TOA Berlin gathers momentum… and satellite events2012-08-09 1
TOA Berlin is gaining traction as a growing list of satellite supporting events have been announced. The events, hosted from August 23-24 at Kater Holzig and satellite venues, promise to take a fresh and fun approach to tech events by throwing together an eclectic mix of music, art and startups to make it a mashup of a festival and a conference. Only just managing to scrape together funding in the nick of time, TOA has managed to pull some major sponsors (think Plista, Eventbrite and Amazon, to name a few). Tickets are priced at €99 but go up to €150 closer to the event.
