  • Come join us for some drinks — with a serious twist. Bar Broker is not your regular bar with fixed prices. Here, everything fluctuates so you have to keep your eyes on the ‘shot’ market. Gin Tonic for 1 euro? A vodka shot for 2 euro? Anything can happen.

    If you don’t want to take the risk, that’s fine too. Just show your conference badge and we’ll give you the fixed, discounted price. So come and join us at Bar Broker for some drinks and a bit of fun.
