The Heritage Exhibition team members have postponed our event for the end of June 2015. The event will take place in Amsterdam, Nederland. We have not decided yet on the final venue .
We are re-vamping our information web-site: it should be available to the public by November 2012 .
The members wanted to feel comfortable, in summer rather than brace a cold Dutch winter. Alongside the premier, seminars will be included.
For city activities, the event originators are planning events, ship trips and city tours. The premier evening will be highlighted with a Gala: Dance & dinner.
As all good things take time, postponing the event was a welcome solution. As a result even more material for the Heritage Event can be brought forward . We kindly appreciate your understanding to this inconvenience .
The Presentation sector would kindly request::
• Old family photography in scans of family relics / mementoes which would be interesting presentation material, we only accept scans please without frames when possible as we have to enlarge the photography.
• Coats of arms are being collected, should you have an image of an authentic [VOC period] coats of arms, we would be most happy to have a copy.
The Heritage Exhibition team sends their sincerer thanks and hopes to hear from you soon. Thank you
