Mathieu van Welden, a new sales influence at Crowne Plaza Antwerp

Who is Mathieu Van Welden:

Mathieu Van Welden is a seasoned professional in the MICE world, has recently joined the Crowne Plaza Antwerp. With his presence in the hotel and his passion for hospitality, his entry promises to bring a breath of fresh air to the team.

Where did your passion for hospitality come from?

Since childhood, I have been surrounded by the world of hospitality. My path therefore soon led me to hotel school in secondary school and then to hotel management. Although my original goal was to open my own restaurant, I discovered during my various hotel internships that the hotel microbe was irresistible.

What makes Crowne Plaza Antwerp special in your eyes?

Crowne Plaza Antwerp, as one of the largest hotels in Flanders, and has a special meaning to me. Located on the edge of the city, next to Antwerp Expo, the hotel not only offers excellent facilities such as a generous swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room, but also recently renovated rooms that are a wonderful addition to the already impressive location. The hotel’s ambition to contribute sustainably to society is something I believe in with me.

What makes the challenge at CPA so interesting for Mathieu?

The recent renovations of meeting rooms on the 16th floor and the latest part of the rooms illustrate Crowne Plaza Antwerp’s determination to excel in the MICE world. Every time I look out the window on the 16th floor, I am amazed by the unique look of the hotel, which he says really stands out in the industry.

My goal is to make Crowne Plaza Antwerp “top of mind” both for one-to-one meetings, larger meetings and international conferences. I think the efforts of the city of Antwerp and the congress bureau ACB to promote the city as a destination are also a huge added value. With an experienced team of professionals, I feel a positive dynamic in the team and we strive to put Crowne Plaza on the map as the venue for meetings and events.
