We’re looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!
Below is information on booking accommodations, getting to the conference, travel information, and general information about Amsterdam!
Pakhuis de Zwijger
Piet Heinkade 179
1019 HC Amsterdam
Pakhuis de Zwijger is a beautiful location in the middle of Amsterdam. A renovated and repurposed riverside warehouse, it is a center of creativity and social innovation. It is easily reachable by plane, train and tram, only a ten minute walk from Amsterdam’s iconic Central Station. The perfect place to get together for inspiration and then head out into Amsterdam for relaxation.
Getting there and accommodation
Amsterdam has a fantastic public transportation system.
- Buses 43, 246 and 759 stop right in front of the conference.
- Tram 26, departing from Amsterdam Centraal Station (main train station in the city).
A note to out of towners in regards to obtaining a reloadable card for public transportation.
You can purchase an “OV chipkaart” at Amsterdam Centraal and most large metro stations (including Schiphol). Note that the unattended machines don’t handle non-EU issued (for example Chip+Signature) cards well. Some U.S. Credit Unions now offer Chip+Pin technology on their debit card (note: not credit card). If your card doesn’t work or you want to use Euros (other than coins), there is a customer service center located on the “IJ side” of Amsterdam Centraal where you can purchase a chipkaart in person at the Service Office. If you’re arriving via Schiphol, a similar service is offered in the main train hall
