Spring is already here, but Germany’s national social web spring will be kicked again traditionally by the main convention re:publica in Berlin. From May 2 to 4, 2012, the big, fat web summit aka #rp12 initially occupies a new venue. After more than 3,000 bloggers, geeks, nerds, webgrrls and their friends and families, in 2011, the fresh re:publica enterprise which was recently founded, decided to go the step ahead and will enter the breathtaking location STATION-Berlin with its historical halls of the former „Postbahnhof“ at Berlin Gleisdreieck S-Bahn station –

 [It] will provide the setting for Europe’s most exciting, inspiring and enjoyable conference about social media, blogs and digital society […] [with] an agenda reflecting the freshest minds, stories, and subjects from all over the world. […] After five prosperous years, re:publica will reinvent itself once more.

As the the organisation committee has already dropped some details, the upcoming event will be probably more exciting than ever!

Some regular tickets are still available starting at EUR 130 for a three-day pass. Additionally the exclusive business tickets including lounge access, delicious slow food, and high speed registration (i.e. joining #rp12 straight ahead) are offered for EUR 500 fee each.
