NBC Convention Center is back after the shooting

On September 7, 2022 it became the site of the event NBC Convention Center It was hit by a big fire. Due to smoke and water damage, 90 percent of the site was lost. The fire and its aftermath were horrific, both for the NBC executives and the team. It’s not just in our DNA to throw in the towel. And that’s why we started making new plans so quickly. We’re back, but we’re different,” says Justin Van Hooydonk, director and owner of the NBC Convention Center.

Completely different site

It’s been quiet around NBC for a while, but the team has been working hard. This is evidenced by the new plans presented at EventSummit last Thursday. The building permit has now been received and a point has been made on the horizon. On March 1, 2024, NBC will welcome its first guests to its completely renovated location. And this site looks completely different than before. For example, NBC will soon have 3 event areas, each with its own entrance, there will be a 3,000 square meter hospitality area with daylight and 22 rooms will be implemented. The event site also takes a step forward in technology. With a minimum width of 45 metres, NBC is building the largest projection decorator in the Netherlands. In addition, each room is equipped with a presentation setup that allows speakers to make a real impression.

With the construction of the new spaces, there will also be more possibilities for meetings of approximately 100 to 800 guests. But NBC also provides enough space for larger events with a capacity of up to 1,750 guests in a stage setting. The 22 different ancillary rooms can accommodate from 40 to 100 guests and can also be connected. This means that there is room for 400 guests.
