Prepare for Berlin Buzzwords 2016

Maybe you've been to #bbuzz before, maybe it's your first time that you're attending the event. Either way we are happy that you're part of it and prepared some helpful information for you to make the three days as smooth and successful as possible:

What to do before the conference kicks off?

  • Plan your conference schedule. It frees up your time on site so that you can move quickly to the sessions you are interested in. You can find the timetable online. Moreover you will find a printed program in your conference bag that will be handed out at the registration.
  • Dress code is casual and comfortable. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as you can expect to walk throughout the day.
  • Bring your business cards, you will meet people that you want to have contact with after the conference.
  • Have empty space available in your luggage to be able to bring back some giveaways and gifts provided by our sponsors and media partners.
  • Don't forget: Berlin is a big city and you will need some time to get from A to B. Check all important information about the venue and how to get there here.

Barcamp information

  • Registration starts on Sunday, June 5, at 1 pm at Frannz Club. You'll find the entrance at the corner Schönhauser Allee and Sredzkistraße (see sitemap attached below)

  • Do you want to hold a presentation at the barcamp? That's great. But please make sure to bring your own laptop and an adapter for your MacBook (if necessary)
