So do you have an idea of a good events, preferably in food and sustainability, let’s see how we can make it a joined project. I love to connect the right people and knowledge together. My helicopter view is valuable in your team to connect sales, marketing, logistics and production together and work in the same direction to a great end result. All lines should be connected. You can work with Building on Events in the role of:


I assist you with your visitors marketing, further internationalization, the organizing of theme tours, organizing networking lunches with stakeholders, side visits and country pavilions. I help you to establish local, regional and international contacts and build long-term relationships, where people and knowledge are linked and the event is the means.


I create your event concept, trade show set up, conference outlines, travel inspiration trip or design a theme square or several ones. Hire me for your program development, speakers selection / approach, marketing and project management for (inter) national congresses. I can also create a platform for a new sector with a community website, mailings, social media and meetings.

What customers say:

During the Seagriculture conferences, where she was in charge of the organization, I have really been impressed by the involvement of Christie in this specific area which is the seaweed science in all its aspects. She got in touch with the most eminent scientists with a right approach.
I also was impressed by her calmness and the fact that she made the things easy even in case of difficulties. And she does the things with a smile, that is not only pleasant but also a sign that everything is under control or controllable…


Principal Scientist chez Cargill

Christie is a hardworking and very social and loyal person, never losing deadlines.
She manages to complete the organisation of an event even in a limited period of time. The Rail-Tech exhibition in Utrecht grew under her supervision from a national small exhibition into a well-known and respected European get together and meeting point. Always creative and trying to improve the formula. She listens to the clients and filters the needs, within commercial targets.
Christie improved processes within Europoint and was the backbone for the other project managers.


Directeur, Europoint

Three outstanding features of Christie de Vrij:
Enthusiastic, if you’re a cheerful person and kind person where others feel comfortable with. 
Strong communication skills, your automatic translation to promote events on LinkedIn and Twitter is amazing and works out!
Proactive, a project proceeds smoothly with your schedule and plan of action and follow-up actions. You don’t wait and are very interactive!


Projektmanager Aquaculture DLG e.V. – German Agricultural Society

It is a pleasure to work with Christie de Vrij, she is a loyal, efficient and humorous team partner and manages all ups and downs of events and congresses in a professional, prompt and solution orientated way.


Branche manager Laboratorium Technology, FHI

Christie masters the project management related to events as international congresses.
She is creative and adds value to her work with client focus. Problem solving and positive thinking capacity are some of her skills.
I clearly recommend her work.
