North London venue Alexandra Palace is to house the Dutch Olympic contingent for the duration of the 2012 Games. The Holland Heineken House will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2012 and has established itself as the venue where athletes, team members and hospitality guests of the Dutch Olympic team gather. The temporary venue will also celebrate Dutch achievements and culture. Alexandra Palace’s Trading Company MD, Rebecca Kane, led her team through the bidding process which began over a year ago. “The Olympic site continues to emerge on our horizon, which is why we were so passionate about hosting the Holland Heineken House here,” she said. “The Dutch Olympic Committee and Heineken have seen the House grow into a popular Olympic hotspot in many different cities. London is expected to attract tens of thousands of Dutch visitors a day, both with and without tickets to the sporting events, so we are now currently giving careful consideration to its access policy,” said MD of the Dutch Olympic Committee, Gerard Dielessen
