Sometimes it’s hard to keep your work life and private life separate. At TNW, we’re all for merging the two together and finding a balance. As our CEO Boris said last year, bringing your kids to work can be a great learning opportunity.

It’s also a great lesson for us adults. Promoting inclusivity reminds us that being a parent doesn’t make you any less of a badass in the office.

Of course, it’s not always possible to bring your kids along — like when you’re attending a huge tech conference in Amsterdam.

That’s why we’re offering free childcare at TNW Conference in May. Just like last year, we’re providing a free onsite creche on both days of the conference. If your kids are 6 months to 12 years in age, our team of nannies are there to look after them. We’ve created a fun, safe space for your children to play and learn.

But what about in the evenings? Some of the best networking happens at night — whether it’s a partner dinner, an after-party, or just drinks with new acquaintances. That’s why we’re going one step further this year.

To make sure working parents don’t miss out on late-night networking, we’re partnering with Holiday Sitters — a startup offering certified babysitters that speak a combined total of twenty-one languages and come from an abundance of different cultures. They’re providing 100 hours of free babysitting, and a 15 percent discount for when those hours have been used up. And if you’d rather leave your kids at the hotel during the conference, Holiday Sitters has you covered.

How do I sign up?

The free onsite creche will be open on both days of TNW Conference, from 8am to 6pm. The creche is suitable for children aged 6 months to 12 years old. If you would like to book a complimentary babysitter after 6pm, Holiday Sitters is happy to provide. All ticket holders will receive an email in a week’s time, indicating how to sign up for both options.

Keep an eye out for the signup information, being sent soon via email to all ticket holders.
