How we started out

Helping out for a day

Founder Patrick Hop has been in the business for more than 25 years. As a 15-year-old, he was asked by his neighbor to help break down the Rolling Stones tour "Voodoo Lounge". What was supposed to be helping out just for a day turned into a true passion. Together with "The Indian Crew" he built events such as Celine Dion, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, U2 and Pinkpop.


Start of PRO FM events

Ideally, there was daily building events, but training had to be started and completed. Of course, also with a focus on events and organization. And because blood is thicker than water, from the garage at home in 2003, PRO FM Events was started. PRO FM Events' first job was Bruce Springsteen at De Kuip (NL) in 2003.

First dance concert in The Netherlands

So from the start on, the bar was set very high. And it only got higher. Among other things, PRO FM Events was hired for the first dance concert in a stadium in the Netherlands: Tiësto in the Gelredome.


Biggest stage ever

In time PRO FM Events grew to one of the biggest en reliable partners in the event sector. Which meant we got to build more and more amazing stages. 2007 was a great year in which we were able to build events like André Rieu's first Vrijthof concert and the Efteling special. And as fantastic as they were, Schloss Schonbrunn surely was the highlight. It was the biggest stage ever on tour, which took the PRO FM guys to the USA, Europe and even Australia and New Zealand.


Over the years, PRO FM Events, which was renamed EVENEMENTENBOUWER.NL in 2018, has become the reliable partner in providing staff in the set-up and dismantling of all types of events. But also as an employer, EVENEMENTENBOUWER.NL is a stepping stone for anyone who wants a behind-the-scenes look at setting up and dismantling events. Whether you are looking for a part-time job, a vacation job or a full-time position as an event builder or want to grow in our beautiful field, EVENEMENTENBOUWER.NL is the right place for you!
