New in Holland: Five centuries of history at Prinsenhof Groningen

Friars and princes went before you in the Prinsenhof, a beautifully restored church from the early 15th century. The historic grandeur has been restored, and is combined with all modern conveniences to create this newest gem in the heart of the city of Groningen.

The entire staff is ready to ensure the success of your business meeting from 10 to 300 people, or your private dinner. The Garden Room is one of the nicest rooms, overlooking the beautiful Prinsentuin garden. The Vaults Cellar is the place for a drink after your meeting.

25 funniest photos of Mr Holland throwing paint around at #IMEX12 in Vegas

Now that the dust of the Nevada desert has settled and the orange paint has dried, it is fun to look back at the great times we had at IMEX America last month. I have made a selection of the 25 funniest photos with me emptying my bucket of orange paint over innocent bystanders. Which one is your favourite?

According to Facebook, this picture is the most ‘likable’: 524 people liked this picture of Dan Williams, which earned Dan an original Dutch VANMOOF bike.

People with great acting skills!

The whole concept of the ‘flying blob of orange paint’ only works by the mercy of the acting skills of the ‘receiver’. These people really acted into it!

Special encounters: Mr. Holland was not the only mascotte in Vegas!

And finally: the groups!

I really enjoyed splashing larger groups. Somehow these pictures look really realistic, don’t you think?

That’s it folks! What’s your favourite?

Looking forward to bringing my bucket of orange paint to EIBTM in Barcelona in 3 weeks. Please come by our Holland Booth (J300) to take a funny photo with me!
