Ten Kate Flowers & Decoration has been the creative force behind decorating some of the most talked-about annual events. Their creative drive has also included creative stage-settings for smaller, one-off events such as wedding parties, business presentations and grand openings. From design to execution, the professionals at Ten Kate Flowers & Decoration take care that their events hew to the tastes of the moment as well as the theme of the event. Every detail, from flower decorations, greenery, furnishings and decor are perfectly matched with each other and the wishes of the client.
A recent inquiry from one of the largest art fairs in New York has the professionals at Ten Kate all abuzz. Joachime Hutten, Project Leader Events at Ten Kate puts it well:
"Of course we're taking this challenge on - with all our talent and experience on board! The challenge isn't so much in the event itself. After all, this is our bread and butter. But there are many aspects that are different from an event organized in the Netherlands. Or in Europe, for that matter," Ms. Hutten says. She continues, "For example, the regulations regarding what flowers may and may not be displayed are far different in the US. We also use a lot of local talent in the actual execution of the planning. How will the local labor regulations influence our planning?"
These are questions that are not easily answered. Ms. Hutten has fortunately found a rich resource through Oost NL. She explains,
"Remco Lucassen from Oost NL has been a tremendous resource," she says, "He opened their network and information base to us in helping us to find the right answers at the right time. This helps the pieces of the puzzle fit neatly together. By the time the show comes around, later this year, we will be in a much stronger position to make a real impression in New York City!"
Ten Kate Flowers & Decoration, in addition to this world-renown fair in New York, also has experience with TEFAF Maastricht, Art Basel, TopShelf Open, PAN Amsterdam, the International Horse Driving Competition Beekbergen, Wings-Wheels & Goggles, Cubus Gala, Concourse d'Elegance, the Millionaire's Fair, Eurotop, KLM Tennis Open and Baselworld.
