Pitching Session
During the week we have added another interesting event to the programme – the “GoComm Pitching and Networking Sessions.” They will offer start-ups and other projects with interest in approaching development from new perspectives, to pitch their ideas in front of a panel of development experts. If you are interested in pitching, look here for more information, or visit the Facebook event page.

If you are attending the conference, we recommend taking a look at the venue and travel pages on the website. They offer practical advice on for example how to find the way to the venues.
