When the sugar factory was in operation, this is where the beets were washed at the start of the refining process. Today, at 160 square metres, it’s suitable mainly for smaller meetings, or as a VIP or breakout room, temporary kitchen, or workshop area for events in the adjoining The Bietenwasruimte connects to the Binnenstraat, which in turn links to all areas of our industrial event location.

The industrial location for your event!
cases - events in the Bietenwasruimte

SugarCity Events was the Netherlands’ oldest sugar factory, operating from 1863 to 1992 and owned by CSM Suiker. The air was full of steam, the din of cranes and other machinery, and the smell of sugarbeet.

Since 2002, it has been undergoing redevelopment by the Cobraspen Group, transforming it into a unique event location while keeping the factory itself fully intact. It incorporates all the advanced technology you’d expect from a modern event venue, but this has been done subtly and with respect for the factory’s character.

The unique décor is testimony to the former sugar factory’s industrial grandeur, and it is still making history with many memorable events.
