We gave our Concepting advice based on our experience on what to expect and to do, from Sales to Operation, from planning ahead and finding the right partners, to hands-on later… We also had a great brainstorm session with the management of all different disciplines & specialities within the Valamar Corporation, but also involved the operation staff.

Consultant and one of the initiators
The iconic Afsluitdijk (one of the longest dams in the world, 32,8k) would be closed for a few thousand runners, who would have run towards sunrise at the break of dawn of September 4th, 2016.
The Afsluitdijk Open was a bucket-list event, not to be missed for any experienced runner… too bad that due to terrible weather conditions the Afsluitdijk Open was postponed and later on canceled.
