Conference details

MyHeritage LIVE 2019 will take place on September 6-8 2019 at the Hilton Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The hotel is located south of central Amsterdam, near the museum district, and we have arranged a special rate for guests who choose to stay at the hotel.

In addition to a plenary session from MyHeritage Founder and CEO, Gilad Japhet, there will be genealogy and DNA lecture tracks, as well as hands-on workshops to walk attendees through MyHeritage tools and features step-by-step.

Conference tickets include access to lectures, workshops, coffee breaks, lunches on Saturday and Sunday, a Friday night drink reception, and the celebratory MyHeritage party on Saturday night, all of which you don’t want to miss!

Guest speakers

We’ve lined up an excellent array of speakers and we’ll announce the full list soon once we complete receiving all confirmations.

Past events

MyHeritage LIVE 2018 in Oslo, Norway was a remarkable event, enjoyed by all. There were three different tracks: DNA, genealogy, and hands-on workshops. Riveting talks by both guest speakers and MyHeritage staff captivated full audiences. Support team members were on hand throughout the conference to provide comprehensive support.

    I am really looking forward Amsterdam as I did not see the one in Norway and might learn something new.

    Do guests arrive on 6 Sept and leave on 8? Or do they arrive the day before (5th) and leave the day after (9th)? In other words, for how many nights does one need to book the hotel?

    • Esther

      February 17, 2019

      Hi Shabnam,

      It would be a two-night hotel visit – arriving on September 6th, and departing on the 8th.
