WSA and TTA present at PICNIC ’06

The World Summit Award (WSA) and Top Talent Award 2006 (TTA) will be present at the Cross Media Week PICNIC ’06 in Amsterdam. PICNIC '06 is Amsterdam's new annual event focused on creativity in cross media content and technology, specifically in the fields of entertainment and communication. The event will take place from September 27 - 29 at the Westergasfabriek, a cultural facility located in a former gas factory in Amsterdam.

The list of participants is growing fast. Participating industry associations and cultural institutions include: Alternate Reality Gaming Network, Amsterdam International Fashion Week, Association of Dutch Advertisers (BVA), Association of Dutch Communications Agencies (VEA), Association of Dutch Designers (BNO), Association of Full-Service Dutch Internet Agencies (PIBN), Berkeley Cybersalon, Chinese Radio, Club of Amsterdam, Dutch Dialogue Marketing Association (DDMA), East of England Multimedia Alliance, European Archive, European Journalism Centre, Europrix Top Talent Award, Federation of European Direct and Interactive Marketing (FEDMA), Global IT Association for Telecommunications (ETIS), Immovator Cross Media Network, Innovatieveiling, Interactive Professional Association Netherlands (IPAN), International Advertising Association (IAA) Netherlands, Internet Society (ISOC) Netherlands, Kendra Initiative, Mediagilde, Mediamatic, MultimediaN, Nederlands Instituut voor Marketing (NIMA), Orange Alert Dutch Design NYC, Paradiso, Stichting Internet Reclame (STIR), Syntens, Virtual Institute for Research into Media Culture Amsterdam (VIRMA), Virtueel Platform, World Summit Award, Utrecht School of the Arts and Waag Society.

The WSA and the TTA will be present at the PICNIC ’06 and participate with a combined roadshow, showing the 40 awards of WSA 2005 and the awards of the TTA 2005. In fact it will be the first time that the WSA and TTA road shows give a combined presentation.

PICNIC ’06 will include a conference for paying delegates as well as a public program which includes lectures, an exhibition, art installations and parties. PICNIC ’06 is being supported by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the City of Amsterdam and a variety of corporate and service partners.

I am wondering whether any of the visitors to the blog from Thaniland, Portuagl, Denmark, Sweden, USA, Australia, Germany, Argentina, Poland, canada or Hong Kong (see map in the first column) will be there. If you plan to attend to PICNIC '06, please let me know.
