3 April 2019_Last December The Dylan Amsterdam asked Cream PR how they could celebrate the 20th anniversary of this deluxe boutique hotel, located slap-bang in the middle of our nation’s capital. Our creative team devised The Dylan Talks, a cultural concept in which the hotel offers a stage for citizens of Amsterdam, by citizens of Amsterdam. And of course for the hotel’s guests.

The Dylan Talks
This series of events has an educational and/or classical character and they all will be held in either one of the hotel’s intimate and stylish areas, or in The Dylan’s cosy courtyard. The program of The Dylan Talks can vary from classical music concerts to book presentations of well-known authors. These events can also be lectures with educational elements, which are related to The Dylan’s history and/or its location.

First up: Hanna Bervoets
The kick-off for The Dylan Talks will be held on 20th May with a literary night. Author Alma Mathijssen will interview Dutch author, essayist and scriptwriter Hanna Bervoets (a.o. Everything there was, Ivanov and Lieve Celine). They will talk about her work and her life as a successful writer. In May 2019 Bervoets’ latest novel Welkom in het rijk der zielen will be published.

20th Anniversary menu
On March 28th The Dylan started its celebrations with a special 20th anniversary menu served in its Michelin starred restaurant Vinkeles, attended by a select group of guests, such as editors of renowned lifestyle titles such as Vogue, ELLE, L’Officiel, Nouveau, Winq, and Jan Magazine. On that night The Dylan Talks was introduced as well, which was greeted with enthusiasm.

Hans van der Beek, journalist of Amsterdam based newspaper Parool was present as well and wrote the following review.
