The AmsterJAM will be held in a high profile venue where media and spectators will have oppurtinity to witness the most unique exposure through international television broadcasts, extreme sports magazines and web content.
There are multiple factors involved in selecting a location for the AmsterJAM. We want to ensure the area is spectator friendly as well as convienent for the media.The area must be large enough for the feature scoffolding and allow the competitors enough space to feel comfortable to execute more difficult tricks. The ideal location would be in a large plaza area, specifically leidseplein Square or Dam Square. The scoffolding for the feature will require an expierenced construction crew to ensure this safe assembly process is completed quickly and efficiently.
