Yesterday the first tickets went on sales for the re:publica – and today almost 300 tickets are already sold! Which means people long for the annual blogger feast next springtime in Berlin from the 14th to he 16th of April in the Friedrichsstadtpalast.
It will be the 4th time only that it takes place, yet the number of visitors has risen exponentially every year and the ticket sales of next year’s event show that this trend seems to continue.
Main organisers of the event are (again) Markus Beckedahl @netzpolitik and Johnny Häussler @spreeblick. Markus’ Blog about politics, current affairs and social media/ internet belongs to the best known ones in the German speaking blogosphere, and also Johnny’s blog Spreeblick is one of the most linked and read in the German blogosphere.
Last year was the first time I attended the re:publica and despite some simply conference-typical things like WLAN-downtime it was an absolute great and greatly organised event. Anyone who’d like to take a glimpse should make his or her way to Berlin – should you get bored with too much German language on the conference then Berlin is worth a visit as well.
There were quite a lot of international visitors and speakers last year,
though, and it might be more in 2010 since the re:publica will also host The Bobs – the International Blog Awards run by Deutsche Welle.
Book your ticket and join in – the re:publica and Berlin are definitely worth a trip!
Update: Early-Bird-Blogger-Tickets gone within 24hours – didn’t I tell you 😉
