From an empty hall to an immersive venue with stages set to inspire and a feeling only know to those who step into Slush. All this will come to life at the end of the week but we just can’t wait to show you what it will be like. To set the tone and get you excited for what’s to come, we’re letting you take a peek into our drawing board.
Yes, it’s not a Slush event without its beaming lights. The Main Stage is adorned with these from top to bottom with a screen even those in middle-earth could see. Here speakers, founders, and wavemakers will share stories, discuss key topics in the tech scene and other exciting sessions that may be found in our agenda.
After getting filled up with oozing amounts of inspiration, your mind must be filled with curious questions. Swing on over (literally, maybe?) to the Slush Cafe where you can speak your thoughts and freely chat with our speakers. With its open design and setting, being heard will not be an issue.
Join our workshops at the Dialogue Stage and take your ideas that have resided in your mind from too long and activate it with guidance from mentors and industry experts. Let the hanging lights guide you as you put words into action. Learn new skills and meet other attendees as you sit together and enjoy the different sessions – from app development to communication workshops, we’ve got it all set up for you.
But if it’s growth you’re after, look for the plants. Here you’ll find startups pitching on and off the stage. Take a stroll around the Demo Booths located here and near the venue’s entrance. This fresh change in scenery and encounters will surely take you to a whole new world filled with passion, grit and hope.
That’s all we’ll give away for now. We still have so much more planned for you – our all new Meeting Area set-up, a co-working space within the venue, and not to mention the unique booths that are being built as we speak (well, as I type – you get my point). We hope you’re ready for all the surprises, we hope you’re ready for what’s to come. If not, well, who the heck is anyway.
