90% of the population speak at least two languages and Amsterdam itself is a compact city that’s easy to get around, where exhibitor and visitor accommodation is no problem to source with over 40,000 nearby hotel rooms to choose from.
Amsterdam has been named as one of the most influential business centres in Europe but the historic and compact city is probably best known for tourism, which will be a key draw for show visitors, offering the opportunity to combine business with pleasure, entertain clients, or simply as a stop off on a trip to any of the many businesses within easy reach of Amsterdam.
The Netherlands’ capital city has been coined the ‘Venice of the north’ and Amsterdam is packed with cultural highlights like the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum (modern art) and the baroque Royal Palace on Dam Square.
Despite the Netherlands being relatively small, Amsterdam has been one of the world’s leading trading centres for centuries. The country’s impressive GDP per capita makes it one of the richest nations in the world, despite its low population. Amsterdam is the financial and business capital of the Netherlands and is still classed as amongst the best settings for an international business. Torque-Expo Amsterdam will tap into this trading heritage and the city’s fantastic current business reputation.
