Velocity Europe Birds of a Feather Meetup
With excitement building for the Velocity Conference in Berlin, we are happy to announce a pre-event meet up on Monday, November 7 at the Betahaus in Berlin.
The event will be a great opportunity for visitors of the Velocity conference to beat the jet lag with a day of networking and relaxed sessions and talks. To get everyone in the Berlin-state-of-mind, the evening will be capped with a party.
Berlin has quickly established itself as one of Europe’s main technology hubs. There are a lot of web companies in Berlin which are part of a constantly growing and vibrant local web community. The location for the BoF, Betahaus, is a shared-office innovation-inducing place that is used by small and large startups as well as established organisations.
Participation is free for Velocity Europe attendees. Non-Velocity attendees can pay 50 Euros to take part in the BoF event. The evening party is open to all and does not require registration.
The pre-event will be organized as an open space or unconference with on-spot planning of the sessions. The event is limited to 150 participants who must register in advance. If the event is not sold out in advance, participants can show up at the door.
At the Betahaus, we have 2 larger rooms and 4 smaller meeting rooms. We will hold presentations in the larger rooms and hold discussions in the meeting rooms. The meeting rooms for the discussion can hold up to 10 people. Anyone interested in speaking at the event can contact Eliot (eliot(at)soundcloud.com) to submit a discussion topic.
The day will close with an open party . Event participants will enjoy a dinner buffet & free drinks at the after-event party.
