Coming over by Thalys train?

In the weekend after the conference, 10th and 11th of November, the Thalys won't run between Amsterdam and Antwerp. Instead, you should take a train to Roosendaal near the border, then switch to the regular Intercity to Antwerp and Brussels, then switch to the Thalys. Please keep this in mind if you come by Thalys train.
