Gala night for 600 to 1200 persons

The Beurs van Berlage has years of experience in arranging gala nights at a high level. Each year, we welcome national and international guests for an unforgettable experience in this unique location in Amsterdam. When clients want to organise a gala night for between 600 and 1200 persons, they opt for the Beurs van Berlage for the following reasons:

  • Central location in the heart of Amsterdam
  • Having dinner in the magical location of the wedding of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.
  • Historic and architectural features of the building
  • The largest dining room in Amsterdam city centre
  • A five-minute walk from Amsterdam Central Station and various car parks
  • Complete all-in-one packages

Gala location

The Grote Zaal was originally built as a venue for the commodity exchange. Later, this room accommodated the insurance exchange, among other things. The clock, bell and sculpture of Mercury are just some examples of the many details that point at the old trading days.

The Grote Zaal can be accessed directly from the main entrance. The grandeur of this room offers plenty of opportunities to give your guests an unforgettable experience.

Dinner Maison van den Boer

For its dinners, the Beurs van Berlage has an exclusive contract with Maison van den Boer catering company. Maison van den Boer was selected on the basis of a shared high ambition in the fields of quality, hospitality and service.

It has composed three different three-course meals and two dinner buffets for the Beurs van Berlage, inspired by the story and history of the Beurs van Berlage. We can of course also arrange customised dinner packages that are in line with your objective or theme.

Facilities for gala nights

To guarantee the highest quality and the latest technologies, Beurs van Berlage uses preferred lighting and audiovisual suppliers. The basic equipment of a hall is often included in your package price and any extras you need for the perfect gala night can be connected to the existing system. 

Hotel service

Beurs van Berlage Hotelservice has taken out contracts with all nearby hotels. This means we can offer you the lowest rates (it will not be possible to find lower rates elsewhere) and our conditions, such as those for cancellation, are also better.

When you book rooms for larger groups, you can opt to have your guests book individual rooms via an online booking system, offering the best conditions right away. Your organisation does not run any risk, as you do not have to sign any hotel contracts.
