Van der Linde Food - Catering - Events

Van Der Linde Food - Catering - Events will provide hospitality and event management, facility management and the exploitation of the cafe and souvenir shop. Founded in 1962 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the company has an extensive experience in large-scale international events in the fields of top sports, leisure, business and politics. Van der Linde is specialized in party catering, food productions and the creation of guest experiences. The company works as much as possible with 100% organic, sustainably produced and fair trade products.

In the Netherlands pavilion cafe and shop they will serve food and beverages in the theme ‘Common Ground’, like Dutch stroopwafels with Japanese fruit dips and souvenirs related to our common history with Von Siebold and the need for a sustainable society for future generations, with circular gifts.  The motto of Van der Linde is: Create Together.


For this project, Van der Linde is entering into intensive cooperation with a local Japanese partner. For this we have contracted a renowned organizing agency from Tokyo. JEFF Corporation Co., Ltd. was founded in 1983 and has been involved in the planning and execution of many association meetings and academic seminars for companies.

JEFF has a track record of large-scale international events including the sepsis seminar of the Japan Society of Intensive Care Medicine and the Japan Society of Emergency Medicine, For the past 10 years, they have managed the annual meetings of the Japanese Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, which have been heavily attended by more than 10,000 participants each year. In doing so, they have been responsible for all on-site facility matters such as cleaning, security, catering, speaker program, audiovisual resources, publications, printing, website, newsletters, photo and video recordings and book publishing. Therefor they will be the all-round partner for welcoming visitors and event to the Netherlands pavilion.
