A unique venue for EuroIA 2023

Pakhuis de Zwijger

EuroIA 2023 conference will take place at the iconic Pakhuis de Zwijger, a former refrigerated warehouse on the Piet Heinkade. Pakhuis de Zwijger is an accessible, independent and safe public meeting space for everyone. A contemporary ’talking house’ with a strong online media presence that focuses on dialogue as a form of conversation. And did we mention there is a bridge running through it?
