A metropolitan and innovative convention centre with the best of Rotterdam at your fingertips

Rotterdam Congress Pier is the congress venue in the dynamic heart of Rotterdam. Located directly at the foot of the famous Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam Congress Pier offers space to conferences that provoke interaction, involvement, innovation, development and connection. The conference rooms are situated close to each other, at the compact Wilhelminapier. The professional and experienced organization unites expertise in many fields and practises a genuine Rotterdam hands on approach. We make it happen!


Our unique layout combines former harbour related buildings and contemporary architecture with culture and pioneering spirit. Plenary presentations, workshops, panel discussions, networking events and gala dinners will have even more impact because content and surroundings reinforce each other. Rotterdam Congress Pier contributes to that impact by pairing each program to its ideal location. From the former Holland America Line board room to a floating pavilion and from theatre to industrial hall.

A breath of fresh air

Rotterdam Congress Pier encourages to explore the outdoors. Take your coffee to go and walk alongside the wharf on your way to the keynote speech or have your lunch on the grass and enjoy the breath-taking views on the river Maas. A conference or event at Rotterdam Congress Pier stimulates unexpected encounters and literally provides a breath of fresh air so you can start your next session with renewed focus
