Dutch event venue seeks joint venture for new business models
The Dutch company is an event and exhibition venue in the middle of the Netherlands. Due to Covid-19 the Dutch government has cancelled all public events until September 1st. The company is looking for concepts, business models and partners for safe commercial events, alternative use of their square meters and parking-space and solutions to make large scale events safe. The company prefers to share risks and revenues in a Joint Venture. This request refers to an open innovation platform.
The Dutch company is a large event and exhibition venue (100.000 square meters and 4.300 parking spaces) in the heart of the city in the middle of the Netherlands. Every year the company organises and hosts hundreds of live events and exhibitions, thousands of conferences and meetings and online platforms for millions of visitors, contributing to the professional development of companies, organisations and whole industries, as well as to economic activity on a local, national and international level.
Due to Covid-19 the Dutch government has cancelled all public events until September 1st. This means that their facilities and resources are not utilised, except their gift back to the community by hosting a drive-in location for Covid-research for the nearby medical center. This is important and rewarding work, but it does not pay the bills.
In order to utilize their assets in a commercial way, the company is looking for
concepts, business models and partners for safe commercial events
alternative commercial uses of their assets (venue and parking spaces)
To share risks and revenues in these uncertain times, the company proposes cooperation in a Joint Venture, but is also open for other types of cooperation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This technology request is part of an innovation challenge and is published on an open innovation platform from May 22th until June 29th 2020. If an organisation does express interest in cooperation with this firm before closing date, it will be guided towards this open innovation platform on which one can get in touch with the company experts. Mind that posts on this platform are not confidential. Beside open discussions on the platform, sharing of confidential information will be made possible on demand. After that, the firm will select the SME's with whom they would like to cooperate in the development of a solution. Once the challenge is closed, EOI's for this technology request will be treated in the traditional way.
