Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague--March 24 & 25, 2014

I realize this mainly concerns the Hague, but thought maybe enough people might be considering day trips from Amsterdam to The Hague to make this worth posting here too. I wasn't sure it would be as readily seen in any of the other forums.

Just a friendly warning that this event will be causing public transport and traffic disruptions in and around The Hague, and especially around the venue site of The World Forum. They are expecting demonstrations. There will likely be a fair amount of police presence.

I should maybe have found a way to indicate a level of slightly sarcastic understatement with that description.

I live in the neighborhood and my partner works at one of the organizations adjacent to the World Forum. They are getting a "free" two day holiday for security reasons. We're leaving town and going far enough away for long enough to not have to deal with it. It's even worse than when Hilary Clinton was here.

My airline has a contract with the Hilton, they always reserve rooms for crewmembers here but this week the Hilton is fully booked by more important people and the contract is not respected, so we have to move Scheveningen.
