The APS Partner Programme is an opportunity for the “better halves” of exhibitors and attendees to relax and enjoy a VIP experience in the fun-tastic city of Amsterdam on Thursday November 16, 2017. This is an exclusive day exploring Dutch, gastronomic highlights, as well as some serious pampering.
APS17 Partner Programme Schedule
9am – 9.30am – Breakfast
Meet at the APS Partner Programme breakfast in the Hilton Appollolaan suite. Guests will receive a welcome gift on arrival.
10am – 2.30pm – Gastronomic walking tour of Amsterdam
Full to bursting with delicious hotspots, the APS Partner Programme tour has been specifically designed to make sure that you revel in all the tasty morsels that this fantastic city has to offer. Leading the culinary way in Holland, we will be taking in the street food, beverages, stories and culture of this beautiful European city.
The tour will start off with typical Dutch and colonial specialties in the multicultural neighbourhood of ‘De Pijp’, home to one of the biggest markets in the Netherlands – Albert Cuypmarket. This culinary whirlwind will then swoop you upwards and onwards to visit some small family owned businesses as well as specialty shops, typical of Amsterdam, found around the city centre. But wait, there’s more! You will be refreshed with local and regional craft beers throughout and take part in a tasting of traditional Dutch gin, Jenever.
During the experience you will pass some of the famous city attractions including the statue of a famous Dutch singer Andre Hazes, the beautiful boutique shopping street – the Utrechtsestraat, the Rembrandt Square, the well known Bloemenmarkt or Flower Market finishing off with a stop at the Begijnhof (a pretty enclosed courtyard dating from the early 14th century and one of the oldest hofjes in the city of Amsterdam).
You will then board a complimentary shuttle bus back to the Hilton at 2.30pm.
3pm — 5pm – Relax, rest and pamper with Giedre
Giedre Pankaite, the APS Beauty Therapist, will bring spa treatments to you in the Partner Programme Suite. You can choose from manicures, pedicures or massages.
