The port city of Rotterdam has been declared as the Best Festival City of the World in 2010. The second largest Dutch city was awarded the title last Thursday by the International Festivals and Events Association IFEA at the annual IFEA conference.
According to the jury, Rotterdam demonstrates a positive attitude towards festivals and has excellent infrastructure. Additionally, the organizers and professional services in the city were found to be co-operating closely to allow events to take place. The aim of the prize is to stimulate the festivals and events industry around the world.
