showcases the importance of business events for our museum.”
The Hague has a rich history and cultural flair with many art galleries, antique markets and museums located in the city. Next to the Louwman Museum many other museums can be used as event location such as Mauritshuis, Gemeentemuseum and Escher in Het Paleis.
