Event or exhibition

The Atrium City Hall foundation has been organising events and exhibitions since The Hague City Hall opened in 1995. External parties can also rent the space for an event or exhibition in the Atrium. Atrium City Hall gives you a good impression of what is going on in The Hague and beyond.


There is space in the Atrium for different ideas. For example:

  • a banquet dinner for 600 guests 
  • a reception
  • an opening
  • a lecture with theatre seating
  • a concert on 1 of the 11 floors
  • a floating fashion exposition above the municipal counters

The Atrium welcomes more than 8,000 visitors per week. For example for a visit to a municipal counter or to a presentation.

The Atrium City Hall foundation does not have any exhibition material of its own. This means you can design your exhibiton in your own way, within the established guidelines. The foundation works together with the design agencies Begin external link: Letter Z Design(External link), end external link. and Begin external link: Meta Menkveld(External link), end external link.. They have a large variety of different exhibition materials which they can tailor to suit your needs. The design agencies will be happy to give you ideas on how to make the most of your exhibition.
