We were at the Rotterdam Partners Red Carpet Dinner. It was our second year to attend the event. The Red Carpet Dinner is a prestigious yearly event of the city of Rotterdam, organised by Rotterdam Partners, welcoming newly arrived international companies to the city and introducing them to relevant business networks. It is kinda a debutante ceremony if you will.
The event provides unique opportunities to meet large national and international enterprises, innovative SME’s, (foreign) startups, ambassadors, (honorary) consuls, aldermen of local authorities and new international arrivals.
Of course, it is not an event if Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb didn’t give a motivational speech. We had a blast, met interesting forward-thinking people and that wasn’t the hight light of the day, they served Cricket burgers and the weird part is, it tasted GOOD.
We would like to thank Rotterdam Partners for inviting us and making me feel like home in this diverse city. We are fascinated by the amount of work and effort Rotterdam Partners do to make each event better than the last. So hats off to them!
