Our venue uses 100% green energy from wind, we only work with local suppliers, we use recycled materials where possible and don’t provide any pointless giveaways, we certainly don’t use any single use plastic and we’re reducing the amount of meat on offer to attendees… Subsequently, we’re proud to say that the carbon footprint of World Bio Markets is very low.
We would therefore be hugely grateful if you can help us further by making conscious choices about your travel and accommodation. Please read on for more information.
Directions & Parking
The PTA is a 15 minute direct train from Schiphol Airport and/or a 10 minute walk from Centraal station. Detailed information on this and parking can be found by clicking here and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
Due to the high number of events taking place in Amsterdam at the same time as World Bio Markets, we highly recommended that you book your accommodation early, as affordable accommodation always sells out well in advance.
Our partner Preferred Reservations has secured flexible cancellation terms and best available rates with a selection of hotels close to the PTA, which can be found below. Click on the hotel picture to book or for more info.
We advise looking at various travel options before booking as rail has a significantly lower carbon footprint than travelling by air. For some attendees travelling by train would be simply impossible, and for others it may increase the journey time too severely, but it is worth bearing in mind the time it takes to get to an airport, wait around for departure, potential delays etc, compared to the relative ease of jumping on a train at a central train station, which can take you all the way to Amsterdam Centraal. Travelling by Eurostar has an even more significantly low impact, and is how the Bio Market Insights team will be travelling to and from London.
