Call for Location

For the OWASP Netherlands chapter meetings to come, we are continuously looking for locations! Most preferable, the location is good accessible with public transport and by car. Free parking should be provided. What do we expect:

  • meeting room for at least 50 people
  • lunch for attendees
    • drinks, sandwiches...
  • a small present for the speakers
    • (e.g. bottle of wine, for speakers from aboard alcohol might be less practical if flying in only with hand luggage)
