about Ivo Bakker

Ivo 2014 neutraal

Ivo’s mission is to design safe event structures that create high quality event experiences.
He believes that a key building block in this process is good communication between organizations, creators, suppliers and governments.

He enables this by sharing his knowledge about creative solutions, technical capabilities and applicable regulations and by forging bridges between the different interests of the involved parties.

Ivo brings over 16 years of professional experience in designing and realizing temporary and demountable structures for events and business purposes.
After starting work as an R&D engineer in 1997 he became designer of temporary structures with key market player De Boer Structures. He progressed to the role of sales engineer and led the production of special (event) structures as Manager of De Boer’s Technical Support Group. These days Ivo continues work in this exciting business as an independent consultant together with his dedicated team of structural engineers and CAD designers. He is also an advisor of the Dutch Government with regards to event regulations, gives presentations to (government) engineers and takes part in discussion platforms about safety and design of temporary structures worldwide.
