Hey everyone, I'm very pleased to announce the successor to last year's wildly succesful first Evesterdam meetup! In 2013 we had around 150 people meet up in a bar to talk Eve, making us one of the largest Eve events in the Europe. This year we're going bigger and better!

We have a beautiful venue where we will hold presentations, we will have more developers (confirmed: CCP Guard, CCP Falcon, CCP Leeloo!), more prizes and more Amsterdam than before. We also have a brand new website! Additionally, every attende will receive an Evesterdam tshirt!

The programme is:

11:30 – Welcome to Evesterdam by Dierdra Vaal
12:30 – The Eve Economy by TheSmokingHertog
13:30 – Evenews24 by Bobmon
14:30 - Inside the CSM by corebloodbrothers
15:30 – Red Frog Freight by Gnaeus Crassus
16:30 – Hulkageddon by Helicity Boson
17:30 – Prize draw! by Dierdra Vaal and CCP devs! Prizes include PLEXes, pirate faction BS pack and more!

We've also released our Alliance Tournament commercial, which you can find here!

Follow us on twitter, like us on Facebook or just check out the website - but above all, come join us in Amsterdam this October!

See you there :)

Hopelijk net als vorig jaar gezellig en leuk!

Assuming a lot of people who show up where also on Fanfest, they all will be speaking english. Just you know... english is learned in the NLs from primary school and up, so almost everyone speaks it.

Last year there were quite a few brits as well as people from germany, norway, sweden, switzerland, iceland, etc. All presentations will be done in English too.

I have to ask, because I just saw that the tickets were up on the website...
...What does €36,85 get me, aside from *access* to the Theater? Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticising, but that's still a lot of isk for a student. Especially since a train ticket to get there costs €23+ retour (and that's with 40% korting) and you are looking at a minimum outlay of €50-100, depending on how 'gezellig' it is (Amsterdam and fancy places aren't cheap. God help you if you start buying rounds of drinks).
Presentations I can follow online. I doubt any Dev is gonna say anything drastically new, exciting, revealing etc. They've proven that they don't listen to the player base and push unwanted changes through regardless of feedback.

Basically the format of last year (pub, drinking, stories, a dev) appeals to me more.

Also:
"Evesterdam is organised by Valentijn Geirnaert (Dierdra Vaal in Eve) as a 100% volunteer, non-profit event"
So a non-profit event charging money for entrance? Why? Because the webshop costs money in order to purchase tickets? Huh? Get a big(ger) pub. Entrances to pubs are usually free ! Huzzah.

Unless ofc you get free drinks included in the price, then It's all good.

The only thing I fear, is running out of beer !

No, tickets because renting a venue for 150+ people in the center of Amsterdam cost me €4000. If you feel that the price isn't worth it that is your call, but the majority of feedback I got after last year was that people wanted more presentations and things like that. And the only way to provide that is by renting a venue. And venues cost money. We have more stuff planned but I can't commit to any of that unless we reach a certain number of tickets sold (and thus create room in the budget).

So for now what is guaranteed is a great venue with presentations and awesome Evesterdammers :D
