Cornelien came into the events business by chance. After her study Contemporary History at the University of Utrecht she found out that she was too commercial to work in that field and found a job with Expoconsult, a Dutch organizer of tradeshows. In her first year Cornelien established the CPhI event, which is the tradeshow for Pharmaceutical Ingredients and Intermediates. From the first show onwards the “the exhibition/events bug” has never left her. In the 30 years in the events business Cornelien has organized numerous events and have won several awards.
With experience in the conference ánd event business Cornelien has organized B2B events like Empack, XM Europe and Asia, ITS Madrid, Sponsorship Europe, Packaging Innovations Amsterdam and many more. Currently Easyfairs Nederland organizes more than 45 annual events for various communities, where Cornelien is responsible for. Serving communities is the goal to organize great events.
