One of the main things we are missing in these times are the social aspects of being at a showcase festival. The chats in the bars after hours where new relations are being created and new business ideas are created. Since we can't meet in person this year we invite you to join our virtual bars where you can hang and chat about whatever you'd like or maybe join a watch party in the evenings. Pick a bar and start chatting away!
