A. Aboutaleb, Mayor of Rotterdam:
Rotterdam is a dynamic metropolis, the ‘Gateway to Europe’. A city that is constantly reinventing itself. But above all, Rotterdam is a city you have to experience for yourself.
The story of the city, the bombardment and reconstruction, and the drive to innovate that locals still use today to shape their city all make Rotterdam a fascinating place to visit. Everything seems possible here, and there’s so much left to explore. Is Rotterdam a must-see city? Absolutely! More information about the city.
The EBOT Spring Meeting 2019 will be in the NHOW Rotterdam hotel.

And don’t worry if all these creative sparks get you a bit tired; we’ve got very comfy beds too!
Visitors to the museum are often astonished by the wealth and variety of the collection. The scope and diversity are thanks to 1700 private collectors who have gifted no fewer than 50,000 objects in almost 170 years.
The museum contains old master paintings and sculpture, modern and contemporary art, decorative arts, pre-industrial household objects and industrial design. The collections of prints and drawings, early Netherlandish painting, Impressionism and Surrealism are among the best in the world.
