From sugar factory to industrial event venue

SugarCity Events was The Netherlands’ oldest sugar factory, operating from 1863 to 1992 and owned by CSM Suiker. The air was full of steam, the din of cranes and other machinery, and everyone that passed the Binnentuin could smell the sugar.

Since 2000, it has been undergoing redevelopment by the Cobraspen Group, transforming it into a unique event location. It incorporates all the advanced technology you’d expect from a modern event venue, but this has been done subtly and with respect for the factory’s character.

The unique décor is testimony to the former sugar factory’s industrial grandeur. Many memorable events have been held at the factory, so it continues to make history.


Perfect accessibility

SugarCity Events is located in Halfweg, between Amsterdam and Haarlem. The venue is easy to get to by car and public transport. Halfweg-Zwanenburg station is right outside the door, with several trains an hour from Amsterdam and Haarlem, and the former sugar factory is also easily accessible by road. It has its own parking and if you’re expecting international guests, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is only 15 minutes’ drive away!
