Location and venue

The symposium is located on a panoramic location on the beachside of the Netherlands, the boulevard of Egmond aan Zee, only 10 meters from the beautiful beach in the North Holland. With an all-around ticket, we offer the possibility to stay at the symposium's location: Golfzang Strandhotel. Within 500 meters from the hotel, you will find the town center, the beautiful surroundings of beach, dunes, and woods that are ideal for walking or cycling. Warm colors, fresh grass, wood, local modern art, and a natural design creates a pleasant and inspiring environment to follow workshops during the day and to socialize in the evening.
