On Tuesday evening, 7 June, from 19:00 – 00:00 hrs, the conference dinner is organized in the city center of Rotterdam at the ‘Hulstkamp Gebouw’.
Back ground information about the 'Hulstkamp Gebouw':
Authentic and grand from the outside, contemporary and stylish inside. The building is proudly situated on the Noordereiland and it nostalgic forms are unique in the futuristic skyline of Rotterdam. The city centre of Rotterdam has few historic buildings in their original state. The Hulstkamp Gebouw, one of the 518 national monuments of the city, has survived the history of Rotterdam.
Rotterdam knows the Hulstkamp Gebouw (1892) from their grandfather's stories as a proud landmark on the Noordereiland, which lays in the river Maas. The building has served as jenever (gin) distillery and is one of the few buildings in this modern city that has passed the test of time. Today, it is known as a versatile and authentic event location, situated on the banks of the Maas River near the famous Erasmus Bridge.
Recently the monument has had a make-over. The 'new' Hulstkamp Gebouw is the result of an intensive design process. Pure design, honest materials and personality are key words in it. Strong, contemporary yet stylish with respect for history. The industrial halls the ‘Branderij’ and ‘Stokerij’ are completely stripped and resorted in old glory and given a beautiful oak floor. The ‘Rotterdamzaal’ and ‘Amsterdamzaal’ are both decorated with ultra modern bars, white & black lounge furniture and taupe-colored tapestry. The Wintertuin has a more than one impressive eye catchers; the impressive height and glass roof are only a two of them.
