Cities like Maastricht and Hiroshima offer the "all in one place"
experience. Pretty much everything your would want to see/buy/eat
could be gotten to by foot, a short cab ride or even the tram.
This is also very much true for places like Oslo, Vancouver, and
yes Amsterdam (apart from the separation of venue and hotels for
an event as large as the IETF).

This has a lot more to do with geography than it has to do with
population density.
