A Belgian web conference

Announcing twiist, a web conference in Leuven, Belgium.

On Filip Bunkens and I organize an affordable one-day conference for like-minded web creatives in Leuven, Belgium.


May 15th, Provinciehuis Leuven. Easy to reach by public transport and close to Brussels.


We love conferences, no seriously, we love the inspiring atmosphere at some conferences. The feeling that you must try this little gem or play with that idea you overheard or even better: the feeling that you met a ton of interesting people you want to invite for coffee and involve in your next great web, smartphone or whatever app or design.

One problem though: most of these conferences are too expensive for normal people (@media for example) or too far away (SXSW). A few years ago, the ClearLeft folks started something small and inspiring in Brighton, UK: called dConstruct. We have been loyal participants ever since. As there is nothing like this in Belgium, we thought it would be nice to have something similar closer to home.


This is the best part. I’m impressed with the line-up we gathered, people like Aral Balkan, Serge Jespers, Drew McLellan, Chris Messina, Elliot Jay Stocks, Brian Suda and Glenn Jones already confirmed!


No plans for the 15th yet? Get a conference pass for €100 (excl. VAT) and say hi when you find the most stressful person at the venue.

Oh, by the way, the conference will be in English only. It’s how Belgians organize something if there will be Dutch and French speaking people.
