Many shops are wheelchair friendly and the main floor of the expo is accessible by wheelchair. We have many wheelchair participants every year and welcome your participation.
I can't afford the pass. Can I still attend the event?
Yes. You can buy single ticket admission to the expo only for 50 euro - these day passes are not available in advance.
What hotels are close to the event?
We recommend staying near Central Station if you plan to spend most of your time at the Expo. The nearest hotels to the Melkweg are the American (five stars) and the Quentin (three stars). This area of town is known as the Leidseplein and is a good choice for anyone who wants to attend all the concerts as their main priority.
I'm planning a vacation to Amsterdam next year. I would like to acquire a book and/or information on the city. Do you have anything like that?
You can get a lot of free info. online by searching "Amsterdam Hotels"; "Amsterdam Travel Guide"; and "Amsterdam Coffeeshops". If you want to relive the Cannabis Cup experience, just bring a copy of the October 2010 issue of HIGH TIMES and stay at either the American or Quentin; or better yet, plan your vacation during the Cup.
