DAMEN Shipyards Group
Since 1 September 2008, DAMEN Shipyards Group has attached its name to Nederlands Dans Theater as main sponsor.
This main sponsorship is the crowning glory on a long-standing collaboration with Mr and Mrs Damen personally and DAMEN Shipyards Group as a company. Mr and Mrs Damen have been closely involved with Nederlands Dans Theater for years: first as admirers, later for several years as board members.
For the past few years, DAMEN Shipyards Group has been a member of the Nederlands Dans Theater Society. The company regularly organises events for relations around a performance. Mrs Damen: “As we wanted to convey our enthusiasm and share it with others, we started inviting small groups of personal friends and business relations.” They did so in The Hague, but also abroad, like in Singapore, London, Edinburgh and Bucharest. This gradually made the collaboration more intensive and close, and has ultimately resulted in the main sponsorship.
Alcatel Lucent has been main sponsor of Nederlands Dans Theater since 1 September 2010. After the merger with Alcatel, the partnership with Nederlands Dans Theater was transformed to main sponsorship.
Both DAMEN Shipyards and Alcatel Lucent will be widely represented in the theatres we come to. They will keep inviting relations at home and abroad.
Since September 1st 2012, ABN AMRO is connected to Nederlands Dans Theater.ABN AMRO believes modern dance is an indespensable part of their culture portfolio. Therefore ABN AMRO is very proud to be one of NDT’s Founding Partners.
Gerrit Zalm, CEO of ABN AMRO: ”In the sponsorship policy of ABN AMRO, art and culture are very important pillars. Beside sports and education, our goal is to make culture attractive for everyone. NDT suits us, it is a leading institution, and offers a national and international varied program, ten thousands of visitors are enjoying their performances. ABN AMRO is looking forward to a pleasant co-operation with NDT; more than fifty years of experience as a pioneer within the Dutch art.”
