Extra note:
As always, the speakers start at 19.00, but doors open from 18.30 on. Which means you can come meet us a little sooner for a chat!

We started to charge a €5,30 entrance fee for our speaker events. We are doing this to create a value exchange and keep track of city enthusiasts (like you) attending our event. In return, you'll find inspiration, connection, quality speakers, a fantastic space, and of course... drinks after!
