The Beurs van Berlage exudes history and character. In 1903 it was already a bustling trading place and today it is a “one in a million" conference location in the warm heart of Amsterdam.

Our organisation

The Beurs van Berlage is a national monument located in the historic centre of Amsterdam. With a total area of ​​16,000 m2. Where a wide spectrum of different companies hold offices, the most desirable and prestigious congresses, events and exhibitions are organized, two restaurants are located, Meet Berlage facilitates small meetings and there are even two escape rooms, a bicycle shed and a Tony’s Chocolonely super store: the Beurs van Berlage has been the hotspot since 1903 and the Beurs van Berlage is at the top of the market.

In the 1980s, the building already had a social function with concerts, events and exhibitions. The costs for major foundation repair and lagging rents forced the owner to sell Beurs van Berlage in 2008. Four public and private parties bought the real estate and took over the full exploitation. Since 2008, the Beurs van Berlage has been a limited partnership with four equal shareholders: the municipality of Amsterdam, De Key, Amvest and BPD.

Collaborations and certificates

Our ambassadors

Congresses promote knowledge transfer and knowledge development within a certain field, at both national and international level. By attending a conference, developments and breakthroughs can be presented, new products can be launched and new ideas can be created that have an impact on specific areas of expertise. The Beurs van Berlage considers this important and therefore has a strong focus on international scientific conferences.

We would like to have as many of these conferences as possible take place at our location. In addition, we brought in the help of scientists, professors and doctors who have attended or organised a congress in the Beurs van Berlage. They are happy to share their experience with potential or future conference organisers who are thinking of bringing a conference in their field to Amsterdam. The ambassadors actively use their network to generate more conferences that fit well in the Beurs van Berlage.

De Beurs van Berlage is located in the centre of Amsterdam on Damrak, Oude Brugsteeg and Beursstraat, directly opposite the central station, a short distance from highways and Schiphol Airport. The Beurs van Berlage is extremely easy to reach, both by public transport and by private transport. The Central Station is a stone’s throw away.

In the vicinity of the Beurs there are a number of large parking garages such as Parking Centrum Oosterdok and IJDock car park. The nearest parking garage is that of the Bijenkorf, but it is the least easy to reach by car due to long-lasting traffic jams in the city center and the least attractive price-wise. That is why we strongly recommend using Parking Centrum Oosterdok or IJDock car park.

Are you coming to Amsterdam with an electric car? Oosterdok has 60 charging points, IJDock car park has 12 charging points.

Due to the many activities in the city center, the approach routes to the Beurs van Berlage are constantly changing. We advise you to have a look on the City of Amsterdam website to check out the latest developments, if you decide to come to the Beurs by car.

In case you prefer a taxi, please let us know, we have a taxi partnership with Taxicentrale Amsterdam (TCA) so we can offer you the best rates and the best rides.
