Booking.com, the Netherlands-headquartered global leader in online reservations, is expanding its presence in Amsterdam with a new 145,300-square-foot office space.
Booking.com’s new office is located in the Piet Hein Buildings with other international corporations, near Central Station. The complex is comprised of three smart buildings that provide geothermal energy storage and charging points for electric vehicles.
Darren Huston, CEO of Booking.com, has emphasized how important Amsterdam is to their business in the past, saying, “It’s crucial for the further development of this e-commerce business, that talented people from all over the world want to work for the company and can gather in one location. As such, establishing a headquarters in Amsterdam is a great asset for us. Especially for young people, Amsterdam is the place to be. They want to live and work here because the work-life balance of this city is such a unique experience.”
Booking.com, which is owned and operated by U.S.-based Priceline.com, was founded in 1996 and employs people from more than 70 different nationalities.
