Flexibility, creativity and a personal approach
Constructed in 1959, the former school for aircraft engineering ‘Anthony Fokker School’ has been completely redeveloped since 2009 into a state of the art event venue.
Ideally located just on the outskirts of The Hague, the political capital of the Netherlands and home to several international institutions, the city is at the industrial and business heart of the country; the so-called Randstad.
The venue is very easy to access, Schiphol Airport (35 minutes) as well as Rotterdam The Hague Airport (15 minutes) are close by. It offers excellent parking options with direct connections onto highways to Utrecht, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
The building has a characteristic and industrial feel with a spacious and transparent lay out, which is emphasized by the abundance of daylight.
