3 - The Hague - World Forum

The World Forum is a major international conference centre situated in The Hague, the city of Peace and Justice. The World Forum hosts events that have an impact on the whole world, "Events that shape the world".

The combination of the largest auditorium in the Netherlands and a variety of meeting rooms make this venue the ideal place for every type of event. The venue's compact nature provides an ambiance that is well-suited to exchanges thanks to its intimate atmosphere.

The World Forum is also defined by its Corporate Social Responsibility, and its Ethical Programme has been awarded a Golden Green Key, the highest honour available in the sector.


Originally, The Hague was a small 13th century village. Today, it is the 3rd largest city in the Netherlands, with 500,000 inhabitants and more than 100 different nationalities represented. It is a "City of Diplomacy", whose aim is to become the "Legal Capital of the World". The Hague has imposed itself as the International City of peace and justice, which already makes it a city that is unique on the planet.

Barely 100 years after the first Peace and Justice conference was held in the city in 1899, today the Hague is deeply committed and active in terms of international meetings and conferences for peace and justice. Furthermore, it is the homeland of almost all the international organisations working to promote peace and administer justice, such as the Peace Palace, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, Eurojust, the headquarters of Europol, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The Hague is the seat of the Dutch Government, as well as the home of the Royal Residence. The city is home to 104 embassies and consulates, as well as a large number of headquarters for multinational companies, particularly banks and insurance companies.

The capital of the province of South Holland has voluntarily chosen to not develop its industry to a high level in order to preserve its natural side. With more than 150 international organisations, the city is the 2nd UN city in the world, and is its judicial capital.

With 20 million visitors a year, this green city on the sea exudes an elegant and international atmosphere. The Hague has everything a visitor could want, with 11 km of coastline and two magnificent beaches, one with several nightclubs, a casino and a marina, the other offering relaxing walks where tranquillity is the key word.

Discover the hague - world forum's website The city has almost 45 museums, including a number of international renown, housing works by grand masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Mondriaan.

The Hague is also a festive destination, beating to the yearlong rhythms of jazz and dance, with an equally merit-worthy cuisine. In addition to its seafood specialties, the city's cosmopolitan nature means that its 700 restaurants, pubs and cafés provide a wide range of cuisines, for all budgets!

The Hague is situated near the two largest cities in the Netherlands, Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and is only 100 km from Belgium and 150 km from Germany. Just 20 minutes by ferry takes you to Great Britain and the city's two main stations have Thalys links to Europe, particularly Paris and Brussels. Finally, if you choose to travel by air, the Hague is at the gateway to the entire world, being just 30 min from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport and 20 min from Rotterdam-The Hague airport.
