After the successful edition of Thingscon Amsterdam 2015, we, the organising team, had the idea not to wait until December 2016 to have another get-together with our ‘new things-enthusiasts’. Also we heard a lot of attendees share the pity of only be able to do one of the workshops. That inspired us to plan the Thingscon Salons!
The Thingscon Salon is a monthly meetup organised by the Thingscon Amsterdam team in collaboration with different partners. The fist Salon took place in Amsterdam on April 1, 2016. The second in Rotterdam on May 13. The third again in Amsterdam. The fourth Salon in Eindhoven on smart society, organised together with VPRO Medialab. The Fifth Salon took place in October and had the theme The Internet of Toys. Found the report here.
We will continu with the Salons in 2017. The first took place on 27 January 2017 themed around the intimate interfaces and fashion tech. Check out this report!
Next Salon is planned for March 23 at Makerversity. The makers edition. As soon as we have more information we will share this here. You can already RSVP of course via our Meetup-page.
We also will have an extra Salon at SXSW. Check more on the backgrounds here.
