SmartRail will take place on the 17th-19th April 2018.  If you have registered for two days you may attend on the 17th and 18th April. If the workshop day is also included in your registration, you may also attend on the 19th April. 


The event will take place at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA), Piet Heinkade 27, 1019 BR Amsterdam.


The PTA is very easy to reach by car, tram, train or boat.  Detailed information can be found by clicking on this link and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.  Please be aware that Bio-Based World News will not be providing transfers from any of the airports or railway stations. 


There is no free parking available at the PTA.  The closest car park is Piet Heingarage which is directly underneath the PTA, costs €0.50/7 minutes and is open 24/7.  A cheaper alternative is the Park&Ride P&R Zeeburg which is 5-10 minutes away from the terminal by No. 26 tram.  For further details visit:


Visit the registration desk upon arrival at the event to collect your badge. If you forget your registration ticket, you can simply let us know your name at the registration desk and we will be able to find your registration and print your badge. Please wear your badge clearly at all times to ensure unrestricted access during the event.


We have partnered with Preferred Hotel Reservations who have negotiated discounted rates and flexible cancellation terms with various hotels all within walking distance of the Passenger Terminal.  To view the hotels, rates, and to book, please click on this link:  Due to the high number of events taking place in Amsterdam at the same time as SmartRail, it is recommended that you book your accommodation as soon as possible, as affordable accommodation sells out well in advance. 

Please note SmartRail World will not be held responsible should you need to cancel your accommodation last minute and are charged cancellation fees.

Meeting Mojo

Everyone who registers will have access to our new tool Meeting MoJo.  Meeting Mojo allows you to easily build a company and personal profile and search through the hundreds of other industry leaders attending the event.  You can also send a limited number of meeting requests and pre-book onsite meeting rooms for 1-2-1 meetings.


Catering is provided for all attendees during the day, and a drinks reception with appetisers at the end of the first day will also be open to all.  If you have particular dietary requirements please let us know well in advance so that we can endeavour to cater for them. 


WiFi will be available throughout the meeting area suitable for checking emails and browsing.


An unmanned cloakroom will be open during the event open days.  There is no fee to use the cloakroom and items are left at your own risk.

An excellent opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of what is state of the art in railway business. Definitely worth to dedicate two working days for it.
