KLM (& partners) celebrate the World party - Private Invitation

Yesterday I received an e-mail from the CEO of KLM, Mr. Harm Kreulen, with a private invitation for an event/party being held at Schiphol East, in a hangar on December 9, 2018.
No times were given, but they want me to RSVP, also if I bring guests.

Anyone else here who got the invite? Because some of my friends (also Platinums) did not receive the invitation, so there must have been made a selection.

Anyone with more information about the event? At least (an) aircraft(s) will be there since a visit to the cockpit and cargo hold is being talked about. Aside from that they mention about a trip around the world, mainly food, sports, dance/music and cultures.

I'm curious to know what I can expect

Geachte heer XXXX,

Op zaterdag 8 december a.s. organiseren KLM en American Express samen met een aantal belangrijke partners een speciale dag voor hun meest loyale klanten. Graag nodigen wij u daarom, samen met uw familie en vrienden, uit voor het exclusieve event KLM & Partners Celebrate the world.

Op dit unieke event kunt u, samen met uw familie en vrienden, een reis om de wereld maken en u laten inspireren door verschillende culturen. Zo kunt u diverse culinaire keukens ontdekken, voetballen in Rio, dansen met een draak in China of op safari gaan in Afrika. Ook kunt u een kijkje nemen in de cockpit van een KLM-vliegtuig of het vrachtruim bezoeken.

Wilt u ons voor 14 november laten weten of wij op uw komst mogen rekenen? U kunt maximaal 4 gasten meenemen en zich via de eventpagina inschrijven.
Ja, ik kom...Indien u niet aanwezig kunt zijn, meldt u zich dan hier af...

Wij kijken uit naar uw komst!

Met vriendelijke groet,

Harm Kreulen
Directeur KLM Nederland

I did not, perhaps I should spend more on my American Express FB? I spend more then 4 zeros a month on it. Perhaps not excessive enough...



but go, went to a huisjes party and enjoyed that.

There was what seems to be a similar event organised by AF in Paris (not in a hangar at the airport, though) a few weeks ago, around the new FB programme.

The buffet was excellent (including La Premire dessert) and there was also a draw with free tickets (short-/medium-/long-haul) on AF/KL/A5/TO to win, among other prizes.

yes that was a very nice FB event, in Porte de Versailles exhibition park, during Top Rsa convention.

I spoke with some people at the event and found out that the 8th was in cooperation with AMEX Platinum, 11dec was for business related contacts, e.g. travel agents.
9 December (my date) was for a selected group of Platinum status holders on FlyingBlue with certain 'rating' (anyone knows how they rate their customers/cardholders?)
