NAI Newsletter August 2017


As from 24 August 2017, the secretariat of the Netherlands Arbitration Institute will be based at a different location in Rotterdam! From that date, the NAI will be riding high on the 34th floor of the ‘Delftse Poort’, right next to Rotterdam CS station.

Our new office address is:
Weena 505

Telephone number, P.O. Box and email address remain unchanged.

A boardroom is available on the NAI secretariat’s floor, suitable for hearings for up to 12 people (arbitrator, secretary and 5 people on either side). The room is furnished with an LCD screen for presentations and video conferencing, audio conferencing, flip charts and of course sufficient connections for laptops, etc. Coffee, tea, water and other beverages are provided in the boardroom. A cold lunch can be arranged if desired (EUR 12 per person). The room is available during office hours, and afterwards upon request. The room hire charge is EUR 325 per day (excl. VAT). Arbitrators may also reserve the boardroom as a break-out room or for consultation in chambers.

Should you wish to hire one or more additional or larger rooms, the NAI secretariat can reserve these for you on the 3rd floor of the ‘Delftse Poort’, where there are various meeting rooms to hire for EUR 150 per room for the whole day. In that case, the charges for tea, coffee, water and other beverages are EUR 10 per person, and a cold lunch costs EUR 12 per person. Naturally, you are free to lunch in one of the restaurants in the vicinity instead, or to sample the buffet in Delftse Poort’s food court. An overview of all options will shortly appear on the NAI website. The NAI secretariat would be pleased to assist you in making your choice.

Please bear in mind that the NAI secretariat will have limited availability on Thursday, 24 August in connection with the move. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
