A first look at evening activities

Interaction14 wouldn’t be the same without some vibrant parties and evening activities. With Interaction14 just two months away, it’s time we talk you through the social program we’ve cooked up for you.

Wednesday: Meet up at our Welcome Party

Whether it’s your first Interaction conference or your seventh, the Welcome Party will make you feel at home. Catch up with old friends and finally meet all those peers you only know by Twitter handle. The party takes place in De Bazel, an inspiring art deco landmark – an excellent start for an equally inspiring conference.
