Team Business & Events

The Business & Events team guarantees the smooth running of the events that our clients organise in the Concertgebouw. We aim to ensure that the various rooms are used in the most appropriate way. The Concertgebouw team offers a fully inclusive service, including reception, technical support, catering, etc. 

An Merlier

An is responsible for the overall coordination of the Business & Events team. She joined the team in January 2018 and will succeed Francis. An has more than 10 years experience in corporate events, marketing and communication in the financial world and the real estate sector. Her love for events and the cultural sector brought her to the Concertgebouw. She is your first point of contact when you want to organize something in the Concertgebouw. With her hands-on mentality and entrepreneurial spirit she guides you from the start of your event.

Francis Op de Beeck

Francis has been working in the Concertgebouw since December 2000 and has thus seen the building become the bustling meeting place as it is today! He will end his professional career at the end of 2018, but of course he will first ensure a smooth transfer with An. Thanks to his extensive experience, Francis likes to think creatively with you and informs you about surprising and original concepts.

Marie-Paule Van de Moortel

Event Manager Marie-Paule has been working at the Concertgebouw since 2001 and knows the building inside and out. She has years of experience in organizing all kinds of receptions, concerts and accompanying receptions. She is your point of contact and guides your event from start to finish and in detail, taking into account your wishes. “For every problem there is a solution.”

Pieter François

Event Manager Pieter is a born organizer. Before joining the Concertgebouw in 2012, he gained experience at an event office, various festivals and in the TV world. As a result, he has extensive experience in the organization of conferences, seminars, concerts and media events. Pieter helps you with the smile in the organization of your event in the Concertgebouw.
