Our vision for the future

Our goal is clear: when the construction of our new building is complete and the transformation of the organization is complete, we want to be the most sustainable conference and events venue in Europe. We have a genuine drive to make our organization a forerunner in society and in the events industry.
We believe in a world where we care for and respect each other and our environment. Where the impact on the earth is reduced by reusing raw materials, managing and reducing waste and generating our own green energy. Where we walk, and travel by bike and train. Where we are aware of our differences and embrace them, without leaving anyone behind. We believe in a world that is bigger than our venue. With the 2.3 million guests we welcome each year, we can make a positive impact on our environment, our surroundings and the people we meet.
There is much to be gained in the field of sustainability; that is why we would like to contribute to solutions to achieve that sustainability. This page shows you how we do this in practice.
