    Behold The Next Web PLAY!
    It is summer time, so we thought it would be a nice idea to throw in a little summer event for, startups, VCs, biz dev people, our readers, conference attendees, sponsors…. Well lets say for people who live and breathe the web a.k.a. for you!

    What?

    The Next Web PLAY is about people, startups and stupid social sports (in this case the highly anticipated French game of Petanque). You play in a team of 2 people (you can bring your co-founder, college, girlfriend or a frenchmen with super petanque skills).

    Where?
    Museumplein (Museum square) Amsterdam

    When?
    Saturday August 23rd. We start at 10am – finals are at 4pm.

    Costs?
    FREE. really? Yes, 0 euros.

    Dresscode:
    Cote d’Azur style (or just startup style and wear your company tees)

    What can I win?
    Weekendjeweg is so nice to give the winner a weekend Brussels, this apart from the eternal bragging rights of course!

    We have room for 50 teams, so sign up fast.

    PLAY is an announcement only event, meaning that each team should announce something (can be company related or personal) in max 140 characters -including the #play tag. I don’t have to tell you what we’ll do with it.
