Ambassador Moniek Tromp


Beurs van Berlage

The Beurs van Berlage is a hotspot that cannot be missed during your visit to Amsterdam. It is the vibrant meeting point in the heart of the city. One thing is certain, there is always something to do in the unique historical building! In the months of July and August, for example, we have "Zomer in de Beurs" - a summer programme with a varied line-up; from children's shows to classical music, from guided tours through the Beurs to dining in the Grote Zaal.

Our guests, being mostly used to crowded and smaller venues, were all, without exception, impressed with the great atmosphere. The building provides a perfect place for large lectures and poster sessions, informal smaller meetings in parallel, all around a central foyer area, where all can meet easily.  The halls are flexible and can be set up from formal theatre style to gala dinner and everything in between and any combination of rooms/halls can be accommodated.
