Each of SugarCity Events’ spaces has a story to tell. Until 1889, the sugar factory’s employees began their day in the Pakhuis, where they parked their bikes, changed, and spread out through the factory. When the renovation of the site began in 2011, this was one of the first spaces to be developed.

Despite its brick walls, concrete floors, pillars, and iron doors, the Pakhuis is SugarCity Events’ most contemporary space. At 200 square metres, it accommodates fifty people and is perfect for business presentations, workshops, and meetings, with all the state-of-the-art facilities you’d expect at such events.

The Pakhuis has its own entrance, and is connected to the Middenfabriek and Binnentuin . It can also be used as additional space for large events in other areas of SugarCity, for example as a production office.

The industrial location for your event!

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.
