So that you can enjoy your reunion without worrying about how much you drink or how late you stay, we don't recommend driving to the MBA reunion.

We have made sure that it's easy to access the whole event by public transport, and transportation is provided between all the main locations and central Rotterdam for our all-day Friday and Saturday guests. The main location is walking distance from Rotterdam Centraal station, and you can access everything from there.

Getting to the Van Nelle Fabriek

Organised bus transportation

We will provide a free bus from Rotterdam Centraal Station and Mainport Hotel at 09:15. The pick-up point from Rotterdam Centraal is on the south side, Stationsplein. The pick-up point for Mainport hotel is outside the main gate. The shuttle service will return you to the station and Mainport at the end of the event.

By public transport

The Van Nelle Fabriek can be reached by public transport: take bus 38 from Rotterdam Centraal Station to Station Schiedam Centrum. Get off at “Beukelsbrug” (Horvathweg). Go down the steps, turn left underneath the railway viaduct, and cross the road towards the entrance of Van Nelle Fabriek. 


Follow the P signs or the instructions of our car park attendants. Please ask for a complementary parking ticket at the Leadership Summit reception and registration desk to exit without charge.

Getting to Mainport

Since most of the activities on Saturday will be taking place at the Mainport hotel (the event will start and end at Mainport), kindly follow the advice below on how to get there:
