First time at re:publica? We want you to have a great time – right from the start! The conference is a huge event with 6.000 visitors, 600 journalists and 450 speakers filling 300 hours of programme. At the same time re:publica has retained over the years its familiar and informal atmosphere in an open environment.
To make sure it stays that way we invited our first-time attendants to come to our Newbies Meet Up. The first one already took place today at sunny pre:publica. Around 20 curious newcomers came to ask questions, got to know other “Newbies” and had a first beer together.
And many more were attending our second gathering today, Tuesday, at 2 pm! After a quick tour of the event space we gave them an (equally quick) input on how re:publica "works" (where to find what, what's behind the different tracks, is there an app for that?).
We hope you all enjoyed it and you have three exciting days at #rp15!
