practical information

Getting registered
To attend the ADE as a conference delegate you need to be registered. ADE has two types of registration: a day pass (only valid for the conference program) on the date chosen, and a 4-day full registration (valid for both the conference and festival program). Both registration types include access to the online delegates database, the ade delegates directory and the ade conference bag. Registration rates go up as the event gets closer, so book early and save. Read more



Getting there
You can reach Amsterdam in a number of different ways, and we are happy to help with both your arrival and departure from the city. Whether you will travel by plane, car or train Amsterdam is easy accessible from all around the globe.



Getting sleep
If you are looking for a hotel, you will notice that the hotel capacity is pretty limited this year. The reason for this is the fact there is a large medical congress conflicting with the ADE dates. But the ADE has come up with a few solutions to this problem offering hotel rooms through an online reservation system which are exclusively available to ADE delegates. Feel free to contact our hotel service in case you need help.
