Talk of the town in The Hague

The Hague looks back on the two biggest events of the year: The One Young World Summit 2018 and the 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health. The One Young World Summit gathered more than 1,800 young leaders from 194 countries in the International City of Peace and Justice. One Young World The Hague was the biggest edition of the summit to date. The official aftermovie provides an exclusive insight into the event. The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health is the biggest conference of its kind. With its diverse, four-day programme the event attracted more than 4000 doctors, scientists, politicians and patients, all with one common goal: Fight Tuberculosis.

Maximising the positive impact of events

One Young World and the Union World Conference on Lung Health have one goal in common as well: Providing a platform for knowledge exchange and education that can inspire and motivate delegates to promote positive change. This is becoming increasingly important for The Hague as an event destination as well. Events that take place here should mirror the city’s values and share its great ambition to work towards building a better world: “In The Hague we want to create positive impact and motivate event organisers to do the same together with us”, says Nienke van der Malen, the director of The Hague Convention Bureau. According to van der Malen this impact can be achieved through different drivers such as inspiration, leadership, initiative and focused action. “Us at The Hague Convention Bureau are the connectors between event organisers and the local infrastructure, the expert knowledge and the countless small initiatives that are located in our city”, says van der Malen. “Event organisers should make use of these valuable resources, to add depth to their event and maximise a sustainable, positive impact.”

Finalist for coveted ICCA Best Marketing Award 2018

Great impact was achieved by The Hague Convention Bureau through their initiated Cyber Security Week. Instead of spread-out, individual events, THCB collaborated with The Hague Security Delta, the municipality of The Hague and 100 other partners to organise a weeklong festival around the topic (IT-) security. Last year, 4324 delegates from 70 countries joined more than 80 security-related events in and around The Hague. For placing The Hague on the global agenda as one of the pioneers in cyber security matters, The Hague Convention Bureau, together with Visit Scotland Business Events and the Serbia Convention Bureau, has reached the finals of the coveted ICCA Best Marketing Award 2018.

More than 1000 new hotel rooms

Thanks to the growing recognition of The Hague as an ambitious event destination, the city is experiencing a growing number of international visitors. To be able to meet the growing demand in accommodation, more than 1000 new hotel rooms will be opened in the upcoming years. The reconstruction of already existing hotels as well as the construction of new hotels make this possible. Apart from new hotel rooms, the construction process of the new OCC (Onderwijs- en Cultuurcomplex) – a modern, multifunctional centre for education and culture – has begun last summer. After completion (expected in 2021) the Residentie Orkest, the Dutch Dance Theatre and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague will reside here.
