SIDN Connect 2017

SIDN Connect? Never heard of it! And that's no surprise. The familiar SIDN Contact Day has undergone a major re-think. And with the new event goes a new name. So what's changed? For some time now, we've been diversifying our services and developing new activities. That involves working with a wide variety of partners, including .nl registrars. And our growing network includes many partners who could be useful to one another. So we're organising SIDN Connect to enable our business partners to meet. SIDN Connect will have a broader programme than our Contact Days had, with more sessions and more interaction. And a new venue! We'd love you to join us at the KNVB Campus, Zeist, for SIDN Connect 2017!
