How to register to our Annual Event
Members of EUROPUR and EURO-MOULDERS, speakers, representatives of trade press and guests invited by the Secretariat of both associations are welcome to participate free of charge.
|Consequences of COVID-19
To cater for uncertainty, the conference will be smaller than usual. Although we will have the same spaces initially foreseen for June – we must cater for the fact that in the future probably there will be limits on people per sqm for events. Therefore we will accommodate max. 250 participants. As we want to ensure that all member companies can send delegates to the event if they so wish, the following new rules have been set:
- Each EUROPUR and each EURO-MOULDERS member company gets up to 5 delegates, speakers from member companies are not counted in the quota. When necessary, please coordinate internally before registering.
- The event is currently strictly reserved for members and the few guests that had already registered for June.
We thank you for your understanding.
Registration to the conference takes place online, by clicking on the button below.
All participants are responsible for booking their own hotel accommodation. Europur & Euro-Moulders have made a room block available for the event. Details on the hotel and on how to book accommodation are below.

Getting to Park Plaza Amsterdam Airport by public transport.
The nearest public transportation is tram station Matterhorn in Amsterdam-Osdorp. Located at a 15-minute walk from the hotel, the tram can take you to Amsterdam Central Station, a transportation hub for trams, buses and trains. The closest direct train station is located at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
From the airport
The easiest way to reach us is by taking the train to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and take our complimentary shuttle bus from the airport. The shuttle bus will leave from the Arrivals area at the Schiphol airport. Turn to your right and walk to the farthest bus stop (A9 – 13.)

Our complimentary shuttle bus arrives at the airport every 30 minutes between 5:30 am and 11 pm. If you cannot find the shuttle, please contact the hotel.
If you take the tram from Amsterdam Central Station: walk outside toward the tram station. Look for Tram 1, heading toward Osdorp. In the tram, you can buy your tram ticket (approx. €3).
