World Forum, The Hague
Anime 2013 will be held at a new location, the World Forum in The Hague.
We have chosen this location from a multitude of candidates and the World Forum came out on top on almost all of
The Hague as one of the Netherlands’ major cities lies on direct train routes from several large cities in the Netherlands and Belgium, it’s close to several interesting areas like Scheveningen, one of the busiest beach towns in the country and the World Forum is located in one of the safest areas in the country, but that is not all!
The World Forum has one of the largest theaters in Europe which has a seating capacity of over 2200 and has a stage which is more than 18 meters wide! This makes it one of the most attractive Cosplay locations of Europe. If you don't believe us, take a look at these photos the nice people of the World Forum gave us to show to you:
Because it's not only Cosplay we do we also chose the World Forum for its event possibilities, Dealer room capacity, accessibility and its overwhelming welcoming atmosphere.
We're sure that Anime will find a great home in the World Forum and hope you will find so as well.
The immediate area around the World Forum has 3 large hotels. http://www.worldforum.nl/organisers/hotels
