Time after time and in the middle of the characteristic historical centre of Amsterdam.

The government’s reporting on the prohibition of certain gatherings of more than 30 people, or a notification requirement for other gatherings of more than 30 people, raises questions about what this means for events in the Beurs van Berlage.

Events in the Beurs van Berlage

Earlier this week, we informed you that we expected to receive an exemption from the maximum group size of 30 people per room, announced in the new measures. We based this expectation on the exception for conferences and meetings referred to in an earlier emergency ordinance of the Amsterdam-Amstelland Safety Region. In addition, the mayor of Amsterdam indicated in her press conference last Monday that he would formulate a standard for exemptions for “buildings of great importance" in the coming days, whereby criteria regarding health would be leading.

Unfortunately, the Amsterdam-Amstelland Safety Region has chosen to focus the exemptions primarily on concert halls and theatres, which means that for (conference) venues such as the Beurs van Berlage, no exception will be made to the maximum number of visitors. This additional restriction of a maximum of 30 people per room is in effect until October 19th, 2020. The Board of the Security Region has indicated that it will later consider whether, until that time, more institutions can qualify for an exemption.
