Team artist agency Buro van Otterloo

The close team of Van Otterloo is formed by: Katelijne van Otterloo, Helena Gitzels, Annemijn van Andel and Bas van Otterloo.

The team does what they do best: together ensure that entertainment, acts, music and total concepts of Buro van Otterloo are used appropriately, originally, creatively, efficiently and above all successfully and that preparation and execution run flawlessly, so you can unburden.

The big difference in approach is the preparation. First ask for the background and the purpose of the event and then make a suitable quotation / total concept tailored to your needs. This way we prevent fragmented deployed entertainment. Everything has to fit together, form one whole with the target group, location, catering, decoration and, not least, the purpose or theme of the event, where as much technology as possible can be combined.

Music and entertainment organized by Van Otterloo has never been made overnight, there is always a lot of thought. Our goal is always to be of added value for the customer.

Of course it is also possible to ‘just’ book an artist, band or act without having to go into a special thought or philosophy. But background information is something that is very important for Artists agency van Otterloo because our goal is to program the right artists at the right event!

Ons team

Katelijne van Otterloo
Katelijne van OtterlooKatelijne van Otterloo (creative director / owner)
“As creative director I am responsible for the total picture, a sort of architect of this artistic and also business agency. The motivating challenge for me is to combine my experience in music and television business with my academic training in Architectural Engineering. I combine the best of both worlds within my own company, where I ‘build’ with people’s talents. I create new shows in collaboration with others, deal with applications that require customization, write total concepts in various themes, I am a talent scouter, maintain the websites and social media and I have the marketing management as a task (although there’s not much time left for that!). I am very grateful, happy and proud of the people around me in the office, at home (my great husband Bas, my son and daughter) and in my personal social and business network, who provide me with advice, feedback and assistance. I also feel it’s my job to teach interns really some event- and entertainment related skills and show them that being able to make the difference is a lot of fun. But I would never be able to do this without the energy that my performances give me as a pop-jazz singer. I love to sing at all the beautiful events and concert stages! I must say, I really do have the best of both worlds…”(more info www.katelijne.nl)
