- We need to be able to give ourselves a rough estimate of the amount of attendees ahead of time, so we can make sure the caterer prepares enough food for everyone to enjoy. Free signups tend to make that number a bit less reliable. We want to make sure there is enough food to go around for everyone attending!
- Stress-free financials on the night of the dinner! We all know the effects of Belgian Beer on arithmetic skills. Flash your ticket, get your food.
- Costs went up a lot this year, especially due to the catering we now have (expect very good food!). Therefore we had to raise the ticket prices as well as had to find a couple more sponsors to keep ticket prices reasonably low
Wondering how to get there from Fosdem?
The venue itself is located very close to the VUB. You can find the route to get there right here.
The total distance from the ULB campus is about 2.3km, so you could walk there, but it might be more comfortable to take the tram.
Tram 7 and 25 depart from the “Cambre Etoile” stop regularly (every few minutes), and will take you up to “Hansen-Soulie”, where you need to get out, and walk the remaining 200m. The tram ride takes about 9 minutes.
