Danger No voltage!

The monumental centuries-old Fort Westoever in Den Helder housed a military emergency power plant dating back to the Cold War. Today the fortress has become a tourist destination, housing a brewery and restaurant. For Beleef het Avontuur DST developed the special escape rooms of Danger No Voltage!, in which the atmosphere of the Cold War takes centre stage.

Visitors become elite team members of the special marine task force Marine Unit Technical Support. The entire Dutch power grid has been blacked out by a cyber-attack. Only by starting up the ‘forgotten’ emergency power plant from the Cold War can the country be saved. Will your team complete this mission within the hour?

DST developed the two rooms’ storylines, visitor flow and design. As a result, visitors find themselves participating in their own personal action movie. Expotise was responsible for building the interiors. They used techniques that are novel in the escape room scene. Exactly what, you will have to find out for yourself by visiting…

Visitors can play both escape rooms subsequently, or independently. Two-team visits are also possible, as both the Control Room and Engine Room have their own stories, atmospheres and solutions. No matter how you play them, these are one-of-a-kind escape rooms you’re guaranteed not to find again anytime soon.

Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric Netherlands receives a wide range of guests. From specialised technicians to business relations. DST helped Schneider Electric unlock its corporate story for its headquarters in Hoofddorp, with amongst other things a mini expo in its main entrance hall and a B2B space about solutions the company offers to its customers.

Schneider Electric believes in reliable, safe and above all sustainable energy, for everybody. In the main hall visitors discover Schneider Electric’s drive to renew the global energy transition and automation markets. From low-tech reading light up to whole smart office buildings, this expo is full of showcases, stories and short movies.

On its first floor Schneider Electric takes corporate relations through its capabilities, such as EcoStruxures, which offers solutions in software, hardware and smart applications. The existing tour of the award-winning sustainable building itself was further added to with examples of Schneider Electric’s translation of EcoStruxure into underlaying equipment. Schneider Electric can be visited by appointment only.

G4S Innovation Centre

Experience cash processes

G4S Nederland had a world’s first with its own experience centre on cash management. In this G4S Innovation Centre in Utrecht, businesses experience first-hand how they can efficiently and safely set up their cash and electronic money flows. DST developed this B-to-B experience together with G4S.

‘Sales is ideally about clients experiencing your knowledge’

Why, how, what

The centre is divided into why, how and what areas. Visitors first undergo a mindset show about the ‘why’ of G4S. They then get into a workshop to work on the ‘how’ question: how to organise their cash process more efficiently – with the expertise of G4S. The experience ends in the ‘what’ area, where the equipment is first shown. A conscious routing: not the G4S products are central themes, but the conversation about topics that keep clients awake at night and how things could be improved. ‘Sales is ideally about clients experiencing your knowledge’, as G4S puts it today.

Insight selling

In the centre, insight selling takes centre stage. Cash processes are complex. Solutions do not always come across in a sales talk, a PowerPoint presentation or a website. In the G4S Innovation Centre, clients experience the expertise of G4S and the tailor-made solutions offered by G4S. This creates optimal interaction and openness between G4S and its clients or prospective clients. G4S and its clients come to new insights through experience. Paul van der Knaap, managing director of G4S Cash Solutions: ‘Our Experience Centre is a catalyst for sales, marketing and communications’.
