DNA Congress: Two Worlds In One City

The Case

Our client, the Dutch National Association, requested our support for their 2nd annual DNA congress. DNA brought their most important event of the year to The Hague because they wanted to offer delegates two worlds in one city- a knowledge sharing congress with a little rest and relaxation. From venue, to party planning and hotel support-  we played a role every step of the way to fulfil the success of DNA’s annual congress. 

Name of organisation: Dutch National Association
Name of event: 2nd Annual DNA Congress
Date of the event: 15 - 16 June 2017

The Hague Convention Bureau treats you like a true partner. THCB really understood what we wanted to achieve. They helped us with the content of our event and to find the right venue that matched our vision.

The Venue

It was important for DNA to offer event participants a distinct venue for this year’s annual congress. They decided on The Fokker Terminal because of the industrial and open layout of the venue that could be designed to their needs.

The City

Every event organiser chooses The Hague for a different reason. DNA appreciated the diversity of The Hague as an event destination: the delegates could enjoy the dynamic city vibes, and enjoy the opportunity to escape easily to Scheveningen beach for some relaxation. 

The Support

It was important for us to support our client throughout the entire process. We assisted DNA with finding the right venue, planning their evening social event and selecting the right hotel for delegates. We worked with the hotel to lock down the amount of rooms needed for the event and at a fixed rate in a timely manner.
