About the Activity

Journey Back to the Golden Age for an Exciting and Interactive Team Building Activity

Explore the City of Amsterdam with Your Colleagues and Compete for the title of “The Best Merchant of the 17th Century”

An Engaging Corporate Experience

Planning a corporate event in Amsterdam? Nothing is worse than visiting a city and never seeing the outside of a conference room. With the Trading in the Golden Age of Amsterdam corporate activity, your employees will explore Amsterdam and the success of the Dutch during the Golden Age, to help learn new strategies and teamwork that will benefit the future company culture.

This activity is available for both small and large groups, with the minimum group size being 20 persons. The presentation can be held at the company’s venue or upon request we can reserve a  location. The Golden Age Presenter has over 20 years of experience organizing corporate events and is a passionate historian of Amsterdam and the Golden Age.

How does it work?

Prior to the event, the Golden Age presenter will discuss with you the company message you are hoping to transfer to your employees. He will then apply your input into the presentation and interactive game.  After the hour presentation, the company will be divided into teams. Each team will receive a contact to the Game Master who will inform the team leaders on updates that can influence the end result of the game. For example, “Attention Attention, all the ships have sunk on their way to the Spice Islands, you have now lost 12 shares.” In order to earn the title of “The Best Merchant in the 17th Century,” the team will have to gain the most shares and visit the most significant locations.

Transport your company to the 17th century and visit historical landmarks along the way such as the Rijksmuseum (home of the Night Watch), Beurs van Berlage (the former stock exchange) and many more! This activity is a unique and memorable team building activity as well as a great way to discover Amsterdam.
