In less than two months, on May 15th, 2012, a spin-off of one of our favorite conferences, will be launched in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
On May 15th the PICNIC people will kick the new summit PICNIC Innovation Mash Up for the first time.
What is the PICNIC Innovation Mash Up? Read the description from the lips of the crew behind (or so) –
The PICNIC Innovation Mash Up will be a one-day, active learning event focused on “how”: how businesses in traditional sectors can successfully apply top innovation processes used by Dutch and international creative industry professionals to launch new products and services, connect with customers and grow. […] PICNIC’s twist: creative industry experts will lead the event, coaching, collaborating and contributing valuable expertise, ideas and feedback.
The May event is somehow a kind of pre- before main event (in September). It mainly addresses the creative industries and business as well as non profits, government, higher education and science and technology.
The single-day agenda at the Dutch capital will have a plenary session and break-out workshops as well as matchmaking sessions.
Now it’s your turn: If you get your ticket before end of March you will still get the early bird ticket rate of EUR 250 which would mean a saving of EUR 50 in comparison to the regular rate of EUR 300.
