Conference Center in Groningen

Original and relaxed meetings

Not far from the city of Groningen is located an area where time seems to stand still: the National Landscape Middag-Humsterland. In the middel of this beautiful landscape with meadows, ancient dikes, beautiful farms, picturesque villages and churches  a winding road leads you to an ideal place for an inspiring meetings, workshops or teambuilding. It is the Hayema ​​Heerd, Oldehove.
Here you will find a different atmosphere: relaxing, energetic, provocative. This is the place to “get everyone on the same side?” This conference center  is certainly a bit unusual. The atmosphere is authentic, tough and strong by the huge roof trusses, beams and thatched roof.
A meeting in the farm has everything you could wish for: peace, creativity, culture, romance, tranquility and unobstructed views over the beautiful countryside. Personal attention, great coffee and always a homemade delicacy, make sure that you quickly feel at home.;
For each meeting wish there is a suitable space and appropriate arrangement. The conference center is suitable for both small and larger groups (up to 75 people).
You can compose your meeting as you suits; a half day, full day, or even a multi-day stay incl. overnight stays in the unique Straw hotel.
The entire property is also suitable to be divided into several groups.

“Heel erg bedankt voor de goede zorgen vorige week! Ik kreeg een lovend Whattsapp berichtje vrijdagmiddag. Het is erg goed bevallen. Vandaag nog even bijgepraat. Er is ook zeer goed voor de inwendige mens is gezorgd. Het was lekker warm binnen, behaaglijk en gezellig. Erg leuk dat er een schommel, drumstel,pingpongtafel zijn. Zo kan men kan zich dan tussendoor toch op een bepaalde manier even uitleven, wat tijdens een lange vergaderdag soms even goed is. …..”, Photonis,  nov. ’15
