Social events at the Wikimedia Conference 2014:

Dinner snack and WMCon Party

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Starting at 6 p.m. dinner snacks and drinks will be provided at WMDE’s office and event space to meet, chat and to toast to a wonderful conference weekend.

Friday, April 11, 2014

After the end of the first conference day (around 6 p.m.), snacks and drinks will be waiting for you at WMDE’s office and event space. Afterwards, you have the chance to demonstrate your vocal talents. A karaoke machine will be at your disposal to groove to your favorite disco songs (title list, artist list) or to cheer to your singing friends. The stage is of course open for any other cultural contribution.

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Let’s have a party and round off Saturday in a club, with music and snacks. On Saturday starting at 7 p.m. we would like to take you out to Frannz Club at the Kulturbrauerei. We are excited about celebrating with you at this special venue, as it is one of the few well-preserved examples of industrial architecture in Berlin, a former brewery, dating from the end of the 19th century. We will begin the evening with dinner and drinks offered at the Frannz Club. A DJ will enhance the atmosphere with classic disco hits and get you in the dancing mood.

Sunday, April 13, 3014

A last dinner at WMDE’s office and event space will be provided as of 6 p.m. to round off the Wikimedia Conference 2014.
