  • Michel Wacker

Good news for all conference lovers:

<head> web conference is coming to Switzerland. From the 24th to the 26th of October we'll host a so called hub at our office in Fribourg where attendees can gather, exchange ideas and knowledge and, of course, watch life streams of the conference sessions. Plus, Liip is giving away 5 tickets to join the hub Fribourg for free (further details below)!

head web conference: October 24-26, 2008

But what actually is the <head> conference?

<head> is the first large scale and global conference that completely takes place on the internet. For three days, over 70 speakers from all over the world will present on design and development topics in a whole lot of interesting sessions. The sessions can be watched on any computer with a highspeed internet connection or at a conference hub together with your colleagues, friends and brain mates.

Now that you know what <head> is, we would love to see you join the hub at our office in Fribourg. Here are some details on where and when:
