In 1931 Frans van Landschot, mayor of ´s-Hertogenbosch at the time, opened the first indoor livestock market in the Netherlands; "de Bossche Veemarkt". The building has been used as such until the Food and Mouth disease outbreak of 2001 made the trade of ruminants on markets a thing of the past. The building however was so impressive that it was placed on the list of state monuments. After a thorough restoration the building is now used as a congress centre. Where once cows and calves changed hands, now knowledge and expertise are exchanged.
1931 is accessible by car or public transport. There is a large carpark on the grounds.
