Van Raam dealers are introduced to Dutch culture

At Saturday, a part of the Dutch culture was introduced. After a bicycle trip at De Hoge Veluwe National Park, the dealers were getting a tour at the Kröller-Müller Museum. After this visit, the bicycle trip went on to the Dutch Open Air Museum. At this museum, everyone was getting a tour so that all the dealers got acquainted with a part of ‘the Netherlands of the past’. After this tour, there was another tour with beer tasting in the local brewery of the Open Air Museum. This tasting was very much appreciated, especially when everyone was allowed to take a bottle of beer with them!
The evening program on Saturday, consisted of a diner and the traditional bowling competition with prices. The International Dealer Days were concluded after the bowling competition and the award ceremony. Sunday, May 26th, everyone could have breakfast on their own before they went home again.
Van Raam can look back on two fun and informative days with the dealers!
