PICNIC is three inspiring days of ideas, fun and sensory stimulation in media technology, entertainment, art and science. Come and inspire others.

The PICNIC Conference is a high-level plenary meeting of bright, creative minds. The world’s best media entrepreneurs, thinkers and creators share their stories. The buzzing heart of the action, the conference attracts more than 1,500 delegates from all over the world for series of groundbreaking sessions. A full conference pass costs 1245 Euro ex VAT and for that you get everything: access to all events, lunch, party, the whole she-bang.

The PICNIC Specials are focussed seminars, lectures and round table discussions that dive deeper into the PICNIC themes. The Specials attract thousands of people, and actively involve media labs, research groups, professional associations, cultural networks, innovation departments and educational institutions to share their latest insights. A day pass costs 95 Euro ex VAT, and with one you can attend any or all of that day's specials from 9 in the morning until 22 in the evening. The pass includes a lunch voucher and a ticket to PICNIC's closing party.

The PICNIC Labs are practical workshops that challenge you to re-imagine your business, develop new products and services, refine ideas and formats and come up with creative business concepts. Products and services developed here will get feedback from experts, and a selection will be demonstrated at PICNIC. The labs are free for those that take part...

The PICNIC Club is this year's central hub at PICNIC and will be the buzzing heart of the action. In the PICNIC Club you can take a tour and see the labs in action, do business in the Creative Business Lounge powered by the Amsterdam Chamber of Commerce and on Friday, take part in the PICNIC Idea Machine.

Access to the PICNIC Club is 15 Euro, tickets on the door. PICNIC at Night - Join us for Europe's hottest cross media party on Friday 26 September. Tickets: 15 Euro - free entry for anyone with a PICNIC pass.

This dizzying festival of ideas will also include top class entertainment, public lectures and master classes, art performances, demo sessions and pitch events, games, challenges and awards, press conferences and product launches, and a spectacular closing party.
