About the space
Our historic venue is tailormade for everything from grand symposiums to intimate dinners.We are right at the Oosterpark and in the middle of bustling Amsterdam - East; location - wise it does not get much better than this.Enjoy the sun on our beautiful terrace or come inside where references to the tropics create an always summery feel.Besides a beautiful conference location, our building also houses Tropenmuseum and De Tropen café and restaurant.Amsterdam Tropen Hotel, situated across our green courtyard, is also part of Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen. It provides a convenient and comfortable place to stay after an event or meeting.
At our venue, the meeting options are as diverse as the rooms on offer.We have an impressive reception area, a large theatre with 453 seats and several rooms suitable for smaller and bigger events.All that comes with an international vibe, the elegance of Amsterdam’ s Golden Age and state of the art facilities.We love diversity and welcome symposiums, congresses, conferences, meetings, events and parties.Regardless if you are looking for a more classical touch or want to go all out with a modern ambiance– we make it happen.Receive your guests in the Marble Hall, inspire in the Queen Máxima Hall, organise a barbecue in our enchanting courtyard or book the entire venue exclusively for up to 900 people.Whatever your angle, every speaker– and guest– is inspired.
Regardless whether you come to us for a meeting, congress, reception or ball, you always contribute to a more sustainable world.At Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, we embrace the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs).Since the visit of Kofi Annan in 2017, our building is also known as the first SDG House of the Netherlands.Together with the dozens of companies and organisations housed under our roof, the experts of KIT’ s knowledge institute work on improving health care, food security and gender equality in developing countries.The profits– including that of all conferences and events organised with us– benefit knowledge projects for sustainable development and international cooperation.A social responsible outlook that makes for even better meetings or parties.
