Internship vacancy: events

Internship Description

BlueCity is literally a swimming pool full of possibilities. In the former tropical swimming paradise Tropicana we are building a model city with sustainable and circular companies, where we are daringly and joyfully heading for an economy in which waste does not exist. The output of one entrepreneur is the input of another. Waste becomes a valuable building block. Thus, together with entrepreneurs, researchers, biodesigners, makers and creatives, we create a circular economy, close cycles and form the city and the economy of the future. Sounds good right? It is. Would you like to contribute to this, do you like to be in contact with clients, is organizing in your blood and are you looking for an internship in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment? Then you've come to the right place at BlueCity: we are looking for an intern for our Events Team starting in January 2023. 



The events team is an important part of BlueCity. At BlueCity, we rent out different rooms for different types of events: from meetings and conferences to get-togethers and receptions. In addition to these B2B events for external rentals, BlueCity also organizes events for our own programming and we regularly give tours. So almost every day we have groups of enthusiastic people on the floor who want to be inspired by the circular economy in practice. Team Events is responsible for around 600 tours and 300 business meetings within BlueCity each year.

In this dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, you and the events team determine the success of a business meeting, tour or event. Besides you, the permanent events team consists of two people who organize everything. For support during the events there is also a fixed team of tour guides, hosts, catering staff and floor managers. In your internship you will work with all these people.
