Professional Conference Organiser in Rotterdam

VKOZ is an event agency from Rotterdam with a keen eye for details. We organise events for corporations and associations. We are specialised in (international) conferences and as a Professional Conference Organiser, VKOZ is thé local partner in Rotterdam for foreign companies.
An event is a powerful instrument to communicate your message. But setting up a successful event also requires a lot of time, knowledge and creativity. An international event planner faces extra challenges when organising events abroad. Because of the distance, communication is always a big challenge. But also the cultural differences and missing local knowledge makes it harder to organise a quality event.
With a local Professionals Conference Organiser the event planner saves a lot of time and money. A PCO keeps the overview, switches quickly with all the different local suppliers and speaks the same language. This way the PCO unburdens the event planner, creates trust and limits the risks.

Rotterdam is a city with a distinct character, energetic and never the same. Rotterdam and Rotterdammers do not shy away from the experiment, but rather look for it. Just as the Nieuwe Maas is a strong symbol for constant movement. A city where the Make It Happen mentality is tangible and visible. With parties that choose Rotterdam and give their own interpretation to the Rotterdam mentality and “can do” spirit. Whether you are a resident, visitor or entrepreneur: Rotterdam. Make It Happen.
As an event and conference city, Rotterdam has an enormous diversity of locations. Perhaps most striking: the large number of unconventional locations.

With art in and around the café and a spacious (roof) terrace, the Kunsthal café has its own unique atmosphere. Of course you can combine the event with a visit to the exhibitions.

secret of VKOZ

Discover the secret of VKOZ

Discover the secret of VKOZ

VKOZ is an event agency from Rotterdam. We are experienced in organising business events and all communication around it. You can choose a total approach or the services based on your needs. By communicating with our customers in a transparent manner, we create trust. We pay a lot of attention to the details. Everyone can expect that the main lines of the event are good, but it is the small things that make the wow.

Timeline VKOZ in Rotterdam

The timeline
VKOZ was founded in 2010 by Marjolein van Rosmalen. After a career of 15 years in the business travel and events industry, it was time for a new challenge. The name VKOZ stood for: Female View on Business. Female organisational advice for male entrepreneurs. VKOZ started as a management and organisation consultancy. In the years that followed VKOZ also received more and more marketing and communication projects.
Two years later, requests were added for organising sports, cultural and public events. In these years Marjolein learned a lot about other facets of the event industry such as production, permits, safety and sponsorship.
After five years, Marjolein worked on so many different projects that it was time to move in one direction. Marjolein knew deep down that organising business events gave her the most energy. That is why a new website was launched in 2017 with the new logo: VKOZ events & communication. Due to the many recurring clients, VKOZ increasingly evolved into a company with a nice office and co-workers and  Marjolein also offered internships to share her knowledge and passion. Now, in 2020, VKOZ’s expertise is organising business events and also helps as a Professional Conference Organiser foreign organisations with organising their events in Rotterdam. Read more about VKOZ as PCO in Rotterdam here.
process of VKOZThe approach
Due to Marjolein’s 15 years of work experience at large international organisations, VKOZ has a professional working method. We think along with the strategy and goals of the event. An event is an investment and we therefore always try to think about what the event will ultimately yield. We would like to show our added value. A personal goal is to earn ourselves back.
Everyone can expect that the great lines of an event are good,
but it’s the little things that make the wow.
Due to the small, close-knit team, VKOZ has a lot of flexibility. We work transparently. With us you can choose a total approach or the services based on your needs: concept development, project management, communication and / or production. We make a clear project plan and share this with the client during the process, which gives confidence. This allows the client to see exactly what is being done and in which steps. An event consists of many different parts. By breaking it into steps, we provide the overview. We start with the basics. In the end, we pay a lot of attention to the details.
partners VKOZOur partners
Every client has a different organisational culture. We have built up a wide network over the years. We can choose exactly those partners that best suits the client. If you do business with VKOZ, you use a very large  network with the same down to earth Rotterdam mentality. We are very involved ourselves, so we expect this also from our partners: reliable, hard workers who work with their own pride and passion for their work.
Authenticity is one of the first lessons Marjolein learned as an entrepreneur. It is best to be yourself, so you automatically attract customers, co-workers and partners who match your standards and values. We see the event itself as the icing on the cake. It is very important to us to invest a lot of time in the different relationships. We are in constant contact with the people. The result is that everybody is  happy and full of passion on the day of the event. For an unforgettable event.
