Afternoon sessions


For the first time, NL-ix will include Afternoon Sessions prior to our Late Summer Drink 2024 event on September 12th. The Afternoon Session will be primarily focused on inspiration and knowledge sharing and is “invite-only” based, however with the same relaxing vibe as the Late Summer Drink - so casual beach.

There are three keynote speakers who will inspire you on the topics of security (DDoS) and AI. NL-ix has room for a limited amount of guests who can also (of course) attend our Late Summer Drink 2024 party afterwards.

Come join us at Scheveningen Beach for the Afternoon Sessions. Details are:

When: Thursday, 12th September ’24 | 14:00 – 17:00 CEST
