Sustainable meetings at a unique meeting location in Groningen

Special Meeting location
in Groningen

Meetings in the peace and nature of Groningen at an inspiring meeting location

A stimulating environment promotes creativity. At The Land of Now you can have meetings your way. Whether you are looking for an ‘out of the box’ location, want to have a meeting in a peaceful location in the green or add with your company a climate neutral accent to your meeting: a meeting or training at The Land of Now will take you out of the daily routine and inspires new ideas.

External meetings offer more than just variety in the regular meetings. An innovative setting also provides a creative look at topics that are treated. It contributes to a higher focus and more active participation of participants and can also ensure more mutual connection by, for example, a team building activity as a meeting break or closing with a social drink.

As a retreat center and special meeting location, we offer space and attention to people and their ideas. Space for the pioneer in every individual. With us you can have a contemporary meeting with attention to people in the organization: so that innovation, productivity and social development go hand in hand.

Inspiring meeting location

The location exclusively at the disposal of you and your team

The Land of Now is a popular meeting location for companies, teams and organizations. Because no other groups are present during your stay, the location is exclusively at the disposal of you and your team.
The meeting options we offer can be specially tailored to your meeting or training and not only contribute to a creative and inspiring day, but also to productivity and effectiveness. So that everyone goes home with a satisfied feeling afterwards.

On the ground floor of the retreat center is a large attractive training or meeting room with professional sound system and equipped with all meeting facilities. The room can be arranged as desired. We have a setup for every idea. Whether you want to have the room furnished with tables and chairs, empty for physical or creative activities, or with yoga materials for a meeting break, for example, the possibilities are endless.

The salon, conservatory and restaurant also offer plenty of space to work in separate groups or to enjoy during a break.

‘An attractive environment for a meaningful meeting.’

Meeting location in nature

Our sustainable meeting location is located in the middle of the peace and vastness of the authentic Groningen landscape near the city of Groningen. Here you can still hear the grass grow and contemplate beautiful starry skies. Our unique outdoor location can make a valuable contribution to creative processes.

In our park-like landscaped garden you can wander, relax or dive into the outdoor sauna. Here on ‘het Veen’, as the Veenweg residents put it, you regularly see special scenes. Turkeys on a trip, a hare that comes to neighborhoods or a deer that passes by in the early morning. From the location you can walk with vast horizons and the wind in your hair. A short distance away is the beautiful Schildmeer and the Roegwoldt.

Respect for nature is self-evident for us and we allow ourselves to be inspired by new possibilities every time.
