Host of the evening will be Pep Rosenfeld, Founder of Boom Chicago. 

Pep is Boom Chicago's creative multi-tasker: Writer, performer, director, trainer, stand-up comedian, public speaker, host, facilitator and developer of new corporate programs.

His passion is making people laugh in just about any situation. In his 2012 TED talk, Fight, Flight or Make Your Opponent Laugh, he spoke about using humor to win over hostile audiences and how comedy helps deal with trauma and stress, whether it be caused by 9/11 or the premature birth of his sons (they're fine!). Now he uses comedy and improvisation to help brands get through the trauma and stress of crafting and communicating their internal and external messages and making them stick.

Official opening 

The guest who will perform the official opening of Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2017 is still to be determined. 


Junior Jazz Unlimited Bigband
The gala night will be musically framed by the Junior Jazz Unlimited; a Jazz bigband with young musicians ranging in age from 14 to 18 years old. They competed in Hollands Got Talent and have played many festivals including North Sea Jazz alongside names such as: Benjamin Herman, Candy Dulfer, Shirma Rouse and Kyteman.

Learn more about the Junior Jazz Unlimited here (website in Dutch). 

Got the VIBE!
Last year the crowd went wild on the repertoire of Got the VIBE! Enough reason to invite them again to swing the night away during the closing drink.
