MCA and Uber bring you home. Or somewhere else...

Heading home or downtown after Mobile Convention Amsterdam? MCA and taxi app Uber provide the first Uber users visiting MCA and speakers a 20 euro’s credit for your taxi.

Especially for Mobile Convention 2014, Uber - also a speaker at the event – offers its first users and MCA visitors a 20 euro credit to use for taxis in Amsterdam. So if you’re heading towards your hotel or having dinner in the city after the event, download the Uber app, fill in the promo code we’ll reach out to you at the event and enjoy a guaranteed no teletrack ride into Amsterdam to a place you pick. Speakers at Mobile Convention Amsterdam will be provided a 30 euro credit to explore Amsterdam in a cab.

Taxi app Uber is one of the fastest growing companies in the world and rather feared by conventional taxi companies. Uber is a venture-funded startup and Transportation Network Company based in San Francisco, California that allows passengers to connect with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services using a mobile device. The company arranges pickups in dozens of cities around the world.

General Manager at Uber for the Netherlands Niek van Leeuwen will explain how a simple and scalable business model can transform transportation and logistics in all 75 cities they currently operate in. Noteworthy: Niek still drives a Volkswagen Golf (but only when he's not in an Uber). However, he’s made 'Moving People' his personal adage.
