First Time to IBC? 

Like visiting any big tradeshow, you'll want to do the following before you leave:

  • Download the mobile app or get acquainted with the layout of the exposition by printing maps from their website.
  • Plan your transportation to and from the show so you won't have any hiccups. If you're from another part of the world, the names of the streets can be confusing. Taxis can be expensive. 
  • Register for events before the show. This will help you with your schedule and will ensure that you will not miss out because an event sells out.
  • Put together a schedule of things you want to see. Time will always get away from you if you don't have a plan. 
  • Get a Dutch phrasebook or translation app. Most of the people that you will meet will speak English, but you'll want to translate your dinner menu, street signs, and so on.
