King to host dinner for heads of NSS delegations
RVD, no 50
On Monday 24 March 2014 His Majesty the King will host a dinner at Huis ten Bosch Palace in The Hague for the heads of the delegations to the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS).
The dinner will be attended by Her Majesty Queen Máxima, Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister of Foreign Affairs Frans Timmermans. The heads of delegation will each be accompanied by a member of their delegation.
The NSS will take place on 24 and 25 March 2014 at the World Forum in The Hague. The goal of the Summit is to prevent nuclear terrorism around the world. Four international organisations and 53 countries will participate, represented at the highest political level. The first NSS was held in Washington, in 2010. In 2012 the second NSS took place in Seoul. President Obama asked the Netherlands to organise the third summit.

Press stand on the forecourt of Huis ten Bosch Palace
A press stand will be set up on the forecourt of Huis ten Bosch Palace for photos/video of the arrival of the guests between 19:00 and 20:00. (NB: The guests will be greeted by the King and Queen inside the palace. Consequently, the royal couple will not be visible from the stand.) NB: On the palace grounds no satellite vans are allowed and no stand-up positions are available.
Step 1: obtain NSS registration (mandatory)
To request a place on the press stand on the grounds of Huis ten Bosch Palace, you must have first registered with the NSS. You can apply for registration between now and 10 March 2014 via https://www.nss2014.com/nl/pers/accreditatie.
Step 2: apply for accreditation for the press stand at Huis ten
Members of the media can apply for accreditation for the Huis ten Bosch press stand between now and Monday 17 March, 18:00 via email@example.com. Please state your name, affiliation, position and email address.
Only one camera team (max. 2 people) or one photographer can be admitted per news outlet. No satellite vans will be allowed on the palace grounds and no stand-up positions are available.
Given the expected demand and the limited space, not all requests for accreditation to the Palace press stand can be granted. An effort will be made to ensure the broadest possible mix of participants.
Members of the media will be notified by email no later than Friday 21 March whether their applications for accreditation have been accepted. Additional information will follow on transport from the International Media Centre to Huis ten Bosch Palace. Please allow a substantial amount of extra time for security checks and transport.
