The Next Web Conference 2009
We are very happy to announce The Next Web Conference 2010 today. This fifth edition will be held on 27, 28 and 29 April, 2010 in the heart of the European technology scene (well at least for that week) and the city we love so much: Amsterdam . The Next Web Conference has become a must for everyone for whom the web plays a significant role for their businesses.
TechCrunch Europe is proud to announce the first tranche of events we’re planning this year.

Registration is open: Humanity+, UK 2010 The Humanity+, UK 2010 conference, to be held in central London on Saturday 24th April, will be tackling some big questions: How will accelerating technological change effect human mental and physical capabilities? What opportuntities and problems will these changes bring? How will these changes impact the environment? How will society, political leaders and institutions react?

March 18 – 20, 2010 Concept ElectroSmog is a new festival that revolves around the concept Sustainable Immobility. The festival will introduce and explore this concept in theory and practice. With Sustainable Immobility we refer to a critique of current systems of hyper mobility of people and products in travel and transport, and their ecological unsustainability.
While London is regarded as the centre of Europe’s tech start-up scene, it hasn’t yet produced the number of internationally respected, big-name companies it could have. If start-ups had somewhere central to work, hold meetings, collaborate and just hang out maybe things could be different. That’s the idea behind TechHub , a project that plans to create a co-working environment for Europe’s start-ups in the heart of London.
