Exhibition Staff Amsterdam

The capital of The Netherlands, this bright, lively city is known for its canals, narrow buildings and bicycles. But Amsterdam is so much more than just for tourists. Its spirit of commerce can be found in all aspects of life, and thanks to its excellent quality of life, Amsterdam is a hub for talent, for startups and is the international headquarters of many global companies.

Why exhibit there

Everything is close at hand and there is an extended network of internationally recognised service providers, able to offer you the competitive edge.

Getting there

Once you arrive at Schiphol International Airport, there is a direct railway line connecting the airport with Amsterdam Central Station, and is the fastest and most convenient form of transport to the city centre.

Amsterdam Airport Shuttles (run by Connexxion) depart every 10 minutes, with services to more than 100 hotels throughout the city.

Restrictions on what you can bring into the country

Nothing may be brought into the country that might pose a threat to the security, health, economy or environment of the Netherlands.

Expo Star of the Month

Key tourist hotspots

The city is famous for its historic homes, laid out in a pattern of concentric segments in the shape of a fan and built on piles driven through an upper layer of mud. Approximately 6,750 buildings dating from the 16th to 18th centuries are crowded into an area of 2,000 acres, dissected by 160 canals.

  • Visit The Rijksmuseum - The Rijksmuseum was founded in 1809 to house the country's collection of rare art and antiquities.

  • Explore The Anne Frank Museum - The museum is dedicated to the all-too-short life of one of the world's best-known Holocaust victims.

Where to eat

  • Envy - Gorge on succulent lobster coupled with beetroot or try the Dutch gourmet sausages, they are quite an adventure.

  • Bluespoon. Think handmade, truffle-touched gnocchi, cosily enfolded in egg yolk and Old Amsterdam cheese, with a tangle of salty Salicornia.

Bonus round

  1. Local currency is the Euro.

  2. Language is Dutch.

  3. The majority of foreign nationals wishing to stay in the Netherlands for up to three months require a short stay visa or Schengen visa (Schengenvisum). Foreign nationals from the EU, EEA or Switzerland as well as some other countries are exempt from the visa requirement.

  4. Plug sockets are the European wide two pin ones.

  5. There are no obvious cultural sensitivities, however when conducting business, take note:

  • The Dutch are fond of meetings.

  • The Dutch tend to get down to business and negotiations proceed at a rapid pace.

  • Small talk is considered a waste of time.

  • In Dutch business culture, it's typical to shake hands with everybody present and say your first and last name.
