Royal Tropical Institute (KIT)

The 38e Hotelvrijmibo!

22 January 2016

Would you ever expect to find Amsterdam “Best Kept Secret” on the connection bunt between our City Centre and Amsterdam District East? The Amsterdam Tropen Hotel and her hidden pearl, KIT Meetings & Events, are connected to the Royal Tropical Institute. Situated in the Oosterpark, the hotel connects the energetic city with the tranquility of the park and the international knowledge hub that the Royal Tropical Institute represents. This meeting place and knowledge hub bursts with inspiration. This is where the ideas of tomorrow arise and knowledge is shared.

The day after!

The story of the 38th edition

Despite the bad weather 400 hotello’s came to this 38th Hotelvrijmibo at the marble hall of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT). All the ambassadors agreed; this was a great edition!


Everyone got a warm welcome when they arrived. They received a delicious welcome drink of Licor Cuarenta y tres! After that a variety of delicious snacks and drinks were served and some visitors enjoyed a guided tour through the building. They all were very impressed about the history and the beautiful ornaments of KIT.

Some visitors tried to expand their network and this edition was a great example of how easy it is to meet new people in a relaxed atmosphere. Interesting stories are told and business cards swapped.


During the evening people start dancing on the music of DJ Sweat Le Freak. We want to thank the visitors for the great atmosphere because without you their is no Hotelvrijmibo.


We hope to see you again at the 39th Hotelvrijmibo!
