Amsterdam is quickly emerging as the leader in business facilities as its convenient location and clean, stunning surroundings make it ideal for companies and corporations to hold meetings and conferences.

There are many reasons why Amsterdam is becoming so popular for networking events and annual meet ups and just a few include:

The Price

Hiring a venue in Amsterdam is much cheaper than in our capital city. Along with these reduced overheads the travelling fares are also low. The British can travel o Amsterdam for less than £50 whereas anyone from Europe can fly to the city for the same amount.

The Location

The location of Amsterdam is the perfect compromise for European businesses and some global companies select it as a corporate destination too. It is easily accessible by boat, plane or car and has wonderful transport links around the entire city.

The Culture

Amsterdam is now a melting pot of cultures as it is home to a diverse mix of races from all over the world. This makes it a comfortable place to hold a meeting as it puts everyone at ease and makes them feel as if they are at home.

The Clean Air

London has a reputation in the US as being full of smog and pollution; it is also known for its dreary weather and dull days. This is why many British companies choose Amsterdam to meet their clients as it is known for its fresh air and clean streets.

The Accommodation

Amsterdam hotel owners are used to catering for companies and business people and have developed an unrivalled reputation for their customer care. There are many hotels that surround the square and the city which cater to all needs from informal to luxury spa.

Family Friendly

When travelling to Amsterdam on business many professionals think nothing of taking their families with them. There is so much to see and do that children and partners can enjoy a relaxed holiday as the other half works. This isn’t so possible in other European cities, but Amsterdam caters for families as well as it caters for corporations. It’s also a safe place to play with many of the streets pedestrianized.

The Space

London space is always limited whereas Amsterdam can cater for meetings and conferences holding 3000 people or more.

The Little Extras

When you choose to hold a meeting in Amsterdam you will be offered numerous choices. Unlike other cities you will not just be offered a space to use but also unique events that will make the meet up memorable, guided tours of the local area, help with accommodation and a thorough site inspection to make sure the venue is apt for purpose.

The people of Amsterdam do truly care about your meeting and conference being a success as they want you to return bringing them your business with long term leads bookings in the future.
