A very Internet New Year 2020

Important message

The Internet New Years event was originally planned for January 16th, but is going to be relocated to another date due to issues with the venue. The volunteers behind the organisation want you all to have a great event, period. Given the circumstances, moving to another date is the only realistic option. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience, and hope for your understanding. A new date will be communicated through this page, as soon as possible. If you already registered, we will notify you soon.

The Internet New Years event is an established tradition: over thirty local and international internet organisations invite you to a joint Internet New Year's event which will be held somewhat later than normally. From registry to research network, from security to accessibility - and all the way back to hacking: you'll find plenty of interesting people to talk to.

We will announce the new date for the event on this web page.


The Internet New Years Event is great for catching up with old friends and acquaintances, as well as meeting new people working in various areas of the internet. But as always we have a really interesting programme featuring a diversity of lightning talks from interesting speakers.

The Internet Innovatie Award 2020 will once again be officially awarded to an important new internet initiative. And of course the traditional chairpersons debate, where the leaders of leading organisations discuss the preceding and upcoming year.

Do you have an idea for a talk? Mail the programme committee at, and maybe you'll find yourself on stage).

We look forward to seeing you at Internet New Year's event of 2020. Any questions or remarks? Let us know!
