As the international tech community descends up on Amsterdam this week for the annual The Next Web Conference, we’re gearing up for 3 days of brilliant speakers, super-networking, awesome parties and boat rides on the canal.

With nearly one thousand participants entering the city, hotels have booked up quickly. The travel-savvy amongst us (myself included) have turned to alternative housing options like Airbnb.

But let’s be honest. If there ever was a week to burn the candles at both ends, this is it. There isn’t much time for sleep in Amsterdam. So, if you’re still looking for a place to crash, why not rent out the Conference Hall itself for your stay?

That’s right. Starting today, you can rent out the TNW2012 stage on Airbnb.

Named the “Transformatorhuis”, the cozy room of 600m2 / 5400 ft2 is in an old Gas Factory in the perfect location in the middle of the Westergasfabriek culture park. It’s biking distance from all the main attractions and famous areas in Amsterdam and perfect for young couples and business peeps that attend TNW2012.

And it doesn’t stop there. Friday morning you will be having breakfast with Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia, who is presenting at 10am at the conference.

A shower and rental bike are also included with your stay! (Don’t worry, we’ll turn off the 12 meter wide screen at night so you can actually sleep.)

Here’s your view from outside! With an open bar and pancakes all day and night!

➤ Yours for just €116 per night. Book it here
