‘Great appreciation and encouragement’

As a global distributor of interactive sports and play equipment, we are proud to announce that Yalp has won the WTC Export Award 2016. The World Trade Centre Export Award East Netherlands is a prestigious price which is handed out on a yearly basis to a company or organization that distinguished themselves in the field of internationalization. A independent jury has reviewed Yalp on our vision, ambition, results, entrepreneurship, innovation and export strategy and decided that the Export Award 2016 should be received by Yalp. We are a Dutch oriented company from origin, but have great ambition to grow in export. Our interactive sports and play equipment can already be found in countries like China and Sweden. This award is confirming our ambition and makes us even more determined to succeed in export.

“I’m very proud of this export award, which was shown by my jump of joy during the ceremony. We have achieved a lot in export the last 4 years, but we are certainly not there yet. I see this prize as a great appreciation and encouragement to pursue our international course.” Ben Admiraal
