The TNW Conference is finally just around the corner! Get ready for inspiring speakers, insightful talks, networking opportunities, and some seriously fun vibes.

The event venue is full of amazing spots — so grab the conference’s floor plan and check out those that you simply can’t miss:

1. The stages

Make sure to visit the conference’s stages: Vision, Ignite, Discovery, and Growth Quarters.

You’ll get to attend some thought-provoking sessions on business growth, finance, AI, and technological disruptions.

And don’t forget about the TNW Talks stages, where you can talk in-person with leading tech figures, such as Jason Silva, a renowned filmmaker and futurist, and Seth Dobrin, IBM’s Chief AI Officer.

2. The lounges

Whether you want to network, invest, or seek job opportunities, there’s a dedicated lounge to do so.

3. The expo floor

Wander around the expo floor to meet more than 40 exhibitors from the tech industry.

There you can also end your first day with the Booth Crawl from 18:00 to 20:00. Exhibitors will offer you a free drink at their booth, where you can get to know them and their company.

4. The food stands

Don’t forget to fuel up with some delicious (or “lekker” in Dutch) food options. You’ll find pasta, tacos, hot dogs, crepes, and futuristic burgers.

And the best part? All food stalls will only serve locally-sourced, vegetarian-only meals. That’s to reduce CO2 emissions and help save large amounts of fresh water and land.

5. The FT Garden

This is THE spot for entertainment! In the afternoon of June 17, you can enjoy the swinging tunes of Pierre et Les Optimistes. The FT Garden is also the location of the closing party on the same day, starting from 17:00, with Keezus Christus and Team Disco Snolly on the decks. Bring your best disco moves!

6. The ferris wheel

Need I say more? There’s a ferris wheel right after the entrance, in which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the conference and the surrounding ports!
