The platform city

26-10-17 19:00
Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam

An evening at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam about sharing platforms and their influence on the city.

Online sharing platforms take an increasingly prominent position within the city. Think of the rooms offered via platforms like Airbnb e.a.) that now equal the number of hotelbeds in Amsterdam; or the online taxi service Uber that now is member of the network council of the Amsterdam Economic Board. But there are also many other bottom-up organized cooperative initiatives like Snappcar, Thuisafgehaald and FAIRbnb. What does this platform economy has to offer the city? What is its influence?

This evening is Dutch spoken.
