The venue for the International Softwood Conference is the Marriott Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel. This five-star establishment is just a short walk from the Central Station and situated right at the historic centre of this charming city.

The Conference itself takes place in the adjoining historic Koepelkerk, a 17th century church now transformed into a sought-after, state-of-the-art meeting and social space. It can be accessed direct from the Renaissance.
