Rotterdam is the future ... Now! According to Lonely Planet, Rotterdam has the allure of a metropolis with its distinctive architecture, attention to art and culture, and our home port is shining brightly at the top of the list of European cities with excellent accessibility for all visitors, including business and private tourists alike. Nobody will be surprised to learn that our city is also a strong player in the international conference market. See for more information.

Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre 2020

Rotterdam Ahoy is expanding and the doors to the new Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre (RACC) will be opening for the first time in 2020. This international convention centre will have 35 rooms and a theatre / auditorium with 2,750 seats. When the seats are removed the hall will be able to accommodate 7,000 standing places. The convention centre is integrated into the existing structure of Ahoy. The flexibility of the auditorium allows for a conference to be held there during the day and then also host a major theatre production or concert on the stage that same evening.
