Event locations

The World Food Center is the food meeting place in the Netherlands. It is possible to hold seminars, congresses, festivals or smaller meetings at various places on the site. You can, for example, use professional indoor event locations or opt for an 'unplugged' experience in the open air.

The Mauritskazerne - Attractive industrial conference location for your events

The Mauritskazerne was built between 1904 and 1906 in a neo-Renaissance style. The stately entrance, high ceilings and large arched windows give this location a unique appearance. The industrial look is enhanced by the interior of mainly recycled materials. The barracks impress, you can receive groups of up to 600 guests in style. Separated in smaller groups? We have 12 flexibly usable subspaces available for this.

The location not only has an inspiring past, but also a story for the future. What you eat and drink comes from farmers, bakers and other food producers from the region. Tasty, honest, sustainable and futureproof. View all options in the Mauritskazerne.

Outdoor possibilities - let nature connect

The Veluwe literally enters the World Food Center! The beautiful green environment is therefore a frequently used location for successful food events such as FoodUnplugged, Störrig and Eating on Rolletjes.  There are several outdoor locations on the WFC site where you can hold your events:

The rush course
For small-scale sustainable events (up to 750 people), the storm track is a unique place, where the old storm track elements are still in the woodland landscape.

The Appèlplaats
The old appeal place between the barracks is a nice place to organize small events in view of the barracks.

The Friso Park
For the barracks in the Friso Park a nice location is available to organize events in view of the barracks. This site is suitable for the somewhat larger events.
