What is a hybrid conference?

The World Justice Forum will be held in a hybrid format that will entail both in-person and online interactive meetings, plenaries, and working sessions.

Plenary sessions also will be recorded for later viewing. In-person participants will be able to join all aspects of the program in The Hague, including networking and cultural events, off-site visits, hands-on interactive working sessions, and the Justice Expo arena.
