Industrial event location

Event location De Loft is located in the old machine building hall of the RDM in Rotterdam. Numerous ships were built here in the past, such as the SS Rotterdam. Today the hall is known as the Innovation Dock. Several startups have found their place here. When you are in the Innovation Dock, you walk through the robot arms, 3D printers and other developments. When you enter the elevator you enter the Loft. Here you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Dokhaven.
