BubbleConf 2013 Recap (Director’s Cut)

By Ninh Bui on October 3rd, 2013

BubbleConf is a conference on tech, design and entrepreneurship by Nedap and Phusion. It is targetted towards startups and the 2013 edition was held in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam on September 27th. It had close to 400 people from all over the world attend and we were blown away once again by the positive energy we received from the crowd.

We can’t even describe how much it meant for us to have you all come out to our venue that day: you folks really were the icing on the cake for us in working on this conference for the past 8 months or so. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and we couldn’t be happier to have shared a day filled with inspiration with all of you.

But all good things have to come to an end, and in wrapping up BubbleConf 2013, we’d like to list the photos, videos and reviews that were taken on that day.


The guys over at TayloredTales did an amazing job at capturing the day itself. The first video should give you an idea of what BubbleConf 2013 was like from an attendee’s point of view.

The videos of the talks themselves that were held in the main room will be put up shortly as well. Please stay tuned, you really don’t want to miss out any of them!

If you’ve attended BubbleConf, please let us know what we got right/wrong, we’d love to know! You should have received a link to our survey via the mailinglist about this, but feel free to send in happy thoughts to us via email!

Stay Classy Amsterdam!


BubbleConf was born out of the desire to have a conference that would cater to startups in a multifaceted way by covering the topics we felt were most important for tech startups: tech, design and entrepreneurship. By putting these topics in wedlock, we had hoped to be able to bring together as many people from different fields to come share their war stories with one another. And possibly even form new startups. We felt there were so many diamonds in the rough in the Netherlands that really deserved a spot in the limelight: they would be able to do amazing things when given the right opportunities.

We’re incredibly excited to see that we have at least been able to accomplish a few of those goals that we set out to achieve when looking back at BubbleConf. We really hope our attendees will continue working on their projects and work towards putting the Netherlands/Europe on the startup map. We will certainly continue to do so with our own startup Phusion 😉

As for a 2014 edition of BubbleConf, that might be a bit too early to think about at this point: everyone involved from Nedap and Phusion are still recovering from the 8 months or so of time they put into organizing BubbleConf 2013. Regardless of whether or not there will be a 2014 edition, we hope you have enjoyed BubbleConf 2012 and 2013: we certainly did!
