Specialist in international scientific conferences

With 35 international conferences a year the Beurs van Berlage has been your trusted location for international scientific conferences in Amsterdam to 1300 people for years. The central location of this monumental building in Amsterdam offers the conference visitor the ultimate Amsterdam experience. Our unique building with state of the art facilities is the formula for a successful conference.

Congresses promote knowledge transfer and knowledge development within a specific field, both at national and international level. We have knowledge of the social codes for medical conferences. By attending a conference, developments and breakthroughs can be presented, new products are launched and new ideas emerge that have an impact on specific disciplines.

From the bidding process we can support you optimally, to increase the chance that your congress will take place in Amsterdam. Partly due to our intensive cooperation with Amsterdam Marketing.

For example; 

  • we can help you get in touch with scientists in different fields,
  • help with the creation of a slick bid book,
  • advise on the choice of a PCO and help get support from the municipality of Amsterdam.

With the Beurs van Berlage you make an unforgettable impression as a host for the Netherlands. 

Testimonial ISC2 EMEA

"The (ISC)² Secure Summit Benelux was a great opportunity to meet hundreds of other security professionals and to attend interesting deep dive workshops and plenary presentations with roundtables and panels. The event provided opportunities for member engagement by developing professional knowledge through educational agendas that are drawn from the (ISC)² membership, and the support of our Chapter leaders and advisory councils, who help us reach the influential and government speakers that drive priorities in security. We won't forget the venue, the former Amsterdam Stock Exchange, an astonishing place for an exceptional event! Members of the Beurs van Berlage team always went the extra mile – nothing was ever too much! - and it is this sort of customer service which has  been positively reflected in the delegate feedback received.”

By Tisun Rustem, Head of Manager, (ISC)² EMEA
