The Grote Zaal, which translates as the Grand Hall, is not only the largest hall of the Beurs van Berlage, but also that of entire city centre of Amsterdam. The room is ideal for organizing meetings such as conferences, dinners, symposia, product presentations, exclusive fairs or fantastic parties. The Grand hall was used for the royal wedding of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.
In 1903, in the large commodity exchange hall (now called Grote Zaal) trade in products such as pepper, coffee, cocoa, sugar and oil took place. From five to nine, when the 'Beursbengel' sounded to open the stock exchange, the products could be bought and sold. Until half past three, when the bell rang again to close the trading day. At that time, the the price of the products was established and the trading day officially ended.
Amsterdam is surprisingly easy to reach. Did you know, for example, that the city center can be reached fifteen minutes from Schiphol Airport? There is no strict visa requirement and public transport works smoothly, both towards and from city. The extensive network of high-speed trains also provides rapid connections to, among other places, the United Kingdom, Belgium, France and Germany. Amsterdam is a city with character and class. The place where everyone wants to be!
