On Sunday, 24 June 2017 Antwerp hosted the Belgian Cycling Championship. It proved the right setting for an exciting QbD client event. To welcome our clients and new contacts we picked a strategic site: Grand Café Modeste. While our guests enjoyed the buffet and assorted drinks, the riders tackled 238 km of dry windy roads. A 14-round circuit sprinkled with cobblestone stretches. One of these bumpy parts ran along our Grand Café. So we were in for 14 thrilling passages.
Cocktails and cobblestones
The 14 laps gave us ample occasion to cheer on the shaken and stirred riders. No wonder the gin-tonics and other refreshments were greatly appreciated. It created the right atmosphere for networking, strengthening bonds with clients and catching up with colleagues old and new.
A sweet finale
Around five o’clock we watched the finale on the big screen, backed by a delicious buffet of desserts. The impressive jump from Oliver Naesen decided an exciting race. It put the cherry on the cake of a vibrant get-together experience well worth repeating.
