It promised to be a beautiful fall for the NBC Convention Center. The Nieuwegein family business was more than ready for the start of the event season. Until disaster struck at the last minute. On Wednesday, September 7, 2022, the NBC was hit by a major fire. As a result, the location has largely been lost.
At around 2:30 PM, a fire broke out on the roof of the Event Hall. All guests and employees present were brought to safety within a very short time. After 12 hours of extinguishing the fire, the fire brigade gave the signal to master the fire at 02:40. Although the optical damage on the outside of the location appears to be minor, the damage on the inside is many times greater.
All spaces, technical equipment and materials have been lost. That is why the NBC Congress Center is forced to close its doors until September 1, 2023. All meetings planned at the NBC until September 1, 2023 cannot take place as a result.
For the conference and event location, the coming period will be dominated by reconstruction, but also helping clients find alternative locations. Fortunately, sitting still is not in the DNA of the family business and the work is already in full swing. Despite this setback, the NBC team faces the future with confidence.
