A new business club for Amsterdam ArenA
September 17, 2013
The Amsterdam ArenA, as you may know, is home to the renowned football club Ajax Amsterdam. However, the building offers a lot more than just football. The stadium itself is the stage for many dance events and concerts by national and international top artists. The main building has a range of rooms available for large and small events and meetings.
Recently, the main building was given a complete facelift and an additional 3,000m² of lettable space became available. Renamed 'ArenA Business Club' the venue is as versatile as it is famous. A special twist is the fact that you are meeting in 'the home of Ajax'. The possibilities are virtually limitless, with three large halls, ten small rooms and four lobbies, all suitable for events, conferences, seminars and even exhibitions. The smallest rooms are suitable for meetings with just a few guests, and the rooms combined offer space for up to 800 guests.
The new rooms in the ArenA Business Club are named after cities in which Ajax achieved its major European successes. These names include Amsterdam '72, Vienna '95, and Athens '87. In the lobbies you will find unique, wall-sized football-related artworks by Marijntje Teeuwen.
To reduce the energy consumption of the main building, the ArenA implemented sustainable techniques such as 'city heating' and 'city cooling'. This resulted in a reduction in CO² emissions of 50% for heating and 75% for cooling the building.
