It's time! Tonight we are having our warmup party – and tomorrow it is already re:publica Dublin! To prevent you from getting lost in Dublin, this is what you need to know about the venues and the schedule of the event in one glimpse.
#rpDUB is taking place in three different venues: The Main Stage is in a venerable 17th-century building, the Smock Alley Theatre. The second stage is located at the Generator Hostel, right next to the Jameson Distillery. This is where we meet for networking and socializing – and for the party, of course. The Merchant's Arch calls itself “Dublin's best bar”. So check out our pub stage number three! More details on getting to the three locations here.
October 19: Warmup
Join us at the grand warmup party of re:publica Dublin at the Generator Hostel tonight, starting 6:30 p.m. We are looking forward to celebrating the very first re:publica abroad with the community from Ireland, Germany and the rest of the world. The warmup will include a brief opening address by the founders of re:publica, of course.
The accreditation for October 20th will already be open, there you can pick up your name badge and wristband for the next day too. In case you haven't got a ticket yet, don't worry. The ticket counter will be open from 6.30 p.m. until 11.30 p.m.
Attention to all people abroad! We don't only have a live transmission to the Irish Embassy in Berlin. If you happen to be in Berlin, join the party at the embassy! More info and registration over here.
October 20: A Bunch of Great Speakers!
On with the show tomorrow, 20 October, and our main event! We have so many inspiring speakers invited for you. For example, Internet pioneer Dennis Jennings, BlockchainHub founder Shermin Voshmgir, Daragh Murray, an expert on issues relating to the law of armed conflict, Rachel O'Dwyer, an Open Data activist and a researcher on our society's consumption and the role of technology, Peter Neumann, a professor of Security Studies at theDepartment of War Studies at King's College London, and many more. See our program for more here.
On Thursday, the event will be distributed over three different locations:
The main stage with 198 seats is located at the Smock Alley Theatre. From 9 a.m. you can find the registration desk for all those who didn't make it to the Generator Hostel the night before – or want to get a ticket last minute. You are welcome to come early, have a cup of coffee and get to know the other re:publica participants. We are looking forward to the grand opening of re:publica Dublin, together with all of you, at 10 a.m.
The Merchant's Arch and the Generator Hostel stages can host sessions for up to 50 people. On both these stages, the programme will starts at 11:15 a.m. Lunch will also be offered in these two venues.
The get-together space for #rpDUB is located in the Generator Hostel. This is also where the sponsors have their booths, and where meetups for more specific topics can take place. The meetups will also be listed in your programme.
Catering & More
All speakers and participants who bought a ticket that includes catering can order drinks and food at the Generator Hostel throughout the main conference day on 20 October. You will also find the chill-out space area, if you need a spot to work in peace, a drink at the bar or just a little rest.
Party, Party, Party
As a finale, there is a gathering in the Generator Hostel bar, where you can conclude the day with a good Irish beer – or a whiskey. Be prepared, we are starting with a Power Point Karaoke! Looking forward to having a good laugh and dance, and celebrating with you!
First we wanted to organize the entire event in different pubs, as a kind of pub crawl. Unfortunately, we realized that there are almost no barrier-free pubs. Now we have only one pub stage – the other two venues are wheelchair-accessible.
October 21: Casual Brunch
No, it's not over yet! On Friday we are meeting up to network and casual brunch at Merchant's Arch from 11 a.m.
