What is the maximum period for exhibitions in the Atrium?

Exhibitions can only be set up in the Atrium for a maximum period of four weeks, including building up and breaking down. For setting up an exhibition, Atrium City Hall will take into account the planning and options of the Atrium and seek the required space and size of the exhibition. The Atrium is divided into 3 parts for exhibitions, the A-B & C part. There is no difference in rental costs per part. In consultation with Atrium City Hall, the various options will be discussed with you and we will determine which period and part best suit your exhibition, so that you can get the most out of your exhibition.

What is taken into account when submitting an application?

Each applicant must provide the Atrium City Hall offer with a quotation and then fully and correctly inform the nature, content, quality, purpose and background of the activity to be held in the Atrium The Hague and the persons and organizations involved by completing all fields and submitting the application form.
