We, Carbon Events, a full-service live communication agency based in Amsterdam, are proud to participate Pride Amsterdam 2024. As the founder and owner of Carbon Events, Mike Verschuur is not only a pioneer in the events industry but also the first openly gay racing driver. Twelve years ago, he was one of the ambassadors during Amsterdam Pride and organized his own boat dedicated to sports and athletes who want to be themselves. Since then, we’ve been part of it every year, not only with our own boat but also by coordinating the participation of various companies in the Canal Parade. Organizing events and supporting the LGBTQ+ community is in our DNA.

This year, we promise once again to make a striking appearance with our unique concept, diverse guests, and interaction with the audience along the canals. We invite our key clients from various sectors to show that we are committed to inclusivity and diversity, both at events and within our own organizational culture. The theme for this year is “YOUR REFLECTION OF “IM”PERFECTION“, a celebration of diversity and individuality that promotes unity. By placing a red kiss💋 on the first two letters of “IMPERFECTION”, we transform this word into “PERFECTION”, emphasizing that everyone’s uniqueness is perfection. It’s not about imperfection, but about celebrating everyone’s ability to be themselves and be celebrated for it.

With a boat adorned with stunning mirrors, we create an experience for the audience along the canals, allowing them to see themselves and feel supported. During the journey, guests are invited to admire themselves in the sea of mirrors and celebrate the power of love together.
