Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen is a unique venue for all your conferences and events. What makes our location so special? The historical building with a variety of elegant rooms, the personal contact with our clients and last but not least, by organising an event in our venue you contribute to a more sustainable world.

We are a part of the KIT Royal Tropical Institute: an independent centre of expertise, education and intercultural cooperation, dedicated to sustainable development. Our profits go towards benefiting the knowledge institute. Are you organising an event with us? Not only are you assured a memorable day in a fabulous location, you are taking responsibility with regards to social entrepreneurship.

Classic or ultramodern — we love diversity. Our colourful conference centre is full of Amsterdam’s history and has a delightful contemporary character and large conference facilities. Receive your guests in one of our rooms or book the entire KIT exclusively for yourself.
