The protocol and hospitality services provided by the protocol officers of the Protocolbureau in the Netherlands (the so called hosts, Junior Partners and Senior Partners) are highly customised to the needs of the clients. This level of customisation requires great creativity, energy, and intellectual capability on the part of the protocol officers as they must perform a myriad of tasks at any particular event ranging from the general organisation and co-ordination of the event to the detailed greeting and escorting of (international) guests and dignitaries. At all events, it is the professionalism and composure of the protocol officers that enhances the atmosphere and ensures events are successes beyond expectations.
We pride ourselves in the attention we pay to the selection, training, and teambuilding of our protocol officers. A host becomes a Junior Partner after having completed our full training programme and gained sufficient operational experience. The title Senior Partners is only given to those with exceptional operational experience. The Protocolbureau has the disposal of 50 protocol officers 75% of whom are men.

The Protocolbureau was established by students of the The Hague Hotel Management School in 1995. Their motive was the need to gain experience in hospitality up to the highest level. They did so by organizing lectures and working as hosts at (business) meetings. The first lecture was delivered by the former Master of Ceremonies of Her Majesty the Queen, and the first assignment was to present the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Awards.
