the web performance conference 14-15 November 2024, Amsterdam

Venue

performance.now() will take place at the Zuiderkerk, a 17th-century church-turned-conference-venue in the heart of Amsterdam.

Sessions, breaks, lunch and an afterparty with drinks and a bite but no music will all be happening at this venue.

During the breaks upstairs, you can get answers to your web performance questions at the Performance Help Desk, sponsored by Google. The help desk will be staffed throughout the conference by members of Google's Core Web Vitals team and other experts from the performance community.

The venue is wheelchair-accessible, but please let us know beforehand if you're in a wheelchair. We need to make some tiny preparations.

Built in the early 1600s, when Amsterdam grew exponentially, it is the first purpose-built Protestant church in the country at the very least - possibly the world. At build time it was at the southern edge of the city, hence the name South Church. Meanwhile ... that's not the case any more.

What to expect?

“I found that going to a conference like this isn’t only about learning new things. It’s the experience as a whole! You’re getting inspired. You’re getting overwhelmed. You’re getting exposed to new situations. You’re getting forced to speak english for days! And you’re making new friends and contact with people that has the same interest as you, even though I didn’t meet a single one who works with exactly the same thing as me!”
