In memoriam of Erik Henny

Erik Peter Henny
1948 – 2022

We are saddened to hear of the unexpected death of long-standing WYSE Travel Confederation member, Erik Henny, whilst on holiday with his family.

Those of you who were members of FIYTO and regulars at WYSTC will know that Erik and his brother Ewout are owners of the infamous and iconic Hans Brinker Hostel in Amsterdam.

The hostel has, for many years, been styled as ‘the worst hotel in the world’ and we have seen lots of clever iterations of this through the Brinker’s advertising campaigns and WYSTC booths made entirely of lost property.

In recent years, Erik has attended WYSTC, ITB and the STAY WYSE conference in a social capacity and has been behind the many litres of Heineken donated by Hans Brinker and dispensed to delegates.

Erik’s friendly and welcoming face will be missed by all at WYSE Travel Confederation events, and we are sure you all join us in sending his wife Anja, son Erik, daughter Marie Louise, son-in-law Matijn, granddaughter Milou and brother Ewout our condolences at this sad time.
