Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre

A brand new Convention Centre opens in 2020


Whether you are organising a small or large convention, a small plenary meeting or a large conference (2,000 to 12,000 people), we look forward to hosting your event. 

Rotterdam Ahoy is expanding. In 2020, the brand new Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre (RACC) will open - home to one of the largest ports in the world. A mediagenic metropolis with a skyline that keeps growing.

The city is easily reached from it's own airport or by highspeedtrain from Amsterdam Schiphol which takes only 25 minutes.

Rotterdam’s 'spearheads’

Rotterdam has a number of key economic segments: Medical & Life Sciences, Food, Transport & Logistics, Maritime and Cleantech. Rotterdam’s city government has set up a special fund for association conferences that align with these 'spearheads’ - to offer a financial helping hand to the event organisers.

Rotterdam, an ideal conference city

World-renowned institutions like Erasmus MC and Erasmus University Rotterdam, the city’s port, its strong accessibility and compact structure and its competitive international price-quality ratio: these are all solid arguments for conference organisers to hold their event in Rotterdam. And the local conference sector is further strengthened by Rotterdam’s increased hotel and conference capacity.
