International City Podium 2016

The International City Podium 2016 took place at WTC The Hague on 22.11.2016 and was organized in partnership with WTC The Hague, WFIA and Municipality of The Hague.

Over 200 people attended the event, mix of  talent working/studying at international organizations, NGOs, companies (from large multinationals until startups), local service providers and universities. The aim was to open up people’s perspectives on the opportunities in the regional labor market and help them connect with other talent.

The BuzzMaster tool helped to create a dynamic and highly interactive program. Nine speakers on stage have shared their inspiring stories and great initiatives. The program was followed by networking where people could connect to other ambitious people, based on their passion, purpose and potential.
