A UNIQUE LOCATION

Ships from all over the world pass by the Conference Fort. IJmuiden is running at full speed and the pier of Wijk aan Zee shines in the sun. The Conference Fort is a workplace with a view. And that view was also used in the past.


The Conference Fort is located on Forteiland, which is part of 'De Stelling van Amsterdam', which was built around 1885 to defend the capital. Our Conference Fort is the largest fortress in the entire position. Almost huge.

The dome room with murals, the large bunkers and the underground labyrinth tell the history of the fort. On every piece of the 4-hectare island, you can feel the excitement and adventure of the past. But also the peace of mind to fully concentrate because you are completely dependent on yourself. Where the troops first slept, you can present your annual report or shape your business plan.

ALSO A BREAK

A full day of meetings is tough. Even at a special location. That is why the Conference Fort also offers activities to break the day. We have activities of half an hour, but also full afternoon programs. You decide whether you want a quick refresh or a longer workout. We recommend that you at least insert one break. This keeps the whole group sharp and fresh. You will not find these breakout sessions anywhere else.

THE BOAT TRIP

The adventure already starts during the crossing with De Fortwachter or the Queen Emma cruise boat to the island. Set foot in 10 minutes. And you are in a completely different world where the (meeting) adventure can begin.

Conference Fort Program

A day at the Conference Fort.

Every meeting, brainstorming or conference at the Conference Fort is different. The agenda differs and so do the wishes and the size of the group. How a day of meetings on the Fort Island goes is up to you. The program is flexible and is put together in consultation. The to-do list of the day can be:

09:00
Boat trip to the Fort

The first adventure begins! You board in IJmuiden to arrive on Fort eiland 10 minutes later.

09:30
Reception on Fort Island

We welcome you with all our PBN impetus with good coffee, tea and some goodies.

10:00
Meeting

You put your heads together in one of our historic halls.

12:30
Lunch

A good diet is important! With a full stomach it works well. Seasonal and fresh!

13:30
Meeting

Continue your meeting, working towards the conclusion, the report or the presentation.

15:30
Active break

Time for a break. You worked hard. Now let the blood flow and let the head work differently.

16:30
Drinks and closing

Whether you end the day together with a drink, wine tasting or dinner, it is all possible on Fort Island.

17:30
Return trip to the mainland

Everything comes to an end, including this constructive, educational and adventurous day. We sail back to shore

Overnight stay?

Don't drive anymore? And end the day cum laude? Then you can spend the night in the port of IJmuiden, for example in the Apollo Hotel IJmuiden
