Last night the annual Dutch Website of the Year Awards took place in the ‘Beurs van Berlage’, Amsterdam. LeaseWeb attended the event as a sponsor and the team was given a great table right in front of the stage. It was a spectacular evening, filled with great food, drinks and entertainment.
The winners of the ‘Website van het jaar verkiezingen 2011’ (as the Dutch would call it) are decided by a popular public vote. This year, 734,174 people took part in the vote to offer their opinion on the content, navigation and design of various websites, spread across 22 different categories.
The award for best ecommerce website was handed out by our very own Ecommerce expert Emile Schouwstra, who had the honor of presenting the prize to www.ibood.com, Europe’s biggest daily deals platform. Other winners last night include www.relatieplanet.nl (best dating website) and www.zylom.com (best online game website).
www.tweakers.net, one of the most popular Dutch IT websites, was officially awarded Website of the year 2011, taking the coveted prize home for the second year in a row.
To see some of the action from the event, we’ve uploaded some photos to our Flickr page:
To everyone that went home with an award: congratulations and we hope to see you again next year!
