There are lots of things to explore at the #rp17: it goes without saying that besides the regular programme of discussions, talks, meetups and workshops, we have a variety of activities in store for you! The re:publica track is home to everything this year’s supporting programme has to offer – from relaxing tea tastings over icebreaker games to dance sessions!

Since many of these very special sessions aren’t displayed in the timetable, here’s a quick overview (aka the what-when-where) of all the activities and other exciting and surprising things happening off-stage during the #rp17: 
 

pre:publica
The pre:publica is here for everyone who doesn’t want to settle for just the three days of re:publica, or anyone who prefers a more relaxed accreditation with drinks and snacks. On Sunday, 7th May, you can visit the courtyard at the STATION Berlin from 4pm to 9pm and pick up your #rp17 admission wristbands and badges before the big rush starts on Monday. Is this your first re:publica? Then come to the Newbies Meetup at 16.30pm @infopoint by the main entrance!
