Almost everything you might be interested in. From transport to networking ...
1. Who is the EVOLVE! Summit for?
The conference is suitable for experienced audience as well as for newcomers to the field. It is aimed for all those who want to be kept up to date with news from the HR world and recruitment, as these areas are constantly evolving. Whether you are a CEO, an HR professional, a headhunter, a recruiter or a sourcer, this conference is the right event for you.
2. What’s included in the price of the tickets and are the tickets transferable?
The ticket includes:
– two-day full of lectures
– accompanying program including afterparty with live music (12th of November)
– coffee breaks, lunches and dinner including beer & wine on 12th of November
– videos from lectures
– special codes or discounts from partners
Each ticket is tied to a name and is non-transferable, and thus valid for the ticket owner only. The conference is prepared as a whole and the individual parts of the two-day programme are often connected. It would be a shame to experience just a half of it!
3. I would like to become a partner of this event or open an exhibition stand there. Who should I contact?
4. How can I reach the conference on public transport?
SONO Centrum is a multi-purpose cultural center that’s just a short hop from downtown. If you start from the main train station, you’ll be there in less than 15 minutes overall. Start by stepping onto tram 4 or 12, ride it to the Česká stop, switch to tram 3 or 11, and ride that to the Tábor stop. From there it’s a few short steps to SONO Centrum. For tram schedules, check HERE. Don’t worry; this site is available in English.
5. How can I arrive by car, and where can I park?
Parking at the SONO Centrum won’t be possible this year, as the garage will serve as the conference underground zone. However, you may use the parking available next to it, in the Platinium building, or the parking place across the Sono Center, parking Veveří, Janáčkovo divadlo, Domini Park, Rozmarýn or in the nearby side streets.
