1st Annual Diplomatic BBQ


By Johann P. Gies, Junior Editor. 

The end of a warm and pleasant summer has been celebrated on the evening of Wednesday September 17th with the 1st Diplomatic BBQ organised by Crowne Plaza Hotel Den Haag – Promenade in collaboration with Diplomat Magazine. Under the initially intense summer sun, which in the course of the evening became more gentle, the sponsors, friends and guests of our Magazine enjoyed a carefully selected and well grilled variation of precious meats, healthy salads, refreshing drinks and sweet deserts in a comfortable and outstanding atmosphere. The evening was finalised by a private piano concert by Diplomat Magazine’s pianist Joris van Goudoever. All in all this was a brilliant start for this new annual diplomatic event. The guests and friends are looking forward to next year’s  diplomatic BBQ at CrownePlaza hotel, which will be as sun-kissed as this years debut.

On the beautiful terrace of the hotel, over twenty five ambassadors, diplomats and embassy staff attend this great event.  Vincent Pahlplatz, General Manager of the hotel welcomed back all diplomats in The Hague and together with his team he allowed the diplomats to share their summer experiences with colleagues and friends, while enjoying the great BBQ food, cocktails, drinks and appetizers.
