2014 flashback – #TFPARTY at Slush with pics and video
One of the most memorable moments of 2014 for Transfluent was the Slush conference in Helsinki, Finland in November. We had a strong presence, with our founder Jani speaking on stage about our vision of the future, and the whole team answering questions from interested audience at our amazingly busy demo booth.
To top it off, Transfluent hosted the official closing party of Slush, dubbed #TFPARTY, which saw over 5000 people party to the early morning hours across 13 unique bars and restaurants. The main venue, Kaiku, was just recently named as one of the best nightclubs in Europe! Twitter quickly exploded with appreciation from many of the great people who attended the event:
“Thank you #slush14 for the awesome two days and great #TFPARTY! Feeling really happy & extremely tired now, somehow a bit like #wappu :)” tweeted @Gnomet. “Well, just a quick stop as the #TFPARTY has taken over the entire Kallio District” reported @mikafilm. While dozens of others agreed with @didriksteinsson who noticed the terrific synergy of the party and the overall event when he tweeted “Slush has been great! @MureVr enjoying #tfparty to the max!”
As the focal point for many Eurasian start-ups and top tech talent seeking likeminded entrepreneurs to collaborate with, Slush has skyrocketed from a small 300 person event only a few years ago to a wildly successful show that now brings more than 14,000 attendees from 2,500 companies together, and Transfluent is proud to enhance these connections by providing an exciting space for people to network with each other while getting to know everyone on a more meaningful interpersonal level.
For anyone who missed the opportunity to attend last year, here is a sneak peak at what went on to whet your appetite in the hope that you’ll be part of Slush 2015 where the excitement, entertainment and entrepreneurship of this amazing gathering is sure to burn even brighter:
