2) 15th-Century Chapel for Events
The up-and-comers will tell you history is overrated. A shame for them, because they’ll miss out on this treasure. It’s a 15th-century chapel that has the decorum only age can bring. What’s more, it still has the glow of youth about it.
It’s quietly hidden between some fellow historic neighbours on the Zeedijk – as if it wasn’t iconic enough already. And it’s a logistically strong location too, being across the canal from central station.
Moreover, this versatile auditorium is suitable for hosting various events, from meeting to private dinners. The venue includes state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment to make a success of every conference. The maximum capacity ranges between 180 and 520 people, depending on the set-up.
3) Exquisite 17th-Century Multipurpose Auditorium
This venue is slightly more modern, being only from the 17th-century. And it’s even equipped with a magnificent historical Bach organ. It’s a former church with a brow-raisingly high ceiling in the form of a dome that’s worth straining your neck to admire.
It’s located in the Jordaan. Although effectively in the city centre, it is still somewhat of a residential area. The Jordaan is one of Amsterdam’s oldest and iconic areas; and what was once a slum area is now more perfect than a postcard.
Its versatility compliments how striking this venue is. Plus, it’s a glorious backdrop for product launches, award shows, private dinners and much more. Conferences are very well taken care of, with the venue having state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, high-speed WiFi and more to take care of business.
Additionally, you can request an AV technician, decorator, photographer and security guard. Designed to accommodate up to 600 people, this magnificent church can host an event of a lifetime!
