While Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is not set to take place until October 21 – 25 in Amsterdam, there has still been plenty of uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ADE has confirmed it plans to go virtual in 2020.

The iconic dance music convention announced in an official statement that the “ADE Conference will take place in an online-first format, combining an extended digital program with limited physical networking elements.”

“As travel to Amsterdam is limited for most of the broader international B2B audience, our 2020 conference program will take place as an online-focused format. As always, we will combine panels, masterclasses and interactive Q&As with an extensive networking platform that enables ADE delegates to connect and meet up, both virtually as well as in real life. Details about the conference program and networking possibilities will follow in the coming weeks, so make sure to register in advance to be the first to get our updates.

Amsterdam is slowly on the road to recovery following the country’s battle with COVID-19 but the city has yet to reinstate large gatherings with clubs or festivals falling into the category.

“As the interpretations and consequences of the countermeasures by the Dutch government are still unclear for a city-wide event such as ADE, the festival’s exact shape is currently uncertain. Clearly, the normal size and scope of the festival make it seriously challenging to ensure everyone’s health and safety, and so we are continuously reevaluating the situation in close cooperation with the government. For now, we remain committed to offer you a suitable and responsible solution and we will update you on this as soon as possible.”
