Amsterdam events specialist Eventfabriek became an ACP member in January this year. The company organises the thematic design and musical programming for a wide variety of events. This new partnership with ACP offers cruise companies interesting, reliable and cost-effective onboard entertainment options.
The Eventfabriek develops entertainment programmes aligned to the wishes of river and sea cruise companies and their passengers. It has some 25 years of experience and expertise in the design and programming of events organised by third parties. The performers in the company’s portfolio know what is expected of them in all situations and enjoy making contact with their audience during their shows. This attitude enables organisers to select the right scale and type of entertainment for cruise vessels. The Eventfabriek team is also fully aware of the more limited setups available compared to on-land entertainment and the different requirements in terms of performers and audio-visual equipment.
The company was started by two musicians, Koen Brouwer and Quinten Huigen. Their goal is to provide clients with customised and fully developed programmes, featuring the right type of music for each audience and location. Events can also be held on shore instead of onboard. “The great thing about the Netherlands is that it never takes more than two hours to travel to any attractive location,” says Koen Brouwer. “This offers excellent opportunities to treat passengers to something truly special while keeping costs low.”
Eventfabriek is also active outside of the Netherlands. Recently, for instance, it organised concerts in London and it can also facilitate acts that travel with cruises between destinations. Amsterdam Cruise Port sees Eventfabriek as a valuable addition to the group of cruise-related companies it represents. In turn, the ACP membership offers Eventfabriek access to a growing sector with very specific entertainment needs.
