HRH Prince Constantijn to open PROVADA 2017

The thirteenth annual real estate exhibition PROVADA will be officially inaugurated by HRH Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, Startup Envoy for StartupDelta. As special envoy for StartupDelta2020, the Prince is closely involved in business innovation. His opening address will highlight the main theme of PROVADA 2017, ?Connecting the Future?.

HRH Prince Constantijn, Startup Envoy for StartupDelta, believes strongly in the importance of innovation for the Dutch and international economy. He says, ?Innovation is crucial if we want to remain competitive, and that goes for the construction and property sectors, too. New ideas and innovative companies must be given a chance. It?s my hope that PROVADA FUTURE will help make the real estate sector a laboratory for innovation.?

At StartupDelta2020, the Prince succeeded Neelie Kroes, who served as startup ambassador until the middle of last year. As an adviser, HRH Prince Constantijn, Startup Envoy for StartupDelta, was already closely involved in the project. He also advises the European Commission on entering new markets through research and innovation programmes.

PROVADA FUTURE, a platform for trends and innovations in the construction and property sectors, was added to the event last year. Each day of the exhibition, publications, research and innovative projects are presented at PROVADA FUTURE. The platform also hosts matchmaking meetups, masterclasses and networking events.
