Why It’s Worth Going

  • Talk in person

    To see old friends. To discuss current problems. To come up with new ideas. To debate and just chat.
  • Switch the format to offline

    To have a change of scenery, to distract and have a good time. To gain fresh impressions and new acquaintances.

    If the situation worsens and offline events are canceled, we will move the Offline Day to online. That way, speakers will give their talks remotely or from our studio. Nothing will change for participants with a "Double Online" ticket. Online + Offline participants can convert their ticket into a "Double Online" ticket with a refund of the price difference, or carry it over to the next year.
