About RDM Rotterdam - Congrescentrum
RDM refers to the Dutch name for Rotterdam s most famous shipbuilding dry docks and yards where cruise liners, such as the ss Rotterdam, used to be built for the Holland-America Line. Colleges, research institutes and companies now work together on technical innovations here. The RDM Campus site s listed industrial buildings have been renovated and are also used as venues for events and gatherings. The ten available spaces have been thoroughly renovated but still retain the feel of bygone days thanks to their period features including leaded windows, panelling, marble and chandeliers.
The rooms are suitable for gatherings of 10 to 300 people and include free WiFi. The largest room has a ceiling height of three metres and can hold 170 people when set up as a theatre and 75 for a dining event. It can be arranged as required and there are no pillars in the space. For special occasions it is sometimes possible to move to a space elsewhere on the site which can accommodate 300 people when set up as a theatre and 200 as a dining venue.
The RDM Campus is just beyond the Waalhaven harbour right in the heart of Rotterdam s old port district near the village of Heijplaat. The quickest way to reach the RDM Campus site from Rotterdam city centre is to take the Aqualiner boat which sails from the Erasmus Bridge.
