Organization

Talks in all conference halls will begin at 10:00, so we ask that you arrive on time. Looking for a place to sit after a talk has started will not only disturb our speakers, but also your fellow audience members.

If you haven't decided what to see yet, you should check out the conference program and then, build your own.

Free Wi-Fi will be available for all conference attendees.

We will mainly be speaking English (and a bit of Czech) at this year’s WebExpo. The Great Hall will be English-only, and Lucerna Cinema will be introduced simultaneously in both Czech and English. Talks in the Lucerna Music Bar will not be translated to English or Czech.

Food and coffee

A morning snack will be served for free in the Lucerna Great Hall. This will include sweet baked goods from Bakeland and conference partner Rohlik.cz. You won’t miss out on your daily vitamins thanks to this certified conference trio: bananas, grapes, & apples. Water, coffe from Doubleshot and tea prepared by LMC will be also free. Coffee and water will be serving in front of every conference hall.

Lunch for all conference attendees is for subsidize price. You will find booths in the Lucerna Great Hall from around about 11:00. Both vegetarian and meat options will be available including soups, baguettes, salads, sushi, and coconuts (yes, coconuts!).

If you’re craving something else: we have also arranged the possibility to have lunch in the restaurant ROOM (about 200 meters from Lucerna Passage). We have also added other nearby lunch spots to our Foursquare map. We recommend making reservations during lunchtime.

Where exactly should we meet? You can use the Great Hall as a main meeting point.

The Back Stage isn’t backstage

In the Great Hall, you will also find the Back Stage for workshops and networking. On Friday, Credo Venture will be there to talk with you about your startup (and more!), and the Česká spořitelna hackathon is planned for Saturday.

Microsoft will showcase premium devices for Windows (phones and computers), and MSD has put together a classic game of Jeopardy! for a chance to win three portable power banks. Feast on O2 muffines while chatting with their online specialists about eKasa, or consult Google experts for tips on how to set up Google Analytics and Ads.

Drop by the CA, Credo Ventures, Concur and STRV stands for a small snack or just to relax before entering the competition organized by Ataccama and Heureka! But whatever you do, make sure you don't miss IBM's stand for a meet and greet with the Watson robot.

Party & Networking

The Warm-up party starts on Thursday 22.9 at La Loca Music Bar & Lounge at 18:30 (Odborů 278/4, Prague 2). There will be a welcome drink for the first 200 people. Before all the fun, Kino Lucerna will be screening the documentary, Design Disruptors.

Listen carefully

When you register, you will get a printed program with all our talks. On the back, we’ll be playing a game of Conference Buzzword Bingo. Your card will have five rows and five columns. Cross off any words or phrases you hear during a talk, discussion or chat!

It’s not necessary to cross out the entire card - there are 25 boxes! All you need to win is a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line.

You can stop by any info point once your bingo card is filled. If you win during a party, send a DM to @webexpo on Twitter, and we’ll tweet you back.

The first 50 winners have a chance to take home a license for Sketch (10x) or Jetbrains (10x), books by our speakers, and other great prizes from our partners.

We honor fair play!
