- Access to the Business Lounge
Those who want to escape re:publica’s festival hubbub can head to the centrally located VIP lounge and use its calm atmosphere to conduct business or just hang out with old friends and new acquaintances and enjoy the catering with the re:publica 2015 speakers.
- Continuous catering during all three days
Four meals (breakfast, lunch, afternoon cakes, snack in the evening) as well as soft drinks, coffee and tea are included in the Business Ticket and are available throughout the day in the VIP lounge. All warm meals are freshly prepared by the STATION BERLIN kitchens and, of course, vegetarian options are also available.
Compared to regular tickets, Business Tickets are transferable. For companies this means that colleagues can alternate attendance by sharing the company ticket. This way everyone can take in the re:publica atmosphere and become inspired, conduct meetings on location or let staff members with specific skill sets attend corresponding thematic focal areas during the conference.
This last point may be the deciding factor in the purchase of a Business Ticket because it helps to ensure that re:publica can, thanks to its reasonable ticket costs, remain “The DAVOS of the people”, as once phrased by Jeff Jarvis. The unique heterogeneity of the audience is what makes re:publica so exciting and inspiring, especially for business professionals. Those who want an honest answer to questions, such as how good product X or service Y is, will ask the re:publica participants – the veteran teacher enjoying the sunshine in the courtyard or the student hacker having a late night drink at the bar. You may even find that new coder or that needed designer for your business!
