The Transport & Support Service, DV&O in Dutch, has been around for 20 years now, an occasion that was celebrated on a grand scale at DeFabrique. The Kik performed on stage, along with many other artists, and ten themed kitchens were set up to serve delicious dishes to the employees and their partners. A pop-up museum about the Service’s past and a full lasergame arena were set up to finish things of, turning this anniversary into a very special memory for many attendees.
800 guests were welcomed to the ‘Kalvermelkfabriek‘ by a musical act, the ‘Roept u Maar’ (‘Requests please’) trio, where ten themed kitchens had been set up to serve many different tasty dishes to the crowd. One chef in an old sailboat delighted with his authentic paella, wheras Marilyn Monroe was present in the Meatlove kitchen to surprise the real carnivores among us with a hamburger masquerading as a sausage roll. The DV&O security guards had never seen anything like it!
The venue looked really cosy, and the warehouses had a great feel about them. The traditional Dutch bar and Italian kitchen in particular were a big hit. The food was great, service was very smooth, and the decorations by JanVerhuur were beautiful. The artist, Bennie Solo, fit the overall traditional Dutch concept very well. Together, we were able to provide our employees with a great memory of DV&O’s twentieth anniversary.
A party is nothing without some good music, which is why musical entertainment was provided in the various warehouses by the likes of The Kik, een Brassband, Anne Jess, Bennie Solo, and the DV&O’s very own Got Talent Band. The band members were very impressed with the light show that was put on and rocked the crowd with songs written especially for this occasion.
