Conference location

ECCB 2016 will be held in the World Forum, a leading international convention centre in The Hague perfectly situated between the city centre and the beach.

World Forum successfully hosted the largest summit in the history of the Netherlands: the Nuclear Security Summit 2014. This international conference was attended by the leaders or heads of state of more than 50 countries, including President Barack Obama of the United States of America. It attracted around 5,000 delegate members and thousands of journalists to The Hague.
It is through events such as these that the World Forum demonstrates that it is fully capable of hosting top-level international conferences. The venue provides a safe, secure and flexible environment. The World Forum has become a leading specialist in this area due to the extensive knowledge and experience it has gained in this field over the past decade.

The flexibility of its multifunctional location allows the World Forum to offer a wide variety of events. The site is also home to the Netherlands’ largest theatre auditorium, where many major national and international productions are staged.
