Family Programme

Our family programme – simply called Family – consist of activities options that are more or less organized. We will also set up hang-out areas and an activity board for families in both conference locations.

Some of the activities are part of the Get Together social programme for all conference attendees, whereas some activities are for family members only.

In our Adventurous Wednesday programme, you will find family-friendly options to choose from. In addition to a separate activity for teens.
