The Schiecentrale

Sint-Jobsweg 116, 3024 EA Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Once a power plant that supplied the port of Rotterdam with electricity, the Schiecentrale is now an outstanding multi-functional venue that brings together the community for any occasion. 

The monumental Turbine Hall is the largest space in the Schicentrale and features original elements of the old power plant along with the Engine Room and the Switch Room. We look forward to hosting World Workplace Europe in this beautiful and unique space.
