LateCrunch – the official Web 2.0 Expo Europe after-party in Berlin, by TechCrunch UK

TechCrunch UK is throwing a networking party for European startups called “LateCrunch”, in conjunction with Web 2 Expo Berlin (21-23 October). The event will be on Thursday 23rd October, the last night of the Expo, and it’s going to be the official “after-party” for Web 2 Expo. It will start at 10pm and go until 5am. We want this to be a cool, fun event for people to hang out with each other, meet startups and create the real beginnings of an amazing tech scene across Europe. We are releasing the first tranche of tickets today (Tuesday 30th September). We have pre-released a limited amount already, aimed at our targetted list of startups, VCs and entrepreneurs, in order to ensure the party is packed with startups. All further details about the event will appear on TechCrunch UK first. So if you want to be the first to get a ticket then subscribe to the RSS feed, the official Twitter feed @techcrunchuk, and/or Mike Butcher’s (Editor, TechCrunch UK) personal Twitter account @mbites.

23rd October 2008 from 22.00 hours until 5am.

Attendee identification will be checked at the door. Due to the strong demand for tickets, we regret tickets are not transferable and not refundable. If you use your name to purchase multiple tickets, your guests must arrive with you to check in at the door. There is a small 15 Euro fee for tickets in order to allay costs and prevent no-shows.
