How to reach the Amsterdam RAI Conference Centre

Excellent accessibility
The RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre is the perfect venue for exhibitions, conferences, seminars and other events. This is partly due to its excellent accessibility, both from within the Netherlands and from abroad, on public and private transport alike.

Amsterdam RAI has its own railway station and is less than ten minutes travelling time by train from Schiphol Airport. Although the RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre is located on the outskirts of Amsterdam, the city centre with its attractive canals, pavement cafés, tourist attractions and a wide range of entertainment is just fifteen minutes away by public transport. The express trams are ideal for longer journeys within the city boundaries, and the ordinary trams stop right in front of the RAI and provide a quick and convenient service to all parts of Amsterdam.

And last but not least, Amsterdam RAI has its own harbour on the side of the complex that borders on the park. This provides a direct connection to Amsterdams extensive canal network.
