Our New Years event will be held on Thursday January 14th at NEMO in Amsterdam. Many local and international internet related organisations based in the Netherlands will again join up to organise a smashing New Year event for the local internet community of the Netherlands! You are sure to run into old friends, acquaintances and new interesting people working on areas of the internet that you've not yet encountered. From grids and clouds to accessibility, from hackers to hosters, from civil rights to registries - everyone will be attending.

In parallel with the New Years event a number of activities will take at the same venue. If you want to host an event, please contact the organisers


Preceding the event there will be a buffet from 18.00h, courtesy of amongst other the government programmes Netherlands in Open Connection and Forum Standaardisatie. Join us for drinks, fine food and plenty of nice people between 19.00 and 23.00 at NEMO, Oosterdok 2 in Amsterdam.


You can register online for this event. If you have any questions, please contact the person who invited you within one of the participating organisations, or contact Michiel Leenaars or Sandra Gijzen, +31 20 535 4441.

See who is attending


We have the main space reserved for drinks and conversation only, so you can meet up with people you know or would like to meet. The foyer is where you will find some food and can continue talking and drinking, find recruiters to see if there are any new career challengers you should consider and get some information and nice giveaways from the various organisations. In the lecture hall we have a lot of interesting 'lightning talks' for you (see the program below), so you can get a quick update on what is happening or about to happen. And of course in the same lecture hall we will have the traditional Chairman's debate at 20h.
