PINC Conference 2013


Standing for People, Ideas, Nature and Creativity, PINC is a unique gathering that plays host to curious innovators annually in the Netherlands. 

Taking place in Zeist, this "handmade conference" began in 1999 to stimulate people, create ideas and make conections. 

Participants will flock to the Netherlands to take part in this conference for curious, like-minded people who believe inspiration is a key force in both life and work. 

The dimensional edition of this conference of creativity will feature a group of 16 international experts. 

With multi-dimensional backgrounds spanning from authors to archaeologists, dancers to designers, surgeons to social media gurus, these keynote speakers were chosen for their passion and drive. 

The experienced specialists seek to share a wealth of information with open-minded audience members. In an effort to generate multi-dimensional participation, members of the congress will also involve the audience during their lecture. 

Aside from the informative talks, both the public and speakers can enjoy short culinary and theatrical intermezzos throughout the day.

A tasty buffet dinner will follow the congress, as will an opportunity to mix, mingle and network with other participants in an effort to exchange thoughts across disciplines.
