Danish Tech Festival TechBBQ has been growing in participation numbers year by year, but this year's festival is undoubtedly going to be something completely different, as this year the Festival is forced to think of new solutions.

"Adapting to the current situation while still bringing the community a valuable event also means trying something new this year: TechBBQ Digital," announced the TechBBQ team.

The Goal Still Within Reach
TechBBQ's focus and goal has, since its beginning in 2012, been "to bring together the Danish and Nordic startup ecosystems under one roof to showcase our entrepreneurs and companies and show the world that the Nordic Way of doing things can work for everyone".

COVID Restrictions
The health and safety of TechBBQ’s team, startups, partners, and attendees is something the team need to prioritise. "We understand that hosting a live event with 8000+ attendees from around the world is not currently a viable or responsible option," states the TechBBQ team.

As a consequence of the Danish legislation, TechBBQ cannot go ahead with their event as originally planned. Any events where several thousand people will be gathered are not allowed.

TechBBQ have therefore decided to postpone the physical event until next year. They have dedicated time to answer any "questions that might pop up" in the hopes of accommodating the needs of all who would have attended this year's festival.

TechBBQ Digital
TechBBQ Digital will be hosted two months from now, on September 17th and 18th 2020. "We have decided to keep September 2020 something to look forward to" said the TechBBQ team.

Ticket registration, alongside an announcement of the program and platforms, will begin in just two weeks, on August 1st 2020.

We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
