[2017-12-14] Dujat December Dinner 2017
Last night on December 14th we celebrated the annual end-of-the-year festive DUJAT December Dinner at Hotel Okura in Amsterdam.
This year the event made an enormous growth, with 278 guests (last year 192) who awarded us with their presence. Thank you to all of you who made this possible. We were honored to welcome the Ambassador of Japan H.E. Mr. Inomata and Mrs. Annemarie Jorritsma as our special guests of the evening.
Also many many thanks to the Choir of the International School of Amsterdam (ISA) for their beautiful and moving performance.
This year was also the time for the 6th Edition of the Deshima Awards. (Read more here)
