Rotterdam Ahoy expanded with international convention centre and music/theatre venue


The Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre (RACC) and the music and theatre venue RTM Stage have been completed. This expansion gives Rotterdam Ahoy thirty-five additional spaces in which to host (international) conventions and gatherings. A unique aspect of RTM Stage is that it will be used as both a music hall for concerts and as a theatre/auditorium. The completion of the building marks an important milestone for Hart van Zuid.

The municipality of Rotterdam and the consortium Ballast Nedam and Heijmans are working together on the Hart van Zuid area development project to build a new and improved city centre for Rotterdam Zuid. Ramon Janssen, director of construction for the Hart van Zuid project: “With the completion of the RACC and RTM Stage, we have reached another milestone in the area development of Hart van Zuid. We are thrilled to see these important functions added to the area.”

Alderman Bas Kurvers (Construction and Residential): “This beautiful new addition to Ahoy further improves Hart van Zuid's status as a city centre. During the current pandemic, many people cannot wait to go shopping, play sports, go to a concert or eat dinner together. All that and more will soon be possible in Hart van Zuid. The expansion of Ahoy helps the city grow as a destination for business conventions and events. When the demand for such events starts to increase once more, Rotterdam will be ready.”
