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).

More information can be obtained by using the GVB or 9292 websites. Both have excellent apps in the iOS and Google Play store. Other apps (like Google Maps) have great integration as well.

A note to out of towners in in regards to obtaining a reloadable card for public transportation.

In previous years you had to purchase something called a “OV chipkaart” and/or separate tickets from the NS in order to access the Public Transportation in the Netherlands. As of this year (2023) this is no longer required!

The Dutch have leapfrogged into 2020s by allowing you to check-in & check-out with your contactless debit or credit card, in addition to allowing payment via Apple Pay or Google Pay. Just remember to check in and out using the same method of payment (including which card is active on your mobile) – otherwise you’ll pay full fare twice! More information at OVPay.
