After a successful BENL FIRE Meetup in Leuven Belgium, we already started planning for the next one! We (Amber Tree Leaves and us) decided to visit Utrecht once again. So we hooked up with a great venue and secured our spot in June. It’s time for a second BENL FIRE Meetup – Utrecht Edition! This will be our 6th FIRE meetup already.
BENL FIRE Meetup – Utrecht Edition!
Utrecht is a great place with a very fun City Centre. If you want to join, and/or are coming from afar, it’s probably worth to make it into a long weekend and explore the city. On that note, we secured the venue for Saturday June 30, 2018, but we still have the option to make it into a weekend event too. Depends on your enthusiasm and the number of registration we receive. The venue has a maximum capacity of 50 people!
We already send out an email on last Thursday to the peeps on our distribution list. We now already have more than 20 confirmations to date! It’s just great to see that these meetups are appreciated and that people really like to come. Makes it worth it for us to continue these events 🙂
As per “usual”, the following applies:
- You are free to come and go as you please;
- The venue is easy to reach with both public transport and car;
- The costs will depend on the number of people attending, but is usually in the order of €10-15/day (including drinks and snacks but excluding lunch/dinner);
- It is mandatory to have a good time 🙂
What Are We planning?
The general program for Saturday looks something like this:
- 10:00 – 12:00: Warm welcome, informal chats and perhaps some financial speed dating again;
- 12:00 – 14:00: Brown Bag lunch at the venue (or elsewhere if you prefer)
- 14:00 – 18:00: Presentations and discussions;
- 18:00 – 19:00: Dinner at the venue (we can order in food or bring some ourselves to heat up on the kitchen); and,
- 19:00 – 21:30: Beers and other drinks + more informal chats.
As it looks now, we will have a presentation about crowd-funding. However, there is room for one to two more presentations on Saturday! What would you like see or would you like to present? Let us know!
So, Do YOU Want To Join?
If the answer is YES, please drop us or Amber Tree Leaves a comment/email (info @ “ourblogname”.nl) and we will add you to the (ever growing) distribution list. Hope to see you all in Utrecht!
