Amsterdam’s Top Convention Venues With Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Amsterdam may be known for its picturesque canals, historic architecture and vibrant culture. Still, the Dutch capital is more than just a tourist destination - it's also a thriving hub for conferences and events, with a variety of venues to suit every need.

The weather here often plays in favour of venues with both indoor and outdoor spaces, making it an ideal destination for conferences and meetings. The city's temperate maritime climate means that outdoor spaces can be comfortably used even in the cooler months, while in the warmer months, attendees can enjoy the sun and fresh air during breaks.

These venues are a hit in the conference scene because they offer the best of both worlds. Indoor spaces provide the technology and comfort needed for presentations and workshops, while outdoor spaces offer fresh air and a sunny spot for networking and socialising.

Ready to take this versatility to the next level? Let’s explore Amsterdam’s top convention venues, which offer both indoor and outdoor spaces.
