By taxi

Every taxi company can bring you to RAI Amsterdam and will drop you of as close as possible to the entrance of the event. For logistical reasons, we only allow TCA taxis on the premises to pick up visitors. At some events the TCA taxis are already waiting at the entrance of the event. If there are no taxis waiting, the reception desk can call one for you.

If you would like to use another taxi, then the pickup point will be outside the RAI area.


By train

The RAI has its ‘own’ station, RAI Amsterdam which is located a stone’s throw from the RAI complex and is easy to reach from anywhere in the Netherlands. When you leave the station follow the signs for RAI Amsterdam.
