To organise the eighth edition of the IOC World Conference on Sport, Culture and Education in order to put Amsterdam and the Netherlands on the map as creative hosts for top-level sports gatherings.


Children and young people had a unique position during this conference. On arrival, guests were surprised to be welcomed by a dazzling musical number by a group of young people. During the festive opening ceremony, guests were entertained by an aerial ring act by former world gymnastics champion Renske Endel, accompanied by Pearl Jozefzoon. The evening ended with the exuberant beat of fifteen-year-old Dutch star DJ Erik Arbores and dancers from the Lucia Marthas academy. The main programme consisted of presentations by IOC Chairman Jacques Rogge, Mayor Eberhard van der Laan and Minister Edith Schippers. ATPI Corporate Events also provided a young yet experienced team on location, giving the whole congress a youthful, fresh atmosphere.
