The unique location of this new state-of-the-art building, in the very heart of a Unesco World Heritage City and within walking distance from all central hotels, restaurants and attractions is an absolute unique selling point. All rooms can be used in flexible formats (plug & play), in order to respond optimally to the specific wishes of organizers. The ingenious architecture ensures a smooth logistical flow, even when several events take place simultaneously. We are eagerly looking forward to the inauguration of the building at the end of 2021.
For larger conferences it is possible to collaborate with other nearby local partners, such as the Concert Hall. The building is situated nearby at 't Zand with a maximum capacity of 1289 pax.
