2007 DCE Championships Largest Ever
The DCE Championships 2007, that took place in Rotterdam last week, was the biggest ever edition in terms of visitor numbers. There were 2400 visitors to the event.

"Although we cannot say for sure, we believe this press coverage led to increased interest from the locals", says PR Manager Dennis Naaktgeboren of Drum Corps Europe.
