What is the Icebreaker Session?

The Icebreaker session takes place on the evening before the event starts.

Just when everyone arrives, we are inviting you to join us for some early networking and give you the chance to settle in the atmosphere of the event. This is the time and place to share your thought-provoking ideas and get things off an interesting start. Glass in hand, make your way around the round tables, discuss and network with the speakers and business partners. We invite you to a unique location and allow you to get to know your fellow conferences attendees in a relaxed and interactive setting.

Break the ice and get the show on the road!

Do you want to network with your peers?

Do you want to digest the day and your key findings?

Do you want to sit back & connect with your new acquaintances?

Relax after the first conference day and begin a great evening with drinks, food and bubbly networking at a special location. The simply perfect combination of

an inspiring atmosphere and the right people launch you into the second day.

Bits, Bites & Bubbles is THE place for you!

Save yourself a spot at the evening events! Please be aware that in case you already completed the booking procedure for our evening events or if you should have a partner Ticket no further steps are required.

Welcome to Detroit

Welcome to Detroit: the friendly, walkable, vibrant city that’s perfect for your next weekend getaway. The city’s energy is infectious, and you will be amazed by all there is to see and do. Forbes notes: “Ever-evolving Detroit surprises and surprises again.”

Detroit is the largest city in Michigan and rests in Wayne County. It is a major port city on the Detroit River and is known as the world’s traditional auto center. The auto industry and famous music scene has earned it the nicknames The Motor City and Motown. Aside from the obvious nicknames, others have been developed over the years such as Detroit Rock City after the famous Kiss song, The D, D-Town, and Hockeytown after the native NHL team the Detroit Red Wings.
