The 25th edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag last year was the last organized by the event agency EQ International. The organization is now in the hands of Emmy Poppelaars and former EQ International employee Linda Mailly. They will do everything they can to grow the auction further together with the board.
Two new, but certainly not unknown faces at the front. Until about 10 years ago, Emmy Poppelaars worked for EQ International, where she was already very pleased to assume the role of project manager for Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. “I did that for about five years with great pleasure, until I moved to Groningen. With regret in my heart I had to say goodbye to the great job for this auction, but I have always followed everything with regards to the foal auction, thanks to my father who is part of the selection committee”, says Emmy, who works for her own for about three years now. One of the events she is in charge of is the international horse show Indoor Drachten, and now Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has been added. “When it became known that EQ International was going to quit, I was approached to work as project manager for the Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. I did not doubt about that for a second, I am very happy that the auction has come on my path again. And I look forward to working with Linda. In recent years she has focused mainly on the financial part of the auction, but she is now also expanding her tasks. Together we will be committed to the auction.”
With each their own knowledge and expertise, Emmy and Linda are very motivated to expand the success of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag further. “For years the auction has been progressing and we hope to continue that development. Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has realized a great network and an excellent auction organization, and we want to continue with the auction in the same way. Because that is clearly a formula that works!”, says Emmy Poppelaars.
