Every conference organiser moves the world to secure a fantastic venue and we found one! This iconic building was designed by Van den Broek & Bakema and constructed in the 1960s. It provides ample of room for the many guests we’re expecting, has superb facilities, and is conveniently located in relation to the motorways and train station.

While some consider this congress centre to be a space ship—due to its shape, it’s actually a cleverly constructed building with many small and large rooms. The auditorium itself even has room for up to 1,000 people. Large parts of the building have been renovated in the past years and it’s situated on the new green university campus. We are grateful to the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) for providing this awesome location.

The Aula Congress centre is the multi-functional events centre of the Technical University Delft. The combination of a Technical University, a pleasant old town, good accessibility and perfect equipment, makes the Aula Congress centre an outstanding location for congresses and other scientific or cultural meetings.
