IFC 2022 will be hosted at the NH Leeuwenhorst Hotel, a four-star hotel and conference centre in the town of Noordwijk in the Netherlands, close to the popular beach resort. Noordwijk is located about 45 minutes from Amsterdam City Centre and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
IFC 2022 will take place from 18-21 October 2022.

For those with IFC Programme tickets:
The main IFC programme will finish at 13:00 CET on Friday 21st October 2022, and lunch will follow.
If you would like to stay for additional nights, you can add this request to your registration form, or let us know at email@example.com.
Please note, airport transfers for IFC 2022 will run at set times and no discounts will be given for unused airport transfers.
You can! If you would like to share a room with another delegate, one of you must purchase a ticket with accommodation, and the other must purchase a ticket without accommodation. There is a double occupancy supplement of £25 per night which is payable directly to the hotel when you check in.
You are welcome to share your room with a guest who is not attending the conference. If you choose to do so, a double occupancy charge of £25 per night, which includes breakfast, is payable directly to the hotel.
Check-in is from 15.00 CET. If rooms are ready, guests may be able to check in earlier than this, but this is not guaranteed. There is a secure luggage storage area where you may leave your belongings until your room is ready.
Check-out is at 12.00 CET. Therefore, you will have to check out on Friday 21st October, before the closing keynote and leave your luggage in the secure storage area.
IFC 2022 will be carried out in full compliance with the requirements of the EU and the Dutch government. Hand sanitiser will be made available across the conference venue, and rooms will be ventilated between sessions. Masks are not required, but we will provide some if you wish to wear one.
Delegates will be given a Lateral Flow Test upon arrival by the hotel, to take in their room. This is not mandatory, but we encourage people to take the tests.
Masterclasses at IFC 2022 are intensive 6.5 hour sessions that take place across the first two days of the congress, with expert speakers delivering in-depth, cutting-edge content on your chosen topic. Ahead of the event, you will be given the opportunity to select from a variety of masterclasses on a diverse range of topics. Please note, selection of masterclass topics will be on a first-come, first-served basis. As numbers are limited, preferred selection cannot be guaranteed.

We suggest that you book as soon as possible in order to secure your place at IFC 2022 and to allow you the time to make the necessary travel and visa arrangements, especially if you are travelling to the congress from outside the Netherlands. We will close registrations when the congress is fully booked or by October 7, whichever is soonest.
You can register delegates using proxy names on the registration form (e.g. OrgTeam1, OrgTeam2, etc.) when booking. We can update ticket names for you at a later date.
We do not permit delegates to share passes.
If you unable to attend IFC 2022, we welcome substitute delegates attending in your place. We can change the information on your registration at no additional cost until October 7, 2022. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange this for you.
If you require a visa invitation letter, or accommodation confirmation please just email email@example.com, and we can send that over to you. Due to delays with the visa process at the moment, we encourage you to start your visa process asap.
Delegates are responsible for organising and funding their own transport to the Netherlands.
At the Resource Alliance, we aim to minimise our impact on the environment. As part of this policy, we are asking that all IFC 2022 delegates travel overland where possible, ideally by rail. Amsterdam is a travel hub that is incredibly well serviced from other European cities, including via the Eurostar direct from London.
If you have to fly and would like to offset your carbon emissions, we recommend atmosfair, a gold-standard nonprofit organisation that offers offsets for greenhouse gases emitted by travel and other activities.
We provide free shuttle bus transfers between Amsterdam to the conference centre, NH Leeuwenhorst on the mornings of Tuesday 18 October and Wednesday 19 October, in time for delegates to arrive for registration, as well as on Friday 21st after the conference has finished. Please see the coach times below.

Pick up Points:
If you can’t find the coaches, just look out for our lovely IFC Volunteers, who will be wearing orange T-shirts and can help guide you to the coaches.
Unfortunately, the Resource Alliance cannot offer bus transfers outside of these times and you will be required to make alternative transport arrangements. A taxi from Schiphol airport to Noordwijkerhout would cost approximately €100 – €150.
Alternatively, if you would like to navigate on the Dutch railways, you can plan a journey via https://www.ns.nl/en. The closest station to the conference centre is Voorhout, and tickets from Schiphol will normally take around half an hour with one change and will cost typically between €10 – €15.
If arriving a few days early or staying on after the conference, you may consider a hotel in Amsterdam. It is a short train ride out to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to pick up our coach. The NH also offer hotels in Amsterdam city and airport and you are welcome to check out their website http://www.nh-hotels.com or check the official Dutch website www.holland.com for more information on the local area and tourism in Holland as a whole.
Coach transfers to/from Satellite Hotels
Our offsite satellite hotels are located in the beautiful seaside town of Noordwijk itself and handpicked by our own staff. We are confident in their level of quality and comfort, and sure that you will have an enjoyable and memorable stay whichever accommodation option you choose.
We provide free bus transfers between all Satellite Hotels and the conference centre, which run in tandem with the IFC programme (daytime sessions and night-time social activities) so you won’t miss out on anything by staying offsite.
Yes! Using your credit card is the easiest way to pay for your ticket. This option is available when you register. Should you have any specific queries relating to your credit card payment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To request payment by invoice, please email email@example.com. Invoice payment terms are 28 days and no invoices will be issued after October 7, 2022. Please note that registrations will not be confirmed and your place is not guaranteed until you have paid in full. The price payable will be as quoted on the website at the time of registration. If you subsequently make changes to your booking, the ticket price may change to reflect the price at the time the amendment is confirmed.
Registrations will close at least two weeks ahead of the event and we are unable to take payment on site. Full payment must be received before the event in order for delegates to gain entry.

The Resource Alliance is committed to accelerating change in the social impact sector. By being part of the Resource Alliance community you commit to complying with a standard of conduct at all events, activities and social media interactions.
These standards of behaviours are required in relation not only to our supporters, colleagues, and volunteers but also to the sector and those we support more widely. Every person who volunteers with, works for, or comes into contact with us should be treated with dignity and respect.
The Resource Alliance is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone involved in our events. We believe that more diverse teams achieve more, and diverse representation at our events creates an even stronger community.
We follow a Code of Conduct for all our events in order to create the best experience possible for everyone. Before you participate in a Resource Alliance event, please review the Code of Conduct below. We invite you to help us create a safe and positive experience for all.
The Code of Conduct will be enforced across all events and applies to anyone who engages with the Resource Alliance including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, sponsors, vendors, partners and volunteers.
The Resource Alliance events are working conferences intended for professional learning, networking and collaboration within the social impact sector and wider community. They exist to encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression and require an environment that recognises the inherent worth of every person and group. To that end, our goal is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate, speak up, ask questions, and engage in conversation.
Every Resource Alliance event is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
Anyone asked to cease inappropriate behaviour is expected to comply immediately and failure to comply may result in being removed from the event, without a refund at the discretion of the organisers.
This Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by the Resource Alliance and the terms are non-negotiable. Your registration for or attendance at any Resource Alliance event indicates your agreement to abide by this policy and its terms. We expect participants to follow these rules at conferences, events and conference-related social events.
If you experience harassment, discrimination or a violation of any form whilst participating in a Resource Alliance event or activity, or if you are made aware that someone else may be affected by inappropriate behaviour, please let us know.
Reports can be made onsite at any event or by contacting us.
To report an incident, please connect with one of the Resource Alliance staff or board members, who can help address your questions or concerns. You can find them onsite in the IFC Secretariat (Harvard 7).
All reports will be treated in confidence and investigated in accordance with the Resource Alliance complaints procedures.
