Houthoff continues to support Dutch National Opera & Ballet as main sponsor
21 January 2021
21 January 2021We remain the proud main sponsor of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. On 1 January 2021, we extended the existing sponsorship by 1.5 years. "We are happy with our collaboration with top international companies and see it as our responsibility to continue to provide our support, especially now that the continuity of the performing arts is at stake," says Edward de Bock, Managing Partner at Houthoff.
We have had a successful cooperation over the past three years, where the connection between the cultural and legal worlds has resulted in special initiatives and events. For the extended sponsorship, the ambition is to further deepen the cooperation and strengthen each other in our own expertise.
"We are extremely pleased that Houthoff has decided to commit to us for the coming period. Once more, Houthoff underlines the importance of art and culture in the Netherlands and beyond. It is extraordinary that they have made this commitment, especially during the coronavirus crisis. We can use all the support that we can get. We have already been able to carry out many wonderful initiatives together, and we intend to do so again in the coming 1.5 years in an innovative way," said Sophie de Lint, Managing Director of Dutch National Opera, and Ted Brandsen, Managing Director of Dutch National Ballet.
Our firm has been the first main sponsor since three organisations merged into a new organisation, Dutch National Opera & Ballet , in 2013. This year's extended sponsorship agreement was digitally signed by Edward de Bock, Managing Partner; Elisabeth Houtman, Head of Marketing at Houthoff; Ted Brandsen, Managing Director of Dutch National Ballet; and Sophie de Lint, Managing Director of Dutch National Opera.
