Changes in Demodays Organizing / No Demodays 2015

category: parties [glöplog]
A message from Unlock/Vantage:
After 12 years of being the main organizer of the Demodays and the Buenzli demoparties I decided to take a step back. A step back from the responsibility, a step back from the huge time investment and a step back from my engagement with the event: I will not push the Demodays as the main organizer anymore. I will, however, stay part of the awesome team and take a small share of the organizing duties when needed. After all these years, this has not been an easy decision. The Demodays have become an important part of my life. After the great events of the past few years, I decided to leave on a high note.
Unfortunately, I have to tell you that there will be no Demodays 2015. The whole Demodays team and the «Echtzeit» association is taking a break and starts rebuilding for something refurbished in 2016. Details are yet unclear - please stay tuned!

Thanks for all the nice Swiss parties we could enjoy during the last years. Looking forward to 2016 already!
That's kind of sad news. I second what saga said.
And of course: Thank you.

Thank you and the whole team for everything. I guess we'll just all stop by at your door the weekend after Evoke.

Right guys?

Since Unlock did such an awesome job with editing the Meteoriks awards it seems only fair that my first trip to demodays should be a big fondue at his place. I never caught your adress tho?

@ATW: Ghetto Days 2015?

lol Moqui....

with respect to buenzli, which I myself never visited (what I regret now)...
ehhhm No :-)

we slowly take over the re-atw-ision ;-P
But don't tell dfox ^^

hehehe, but back to topic

sad to hear.
But I think I only seen a blink of what it takes to organize a party and say "great job in the past!" if you took the effort to do it for several years...

qapla / god speed
for all your next projects!

Cheers mate!

Thanks unlock for doing such an awesome job with the past Demodays/Bünzus. It is highly appreciated!

Thank you everybody for the nice feedback! It was always been a pleasure to organize the events for you. And it always has been a team effort, it wasn't me alone doing it. I'm confident there will be something going on in the future! Stay tuned :)

The only positive thing is that this year, I won't have to deal with my wife being in a demoparty on our wedding anniversary day....

A few of us locals have been grumbling about lack of Demodays for most of the year (in full understanding of @unlock and team doing what they have to do), and were finally grieved enough to rent a cinema in Bern to host a mini-party. unlock and Soundy have been very supportive of the idea, but we could use more helping hands to put together a programme, make announcements, set up a scene-licious space. We're meeting up for lunch in Bern this Friday and might swing by the space after. Thoughts? Interest? Leave a note here or post to buerpteam at soda.camp
