Seven weeks to go until the Amsterdam Dance Event kicks off. Here are the reasons you cannot miss it this year!
The end of the season is coming, which means ADE is right around the corner. Clubbing TV has been attending to the Dutch event since 2009, let us tell you why :
- Because….Felix Meritis !
The iconic hotel will host once again the Amsterdam Dance Event. After few years of renovation (and a pandemic) Felix Meritis will open its new doors to the delegates who will be able to attend the conferences, meet up and talk along the canal.
Many collaborations, partnerships, bookings and business have been made behind those doors, why not yours?

Wandering day and night in the beautiful streets of Amsterdam, almost getting hit by bikes, hiding from the rain and stopping into coffee shops, you can do it all in your spare time.
