Fire. Lights. Action! Slush 2016 is officially OPEN.
Lasers and fire burning all around him, musician Max Lilja revved up the audience with battle hymn sounds before Marianne Vikkula and Nicolas Dolenc burst onto the stage to open Slush 2016 and welcome over 17,000 people from 124 countries for two epic days in Helsinki.
After 35 events all over the world, including in Tokyo, Shanghai, and Singapore among others, the biggest and final event of the year is finally here. The schedule is crazy and so is the atmosphere.
You can feel the energy through the livestream at 2016.slush.org
And that’s not all. For the first time, the dates for next year’s Slush have been announced: Nov.30th-Dec. 1st, 2017. Book your calendars.
But for now, Slush 2016, here we go!
