Afternoon program

Registration


To provide context, the Neutral Peering Days team attempts to ensure that every attendee adds value to the collective and unique nature of the event. To this extent, we have found in the past that the activities of those in roles involving sales, account management, business development, consulting services, product marketing, or similar non-operational roles are not appropriate Neutral Peering Days attendees. We kindly ask of you to keep this in mind when registering.

Take me to the registration page.

You will be redirected to the NL-ix website to register.


NPD 17 will be held at the Grand Hotel Amrâth Kurhaus, a famous landmark location on the Dutch coast. The hotel is situated a stone’s throw away from Beach Club Culpepper, venue for the Late Summer Drinks on September 14th. As our attendee, you can book rooms at the Kurhaus at a special meeting rate from 12-17 of September. Rooms can be booked directly by following the booking link below:

Please be aware that we have a limited number of rooms available at the Kurhaus. All rooms without a booking will be released to the hotel early June. Afterwards hotel rooms can only be acquired (at the meeting rate) based on availability. We would therefore like to urge you to book your room well in advance.
