What happens after I have submitted my application?

After receiving a confirmation and possibly a personal consultation with one of the two representatives of Atrium City Hall about the activity to be held, an offer will be sent to serve as an agreement. Only after the receipt of a signed agreement, the option for the activity is placed in the agenda. The foundation name on the agreement must at all times be registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. As soon as the offer is signed and returned within 30 working days, unless stated otherwise on the offer, the option will be converted into a definitive reservation.
