Buma Awards 2023
Songwriters. Lyricists and composers. We often don’t know them, but sing their songs effortlessly. Their work is moving, makes things negotiable, offers comfort and inspiration and makes crowds go crazy together. With the presentation of the Buma Awards, Buma Cultuur honors the songwriters.
Together with TINCAN we produced the festive award show in Royal Theater Tuschinski in Amsterdam. With more than 50 awards, a red carpet, a lot of press, wonderful words of thanks, a great show and lots of music.
Opening Academic Year and Dies Natalis
Erasmus University Rotterdam
‘Making Minds Matter’
This pay-off summarizes the ambitions of Erasmus University Rotterdam well.
Decisive scientific research and education in the service of society.
The opening of the academic year and the anniversary of the university are traditionally the
events to show what this ambition means and delivers in concrete terms.
With inspiring speakers from our own community or from the worldwide network of
partners. With attention and tribute to special people and projects and with
discussions about solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.
We are proud to be able to help the university with this special content
events. And we learn a lot from it!
Traveling with our network is the most sustainable way to move around the Rotterdam Region. That is the message RET would like to convey. But: One traveler is not the other. Everyone has their own reasons for choosing public transport.
That is why we came up with the Aardig Weg Challenge, a campaign in the form of competitions. Always with a different theme for a different target group. Do you opt for speed, fun or the best view? However you want to travel, the RET is there for you!
We invite everyone to participate with a press release, bus shelters, narrowcasting and expressions on social media. Each challenge is a small event that produces a lot of enthusiastic content. This way we are steadily building the image of the RET: sustainable connector of the Rotterdam Region. For everyone.
Robeco has been at the forefront of sustainable investing for more than 25 years. BEE Agency produced a video series to enable clients of Robeco to build a sustainable world whilst achieving better returns.
Together with LUSTR, we organized the National Circular Economy Conference on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
An inspiring day in theater De Spiegel in Zwolle with entrepreneurs, knowledge- and educational institutions, social organizations and governments to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
In March, international Ethereum community gathered in Amsterdam to continue building their network. Many thousands of young blockchain specialists visited the various events that were held in the city for 8 days. We were responsible for 8 locations, including the co-working space in the Beurs van Berlage. We developed the house style, kept in touch with 23 different organizing parties and arranged the layout and decoration (thank you Boozed!). Technology, catering, live stream, hundreds of bicycles and everything else that was needed.
We learned a lot from this sweet and special target group (stickers, swag and wifi; that’s what it’s all about).
TOPdesk’s international flagship customer event; SEE 2021. We produced the show this year on a large scale from Studio21 in Hilversum. With two hosts, great international speakers, demos and discussions with TOPdesk specialists, dancers and a great live band. In 4 hours we did what we promised: Decoding Customer Happiness.
Yes! We won a Golden Giraffe. An important Dutch event prize. We are very proud of it. We got it for the Eurekaweek, which we organized together with the students of the Erasmus University. And we got it thanks to Janna, Anne, Ramona, Niels, Fedde, Hans, Jan Gitsels and his team, Uitjes.nl and many others.
Study, if you have the talent for it. That is not always . Certainly not if studying is not the norm in your environment.
Many students of VWO 5 and 6 have no idea what their financial situation will look like when they start studying. Sometimes the expected high costs are an obstacle to choosing a study.
That is why we have developed the online tool ‘What does studying cost’ together with Stichting de Verre Bergen and Erasmus University Rotterdam.
You choose a guide that suits you and based on examples and questions, make choices that ultimately provide a clear overview of your expenses and income.
This provides insight and offers guidance for, for example, a good conversation with your parents.
The tool can be used both in class and individually and is constantly adapted to the latest regulations and price levels.
The Jostiband is one of the largest orchestras for people with intellectual disabilities in the world. The Jostibands way of making music works with colours. After 50 years, we made this way accessible to everyone. On the new online platform you will find instructional videos, play-along videos and much more. We launched the new platform at a press conference in pop venue Paradiso. And the Netherlands has known it. We received attention in all national TV newsshows, radio programs, talk shows, websites and newspapers.
See it all on Jostiband.nl!
“We will sing to the Nazis what we cannot say to them.”
At the Theresienstadt concentration camp, on June 23 1944, prisoners of war gave the last of sixteen performances of Verdi’s Requiem, for the International Red Cross and high-ranking Nazis.
‘Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín’ presents the story behind this brave act.
This unique performance is coming to the Netherlands for the first time. In a Dutch version with Dutch actors, the National Youth Orchestra, The Netherlands Concert Choir and 4 soloists. The NOS will broadcast the concert drama. With this we make the story available to all Dutch people. Now and in the future.
Due to the corona virus, the execution was moved to December 2021, 76 years after the transfer of the Theresienstadt camp to the Red Cross. Bee Agency takes care of the production.
With more than 9,000 participants from over 80 countries, all of whom we have never seen in real life, MozFest was a special experience. We are proud to have helped the global community on their mission: A safe, reliable and humane internet, accessible to all.
That was a shock. The agenda for the first half of 2020 was full of live events. They are all postponed and moved, of course. Fortunately, we also worked on video and online assignments and soon new projects came our way. It is special to see how, even today, everyone finds creative ways to connect people and share stories. We take that into the future.
But we strongly believe in the power of ‘live’. And we see how serious the consequences of the virus are for many partners and suppliers. That is why we look forward to create something for a live audience again. As soon as it is possible!
The step towards University is often seen as a big one. The Eurekaweek is organized to introduce new students to the University, their fellow students and the city of Rotterdam. But how should this be done in corona times?
We were thrilled to help the Eurekaweek board with that challenge. Together we developed a safe and attractive program that took place partly online and partly physically. With an online platform, the game “Identity Crisis”, a picnic, a visit to the campus, a city game and a daily online talk show. The collaboration between our experienced professionals and the enthusiastic and creative students of Erasmus University Rotterdam was a great experience!
We wanted to create a homemade gift. Peter’s apple orchard helped. 19 different types of apples were waiting for us in old trees, ripe and shiny. So we got to work. On a beautiful Saturday everyone came to pick no less than 600 kilos of apples. In Saskia’s trailer we brought them to Schulp. There they made 500 bottles of delicious fresh juice especially for us.
Curious? We are happy to bring you a bottle!
This year Amersfoort is the National Education City in the Netherlands. In collaboration with the city of Amersfoort, BEE-Agency developed a start-up event with 100 enthusiastic stakeholders.
Together we came up with the program for this special year. It was a dynamic evening full of energy. Due to the outbreak of the corona epidemic, all follow-up activities have been postponed until next year.
