HOST CITY
The Hague

Economic sectors such as Energy, Finance & Legal, IT & Mobile and (Cyber) Security are well-represented in The Hague. The city is also the seat of the Dutch government - a place where important decisions affecting the future of the country are taken every day. With knowledge institutions such as The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the universities of Leiden, Delft and Rotterdam, there's a steady stream of highly educated talent to the city.

What especially distinguishes The Hague is the excellent cooperation that exists between business, government, and knowledge institutions, as well as within the sectors. That cooperation brings with it new knowledge and the development of innovative products. That's what is happening, for example, in The Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe. More than 13,000 people work there in some 400 organizations to improve cyber security around the world.
