Safe 1.5m events? With the temporary event concept Cruise in Control you don't have to think about anything anymore
29 July 2020

7 partners from the event industry are joining forces for affordable events in 2020. As happy as everyone is that events are allowed again, realistically live events have become almost unaffordable. The 1.5-meter rule means that for an event of 150 people you need a gigantic location, where you could previously accommodate 1200 people. That is why 7 prominent event companies have developed a plug & play, all-in-one concept for the lowest possible price in Passenger Terminal Amsterdam . A temporary concept for the return of events One of the initiators of the 'Cruise in Control' concept and director of International Orange Eva Annokkee explains: “We are eagerly looking forward to the return of live events. Meeting each other again and looking in the eye. And of course immerse ourselves in the way in which this can be done as pleasantly as possible in the 'new normal'. We note that the 1.5m measures often make it seem complicated and more expensive to organize events. That is why we got together with our loyal partners and developed this concept. ” Plug & play, but still 'tailor-made'. As mentioned, you are looking for a much larger location for your event. This also means more technology and decoration. If you spread these amounts over the much smaller numbers of visitors, events can actually no longer be paid. By developing a plug & play (ready-to-use) concept that lays a solid foundation for every event, you save a lot of time and costs related to construction and dismantling. Annokkee explains: “All partners have integrated the highest quality technology, catering, decoration and on-site registration into a ready-made concept. This feels a bit strange to us, because we normally tailor everything. But because we find it important in these times to help event organizers as much as possible, these partners are happy to make their expertise and equipment available (temporarily) for a competitive price. To stimulate business events to get going again. In a safe and efficient way. Unique opportunity The fact that Passenger Terminal Amsterdam available for events this summer is quite unique. Director Passenger Terminal Amsterdam Dick de Graaff explains: “PTA is a multifunctional terminal that we use for both the handling of sea cruise ships and a location for events. Normally we would now have been in the middle of the high season and we welcomed sea cruise ships at our quay every day, with occasionally room for an event ”. De Graaff: “This exceptional situation also requires an exceptional approach. Normally, the terminal is converted from event location to cruise terminal and vice versa almost every week. To maintain this flexibility, we have few things in house. Now that this conversion is not necessary, we can, in collaboration with the partners of Cruise in Control, offer a wonderful plug & play concept for a razor-sharp price ”. Demonstrate what is possible Registration and communication play a major role in allowing relations to participate safely. Rutger Bremer, founder of Momice explains how they guarantee safety for Cruise in Control: “It is very important to the industry that we show how we can safely organize 1.5m events. That is why we have great solutions to prevent long queues and contact: We divide the arrival into several time slots so that not everyone enters at the same time. ” Checking in is normally a process with many actions by the host (ess). That is different now. Bremer: “Checking in with a badge is completely contactless. Participants scan their e-ticket on an iPad and a label is automatically printed that they can stick on their badge themselves. The maximum number of participants on location and during break-outs is also automatically managed by the software during the event. ” These are the partners Passenger Terminal Amsterdam | Event location International Orange | Coordination & event production Momice | On-site registration Hot Pepper | Catering Booz event design | Interior & event design Solid Rental | Audiovisual technology & show direction HWM | Audiovisual technology & show direction

Thanks, en je hebt gelijk. De budgetten per persoon staan enorm onder druk. Ik vraag me af of het bestuur van bedrijven doorheeft dat we niet meer hetzelfde kunnen bereiken met de budgetten voor maart. Ik ben bang dat event professionals van een koude kermis thuis komen. Maar door zo meer samen te werken kunnen we de prijs enigszins laag houden en weer...
