Wow… Just wow… That’s the best description of the LeaseWeb Texel Airshow 2012. LeaseWeb was the proud head sponsor of this unique event, which took place on the 28th of July on the island of Texel, the Netherlands. We had been working like mad men (and women) in the weeks leading up to day of the show, designing t-shirts, ordering fifteen thousand miniature versions of the LeaseWeb Extra 330LT, and doing quite a bit of PR-activity to attract attention to the event. We also invited many customers and partners to enjoy the spectacle with us. And, of course, all our employees were welcome too, whether they worked in our Dutch, German or American offices.
Things are heating up for the LeaseWeb Texel Airshow on the 28th of July! While it’s still more than a month away, we’re quite busy making all the arrangements for our guests, making sure they’ll have a wonderful experience. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect on that summer day and how you can win a VIP treatment as a guest of LeaseWeb.
“In the fight against cancer, both patients and their loved ones feel a huge sense of helplessness. Cancer is everywhere. Fighting it seems pointless. Alpe d’HuZes was created with the aim to empower people to convert the sense of powerlessness, caused by cancer, into one of strength. We achieve this by motivating as many people as possible to constantly challenge and expand their boundaries.” Part of the mission of Alpe d’HuZes.

Did you know the Netherlands has 14 small islands in the north, collectively known as the West Frisian Islands? Only 5 of those are actually inhabited, the most populous of which is the island of Texel (pronounced: Tessel). Why would we tell you this? Well, after a long absence, one of the most spectacular shows in the Netherlands takes place again at Texel Airport this year: The LeaseWeb Texel Airshow!
Our Corporate Social Responsibility program is really important to everyone at LeaseWeb, and is something which is reflected on a number of levels throughout our work. We constantly address our practices to ensure that they are kept sustainable, and for this reason we utilize green datacenters. Besides this, LeaseWeb is connecting more clients to their cloud products daily, which results in improved resource utilization, which in turn is good for our sustainability. Another aspect of Corporate Social Responsibility which we’re keen to promote is the charity work that we have recently begun to do with an animal sanctuary: Stichting AAP (the AAP Foundation).
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.
