Venue & Accommodation

The city of Amsterdam        

The 3rd IFA European Region Conference will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. From the historic heart of the city to the high-tech buildings on the city’s new Zuidas, Amsterdam is a lively city, and it invites you to come over and enjoy its pleasures.

It is a place with a creative and informal atmosphere, a metropolis at the size of a village. Amsterdam has a lot to offer, including some of the greatest works of art in the world, more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris and 7,000 monumental buildings.

No wonder Amsterdam’s ancient centre was nominated for UNESCO’s world heritage list.

Amsterdam has many other surprises as well. From world-famous diamond factories, to excellent shopping centres and many bars and clubs. Amsterdam will surprise you with its endless possibilities and its free and open spirit, 24 hours a day.
