Blender Conference 2018: 25 - 26 - 27 October


The date of this year's Blender Conference has been announced: 25 - 26 - 27 October. Unlike previous years, this means it starts on Thursday and ends on Saturday, with Sunday being the 'Open House' in the new Blender HQ.

When: 25 - 26 - 27 October.
That is on Thursday/Friday/Saturday.

Where: De Balie, Amsterdam
We had a reservation for another much bigger venue, but they cancelled last minute (a daily TV show gets it). Although we get compensated for that, it doesn't help... all other bigger venues in Amsterdam need to be reserved at least a year in advance. De Balie still is a fantastic place to hangout, and you bet - the lunch will get extra special attention now.

What changes: we start a day earlier! Thursday 25th October is the opening day and the Suzanne Animation Festival. Friday evening is the dinner/party. Saturday we wrap at 18:00h. Sunday 28th is the "open house" in the new Blender HQ (no activity program yet).

Call for proposals & tickets: coming soon!
