Break Out: Rotterdam’s Convention Hub: Innovations at events in times of Covid-19 by Rotterdam Partners Convention Bureau and Proxemy

June 18, 2020, 16:00 - 16:45

The international events industry is facing challenges it has never before experienced. We are witnessing the effect of the pandemic on the industry across all areas, from congresses being cancelled or going virtual, to future prospects toppled by the domino effect that follows…

But the pace at which the industry is innovating is remarkable. As we move closer to the proactive phase of recovery, sharing innovations will be crucial to a successful recovery with a more resilient industry as a result.

Rotterdam is a city of innovation & experimentation. A robust combination of academia & industry provides a rich eco-system for events. Catherine Kalamidas, account manager of Convention Bureau of Rotterdam Partners, will speak about the convention industry and has invited Proxemy’s Marcel Schouwenaar to speak about the Bubble Badge which aims to help events with social distancing in the age of COVID.

The session will zoom in on an example of one such innovation which can benefit congress & event organizers in the age of COVID and beyond: Bubble Badge, a technology which aims to help events with social distancing. Rotterdam is a high-value congress & event destination thanks to the city’s innovative character which translates to real solutions for our industry.

About Rotterdam and Rotterdam Partners’ Convention Bureau
Rotterdam is a young, dynamic metropolis, known internationally as the ‘gateway to Europe’. The Port of Rotterdam is the hub of Europe’s greatest maritime cluster and energy industry, and our knowledge cluster at Erasmus University and Erasmus Medical Center are at the cutting edge of life sciences & health. Thanks to our strategic position, we are literally connected with the rest of the world, just 26 minutes from a major international airport, and access by high-speed, often non-stop train from the UK,France, Belgium & Germany. As a city, we offer everything: a city centre where meeting venues, hotels, restaurants and attractions are within walking distance of each other.

As Rotterdam Partners Convention Bureau, we support you in organizing an international conference, exhibition, meeting or business event. We do so independently, professionally and free of charge. We know our city like nobody else does and we work together with more than 160 Rotterdam partners in the business travel and tourist industry.
