Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden best meeting and event location of the Netherlands in the category XL

The National Meeting Awards were presented for the 3rd time on Monday 12 March; the independent awards for the best meeting and event locations in the Netherlands, which excel in quality, guest experience and entrepreneurship.

Personal approach and thinking out of the box

The announcement of the winner in the category XL remained exciting until the end. In addition to Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden, Bilderberg Kasteel Vaalsbroek and Muntgebouw Utrecht were also nominated in this category. After an objective quality control and a visit by an independent professional jury, the personal approach of Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden in combination with the ‘out of the box thinking’, was decisive. '‘The team-oriented approach is amazingly strong. The appearance is very creative: the home feeling is a super move! They also clearly succeeded in surprising us with the product and their personal approach. The way in which this location deals with technology and Wi-Fi in the rooms is something we would like to see everywhere’’. Thus the jury of the National Meeting Award.

Multifunctional meeting & event center

Ab de Bruijn, director Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden: ‘’We are very proud of this wonderful Award. Two years ago our hotel was completely renewed and since then we have a modern congress center with no less than 16 multifunctional rooms.
