2020 is already off to a strong start for the Van Gogh Museum’s Meet Vincent van Gogh Experience, with tour stops confirmed in London and Lisbon.
Known for its artistic, culinary and theatrical excellence, London is often described as the creative capital of the world, as shown by the 20 million plus inbound tourists who visit the city each year to discover its treasure trove of attractions.
From Friday, 7 February 2020, Meet Vincent van Gogh will be on display in the cultural heart of London- the city’s South Bank. Close proximity to Waterloo Station will make it the ideal day trip for visitors touring the city’s main attractions. With the prestigious National Theatre, Jubilee Gardens, Queen’s Walk and the London Eye a stone’s throw away, tourists and locals alike can experience Vincent van Gogh like never before.
Meet Vincent van Gogh’s 2019 tour stops in Seoul and Barcelona’s Port Vell resulted in a high combined attendancy rate, charming both Spanish and Korean audiences with its interactivity, captivating storyline and family-friendliness. Looking forward to 2020, it is fitting that Meet Vincent has confirmed tour stops in two of Europe’s most culturally exciting cities.
As Arnold van de Water, General Manager of the Meet Vincent van Gogh Experience for the Van Gogh Museum says, “2019 has been an outstanding year for Meet Vincent van Gogh and Van Gogh Museum experiential content. From Barcelona to Seoul, the Experience has achieved precisely what the Van Gogh Museum intended it to: enriching and inspiring people around the world. With this momentum behind us, we are excited to maximise our impact in London and Lisbon with exceptional venues and highly-experienced partners.”
A Joint Venture
Meet Vincent van Gogh London will be a joint venture between London-based promoter and attractions operator, Golden Tours UK and Proactiv: Live Entertainment. Given Meet Vincent van Gogh's successful collaboration with Proactiv in Barcelona, we are confident that combining Golden Tours' exceptional knowledge of London's tourism industry with Proactiv's passion for the Experience will achieve exceptional results.
“Meet Vincent van Gogh is the ideal addition to London’s arts and cultural attractions scene,” says Mikesh Palan, Managing Director of Golden Tours. “As an official Van Gogh Museum experience, it brings with it not only the prestige of the Museum but also a strong understanding of how to attract a diverse audience. This, combined with Golden Tours’ long-standing expertise in London attractions and events, makes for a very successful collaboration.”
Meanwhile, Proactiv Managing Partner Nicolas Renna states: “Collaborating for a second time with the Meet Vincent van Gogh team reasserts the success of the Experience in Barcelona,” says Renna. “We are excited to continue creating a wonderful experience for our visitors in London.”
