On the one hand, the sturdy steel constructions from the time when factory engines from Stork and Kromhout were running, and on the other, a ceiling of 15 meters high with impressive skylights. These characteristics make the more than 3,500 m2 event location the Kromhouthal on the IJ in Amsterdam a unique multifunctional location for corporate, commercial and cultural events.


Since 2009, when Woningstichting Eigen Haard bought the site with the intention of giving the entire area a boost, the character of the area around De Kromhouthal has changed. The site has been christened the Overkant and should therefore become the new creative hotspot of Amsterdam.

Since then, Amsterdam North has also developed strongly as a vibrant creative and cultural center of Amsterdam. The Kromhouthal has played a role in the development of the district, because thanks to many investments, the Kromhouthal has slowly but surely become a household name in Amsterdam. And so the once busy industrial strip along the IJ has slowly but surely grown into the bustling event strip it is today.

This large event location on the IJ has various spaces that can serve as sub rooms during your event. In addition to sub rooms, you can also use the Keuken, Haven and Binnenplein.

The Kromhouthal is an event location on the IJ in Amsterdam North. After long use as a factory hall, the impressive industrial location of more than 5000 m2 was transformed into an event location in 2012. You want to reach as many people as possible with a conference. Due to the large floor area of ​​De Kromhouthal, our location is very suitable for large conferences (150 to 1300 guests) that require a large full space. The location is wheelchair accessible and there are lighting and blackout options and of course also WiFi. The central hall can be divided into two areas for catering and the entire hall. In addition, our sub areas provide sufficient break-out opportunities and the industrial theme creates impact for your message. Trade shows work best when stands have the space. The Kromhouthal has an elongated shape with a large floor area and is therefore perfect for trade fairs. Placing stands on both sides of the hall, or just randomly mixed together, creates a street in a building, as it were. There is sufficient space to create walking routes and there are three-phase power connections scattered throughout the hall to supply the stands with power.

The Kromhouthal, the base for creative Amsterdam, is located right on the IJ in Amsterdam North. The location is easily accessible by car and public transport, and is about fifteen minutes by bike from Central Station. In addition, this location is a few minutes by car from the A10 and the IJ tunnel.
