The Job

The main objective of the event was to build pipeline, deliver thought leadership and communicate best practices developed by Informatica and some of its valued partners. The event brief was to:

– Focus on sharing knowledge
– Provide easy ways to engage and network with others
– Find a fun and disruptive venue
– Provide high-quality catering, AV and facilities
– Plan the event from A-Z
– Including ‘WoW factor’ in all components of the event
– Help finding a highly energized, entertaining closing keynote linked to the topic of the day
– Ensure the smooth running of the event onsite

What we did

To provide the fun and disruption that Informatica were looking for we identified Studio Aalsmeer as the perfect venue for the event. Formerly a flower auction house, Studio Aalsmeer became a Dutch national monument when famous producer and co-founder of TV Production company Endemol ,Joop van den Ende, converted the site into TV studios.

It’s a venue with a lot of charm and surprises with different theatre styled rooms. The setup of the venue provided a great networking area with some exhibition space in the ‘Big Apple’ where the guests could also enjoy their lunch. We opened the event with a fun-filled survey that broke the ice and gave everyone the opportunity to get to know each other and to start the day fueled up with delicious pastries and hot coffee. Then delegates choose which session to attend during two break-out rounds each with a choice of three different sessions. Eventually, the day closed with an entertaining and highly energized speaker. As a result of this, attendees really had something to discuss during the drinks.

"DDG did a great job in coordinating a high-quality event together with us that inspired our customers, prospects & partners on the way data can power their business. It’s a pleasure of working with the professional crew of DDG. They’re taking care about the interaction with 3rd parties, all details, deadlines & many other things. This makes our lives easier and this allows us to focus on content & other marketing initiatives."
