The Amsterdam Dinner (Het Amsterdam Diner) was founded 30 years ago (1992) when a small group of people from leading luxury hotels and restaurants, decided to host a dinner on Dam Square to make a difference. The Amsterdam Dinner is a unique platform celebrating life and creating positive change.

Working towards a world where everyone has the right to be who they are, to love who they want, and to have access to life-saving treatment no matter where they live. Each year the Amsterdam Diner brings together a broad coalition, including members of the Dutch royal family, business leaders, philanthropists, politicians, celebrities, researchers, and the community to reaffirm the commitment to an AIDS-free world.
We were celebrating freedom with the arts and fashion at the core of the event. Discrimination, inequality, and injustice must be tackled to reach the dream of an AIDS-free world. Everyone has the right to live and love with dignity.
The Amsterdam Diner has three goals for real impact:
Raising money to support excellent, innovative, and life-saving projects around the world tackling the core drivers of the HIV epidemic.
Raising Awareness to generate necessary conversations by working on reaching new audiences and channels in both digital and real-life formats.
Making connections to bring diverse and inspiring people together to make tangible contributions and create positive change.
