Crowds celebrate the best of innovation and plastics at King's Day 2016 festivities in Zwolle
There was certainly no shortage of music, dance and innovation at this year's King's Day celebration in the northeastern Dutch city of Zwolle, Wavin's hometown. Over 70,000 people gathered in the town square throughout the day, irrespective of the abnormally cold weather. They were honoured by a visit by the Royal Dutch Family who mingled with all the festive revelers, including Wavin's talented "movers and shakers" in Technology and Innovation. Wavin's SiTech+ trees, drums and dance props made of Opti-Rib pipes were center stage as musicians and dancers performed for King Willem-Alexander, his beautiful wife – Queen Maxima, and their three lovely daughters – Catharina-Amalia, Alexia and Ariane.
